NYC Steakhouses – A Storied History

New York City is home to some of the country’s most historic steakhouses, some of which date back to the mid-1800s. They vary in style, atmosphere, and clientele, but they all have unique histories. If the walls could talk?

There were two different kinds of NYC steakhouses back in the day. One was the Cop House, modeled after old English taverns, and the other was modeled after beef banquet halls where political fundraisers served all you could eat buffets of meat. 

Each of the NYC steakhouses mentioned below has a fascinating, storied history.
