Dallas great meal

Visiting Dallas on business from Bay Area and I had one night for dinner alone. I chose Meddlesome Moth, and am so glad I did. Great service at the bar. Incredible selection of beers. Must haves: Caeser salad (yes, really), Thai Mussels (best mussels I've ever eaten), and broccolini (with braised tomatoes, grana padano, and toasted almonds). So many other things to try on my next visit!

Cotes du Boeuf

It's a tragedy. I'm going to try and go back in December to see if they've come to their senses.

Cotes du Boeuf

After years of enjoying this delicacy at Balthazar, I was stunned to find they recently changed the preparation there. Very different flavor and presentation. No vegetables, no onion rings. I was disappointed, to say the least. Other opinions on this?

I will try Alexander's next. Would you believe that my wife and I are both doctors and we still eat this way?

I never thought to try a chain, but am willing to give it a shot! Thanks.

You are probably right, and thanks for the suggestions. Of note, I happened to eat at Andres Steak House in Naples, Florida and was shocked to find that they prepared the steak exactly the way I wanted it. So I decided not to give up on my search! Try Andres if ever in Naples.

Not tried any true steakhouses in the area, but have had a couple of very good steaks at The Village Pub and hit or miss at Los Altos Grill.

Looking for NYC-style steak in Bay Area

My first post to this most helpful site... I moved from NYC to Bay Area (Los Altos, actually) a year ago. Have been trying to find a place that serves steaks like I used to eat at Wolfgang's and Peter Luger's ("steak for two" from the menu). This means dry-aged porterhouse, high-temperature broiled, served sliced on a porcelain platter propped up at an angle so the juices are ready and waiting to be spooned over the top.

Oh how I miss it! Are there any New York transplants who can tell me if I can get a steak like this near Los Altos or anywhere in the Bay Area? I've certainly had some good cuts of meat at local restaurants I've tried, but they're prepared differently and just don't create the same experience.

Thanks in advance!
