Best New Steakhouse 2009
Flatiron, a Manhattan-style chophouse that has skyrocketed in popularity since debuting in August 2008, is a steakhouse with options. There are the variations of grass-fed, USDA Prime beef: flatiron, hanger steak, filet mignon, 10-ounce New York strip, and one-pound rib-eye. There are the seven complementary sauces, which include chimichurri, habañero, and pecorino truffle fondue. And there are the portion sizes: the full eight-ounce and the petite five-ounce, which leaves less-ravenous diners sufficient room for chef/owner Craig Stafford’s savory sides and desserts. Throw in inventive non-steak entrées such as ground duck burger and caramelized sea scallops, and it’s enough to leave you frozen over your menu, paralyzed by an abundance of choice. Don’t fret: There’s an excellent possibility you’ll soon schedule a return trip, anyway.
