Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse, New Orleans
A go-to for New Orleans power brokers (R&B singer Allen Toussaint is a regular) and visiting A-listers like Chris Noth and Jennifer Garner, this clubby subterranean establishment in the French Quarter serves a winning combination of USDA prime beef and Creole classics. The 16-ounce cast-iron-seared New York strip is a favorite. The more extravagant house filet arrives topped with béarnaise and sides of fried oysters, creamed spinach, and ham- and caramelized onion–flecked Pontalba potatoes. For a local twist, order the rib eye with Abita-spiked barbecue sauce and head-on shrimp. dickiebrennanssteakhouse.com
