Best Steak in the U.S.

Slide 13 of 20

New Orleans

Generally regarded as a top seafood town, New Orleans also has a history of great steak—the first location of the international chain Ruth’s Chris Steak House opened on Broad Street in 1965.

Where to Eat: Chef Adolfo Garcia puts an Argentinean spin on meat at La Boca, where charred cuts of beef—rosy hanger steaks, citrus-marinated flank steaks—are complemented by an assortment of chimichurri sauces and a wine list heavy with South American Malbecs. At Besh Steaks in Harrah’s casino, hometown hero John Besh complements his juicy steaks with local ingredients, including crispy onion rings that have been beer-battered in Louisiana’s Abita Amber lager.
