Best place for steak in the Triangle?

I understand that the Angus Barn gets much of its reputation for service (and the wine list), not the food, so...where else in the Triangle can one get high-quality steak? I'm most interested in the quality of food, rather than the whole dining experience. I'd be curious to hear folks' opinion of places in Chapel Hill, Durham, and the Raleigh area. I've lived in Chapel Hill for ten years, and aside from the very occasional good steak at Acme in Carrboro, I am at a loss on this question.

COOKBOOK RECOMENDATION FOR YOUNG, BEGINNING COOK

Mark Bittman's _How to Cook Everything_ is indispensible and utterly reliable. Whenever I have a question about cooking basics, I go to this book, and it never disappoints.
