Best Steakhouses in the U.S.

Best Steakhouses in the U.S.: Barclay Prime

Courtesy of STARR RESTAURANTS

Barclay Prime, Philadelphia

With green suede sofas and a clubby soundtrack, Stephen Starr’s Rittenhouse Square chophouse is designed for 21st-century carnivores and martini swillers. The Philly cheesesteak also gets an upgrade: a foot-long combination of Wagyu rib eye, truffled fontina, mushrooms, onions, and pickled hot peppers on a sesame-seed Italian loaf. A sandwich this good calls for celebrating and, in fact, comes with a half bottle of bubbly. Generally, the beef is excellent, and the steak knife selection is gimmicky, yet fun—ask to test-drive all six (Wusthof, Henckels, Laguiole, Porsche, Global, and Shun).
