This acclaimed restaurant from a chef named Wolfgang isn't from Wolfgang Puck. Instead, this classic New York City steakhouse is from owner Wolfgang Zwiener. A few blocks away from the Hudson River in Lower Manhattan, Wolfgang's boasts a superb wine selection, big steaks, and a mahogany bar.

Wolfgang Zwiener's Times Square steakhouse is right in the heart of everything, off 41st Street in Manhattan. The Times Square steakhouse is a prime spot for excellent steaks, seafood, and chops, paired with the trademark Zwiener wine list. Start off the meal with a selection from the appetizer menu, like the seafood platter or a sizzling slice of Canadian bacon. Pair the appetizer with one of the Wolfgang's prime steaks, prepared in their own "aging boxes." Select from one of the porterhouses (good for two or more), a prime New York sirloin steak, a rib eye steak, or a filet mignon.

The Knickerbocker Bar and Grill doesn't have much to do with the New York Knicks, aside from a basketball game on the screen. Instead, the Knickerbocker Bar and Grill is one of New York's most acclaimed steak restaurants. Close to New York University and the East Village, the Knickerbocker offers superb steaks and fish. Stop in for one of the nights when the Knickerbocker features live jazz for some tunes with the food. Start off the Knickerbocker meal with some of its famed seafood starters like the fresh Atlantic and Pacific oysters, pan-seared diver scallops, or lobster bisque with a 1/2 lobster tail. The Knickerbocker t-bone steaks are cut for one to four people and topped with onion rings. Each of the steaks and chops are also served with the special Knickerbocker creamed spinach.

Manhattan's West Side is the home to one of the homes of Manhattan's venerable Palm steakhouses. The West Side location is an ideal choice for those strolling through Manhattan or taking in a show in the Theater District. Stop in before or after for one of the Palm's signature steaks or seafood dishes along with one of the Palm's fine cocktails or wines. Begin the meal with one of the Palm's delectable appetizers like the colossal lump crabmeat cocktail or the carpaccio of beef tenderloin. Those prepare diners for the main course. Try the "Chairman's Reserve" boneless rib-eye steak or the bone-in Colorado veal rib chop. For a special experience, try the prime double-cut New York strip that is sliced in front of diners.
