November 3, 2017 (Thrillist) – No matter how many food trends come and go, the steakhouse is always there, waiting to welcome special-occasion celebrators, expense-account abusers, and anyone else who just really likes steak served up with a seared, juicy symbol of American excess. From old to new, these are the 31 best places to score a steak in America.
B&B Butchers – Since opening a couple of years ago, B&B has cemented itself at the top of Houston’s steak hierarchy, which is no easy feat in cattle-crazed Texas. They expertly prepare a variety of beef types (A5 Kobe, Texas wagyu, USDA prime), all cut in their on-premises butcher shop, much of it dry-aged in their aging room — if you’re the curious sort, they’re more than happy to let customers take a peek behind the metaphorical curtain at both. Of course, it’s entirely reasonable that you’ll have zero interest in separating yourself from your steak, especially if you try it carpetbagger style, which leaves it topped with a fried oyster and blue cheese. — Matt Lynch
