The carnivores among us love a good steak. But there are eateries out there that elevate humble cuts of beef to sublime gourmet experiences. Restaurants have the ability to do things that you can’t at home, like dry age the steak for 18 months and cook it in a 1,000-degree broiler. One of the other great things about going to a classic steakhouse is the vibe. You want that old school kitsch kind of look. Here are five great old school steakhouses worth the trip.
