On our first night in New York with the husband’s family, we were on a hunt for a good all-American steakhouse and found Del Frisco’s Steakhouse in the Avenue of the Americas as the nearest one with a great rating on Foursquare and Tripadvisor. We didn’t really check the reviews and failed to take a note of what most people were saying – EXPENSIVE. As we sat in the very posh salon of the restaurant, our jaws slightly dropped when we saw the prices on their menu. Ranging from USD45-USD100 per steak, we could’ve bought our own cattle and cooked it ourselves. I had to calm the husband down (he wanted to walk out of the restaurant) and showed how the prices are actually just like what we usually have in Dubai which actually is the truth.
Good thing that I was able to convince the husband to stay as we had the juiciest, the most tender, the tastiest and the most amazing steak we’ve ever had! We ordered the32 oz. wagyu longbone steak to share and though we had to share it, it was still too much for the two of us. I was a little bit concerned about it as I was famished when we got there but then when the waitress delivered the massive steak with its bone not fitting in the plate itself – I figured that they do mean serious business with their steaks. It might be a little too seasoned for some but it was the right amount of salt and pepper for my and the husband’s palette.
We had onion rings cut in massive portions along with salads and shoestring fries for our side. Needless to say, the whole meal was too much for all of us and we had to drag ourselves out there with full stomach. What I loved most about the place was, apart from the really good steak that they served us, although the decor of the restaurant was a little too intimidating for me it was not at all snobby. The servers were all efficient, welcoming and patient as they explained their specials for the night and answered any of our questions about our steaks. We didn’t have to wait for a long time for our food as the appetizers, drinks and main courses were all delivered to our table in no time. It’s quite impressive, to receive what exactly you paid for – a good service and an even better meal. I must admit that they do have the right to charge that amount of money.
