After the glowing reviews of a colleague I ate at Bobby Van’s on 230 Park. It’s considered to be one of the better NYC steakhouses (there are 4 in the chain, most in NYC).
I got a bone-in ribeye and some mushrooms.
I asked for a 145Â°F internal temperature and the decrepit waiter looked at me like I had three heads. “What does that mean?” I said medium rare…
The steak was pretty good, slightly overcooked but not as flavorful as what I had at Flames. It was also a bit dry for a ribeye and totally unseasoned. Still, not a bad cut.
The mushrooms provided some lubrication.
Not a religious experience, I’ll try the Old Homestead tomorrow hopefully.
