The perfect steak: It’s a simple yet elusive goal that some grill masters devote a lifetime to achieving.
However, at these meccas of meat, expertly cooked cuts are within easy reach — lovingly prepared with a minimum of ingredients. At the best steakhouses across the country, it all begins with premium beef. Steaks are dry-aged and often seasoned with little more than a sprinkle of sea salt, allowing pure, unadulterated beef flavor to shine through. While some steakhouses give off an old-school vibe, others match their elegantly restrained cuisine with modern minimalist décor.
