BLT Steak, New York
BLT Steak is celebrity chef Laurent Tourondel’s eponymous Midtown East venue (the name stands for Bistro Laurent Touronde). With its ebonized tables, zinc bar, and neutral suede banquettes, it’s Tourondel’s reinvention of the steakhouse as a chic dining destination. Meals at all BLT locations start with complimentary Gruyère popovers. Main dishes include both USDA Prime, Certified Angus, and American Wagyu beef cuts, as well as herb-crusted lamb and various seafood options. The sides are traditional, but creative: BBQ corn and truffle mashed potatoes, for example. Drink menu highlights include regional beers and a wine list with over 600 options.
