STK NYC - 26 Little w 12th Street New York, NY 10014-1303 (212) 488-2110
At first glance, the outside of this restaurant seems low-key and understated. If you don't pay careful attention to the address of this place, you just might miss it. Hidden in the heart of the trendy Meatpacking District is this pricey yet delectable steakhouse. It's got a contemporary atmosphere, with a swanky vibe; and the service is superb. The staff is friendly, attentive, and readily available to serve you. The place is filled with people in their 20's and 30's looking for a place to see and be seen. It's a great "date" place too, but it does get loud and crowded at night, especially during weekends.
For appetizers, what I recommend people to start out with is the Lil' Big Macs. Trust me, they're not your average Big Macs that you'd normally order at a McDonald's. They certainly don't taste like one either. These little burgers are so sinfully good. For the main course, go with the 24 oz. porterhouse. It's actually big enough for you to share with another person. What's unusual about this place is that they charge you extra for toppings on your steak. Go with the peppercorn crust if you can handle a little kick with your steak. As for the side dish, go with the mixed mushrooms. I'm a big fan of shrooms and believe me, you can't go wrong with this dish. Now for dessert, I strongly recommend you get the STK funny bone. It's a chocolate cake topped with peanut butter and caramelized bananas with chocolate ice cream on the side. This dessert is so good, you won't regret ordering it. For those who are on a diet, I suggest you loosen up a little; you only live once. :)
