11500 W. Huguenot Road
Second Place: Buckhead’s Chop House
Third Place: Morton’s the Steakhouse
The old-school, two-fisted, meat-and-martini, real urban steakhouses are becoming scarce these days. But at Ruth’s Chris, you can always count on that massive hunk of USDA prime, from juicy rib-eyes to T-bones, cooked to a perfect walked-through-a-warm-room rare. And don’t forget the expertly executed sides such as subtle garlic mashed potatoes, buttery, diaphanous creamed spinach or addictive shoestring fries, with of course, a considerable pour of bombastic, leggy Cabernet, at the tried and true, always on point spot on Huguenot. For the whiskey lovers and oenophiles, Buckhead’s food and booze menus are practically a religion. And if you find yourself downtown, Morton’s prime New York strip — and signature cocktails — could never, would never, disappoint.
