Love a good steak? Then these shrines to meat should be on your list. From grand Las Vegas carnivore temples helmed by world-famous chefs to old-school Middle-American chophouses where a rib-eye is preceded by a visit to the salad bar, from clubby Chicago dining rooms loaded with mahogany and brass to New York institutions with now-household names, America has no shortage of great steakhouses. These are the 50 best.
Chandlers Steakhouse in Boise has once again been voted a favorite among locals, capturing a number of notable awards in this year’s Idaho Statesman Best of Treasure Valley awards.
Chef David Knickrehm in Idaho’s Sysco Kitchen talks with Rex Chandler and Chef Luis Flores about Chandlers using the world’s best beef. Chandlers restaurant is known for their prime steaks, and sources their beef from four main sources; USDA Prime (considered to be the benchmark in the US grading system), American Kobe (combination of Wagyu and Black Angus, which is richly marbled), Japanese Wagyu (directly imported from Japan, and it is the most marbled steak available – absolutely the prime), and also a natural, organic grass-fed beef from Eastern Oregon.
