When it comes to meat, Philadelphia has a penchant for slicing steak and piling it on a long roll with melted cheese. But if the situation calls for a thick cut of beef served in a white-tablecloth setting with a glass of wine or a Manhattan, Philly can pull that off too.
Take a trip to an old-school steakhouse — complete with live piano — at The Prime Rib. Urban Farmer in Logan Square get specific on steak sourcing, highlighting farms in different states. There’s even an option for a super-luxe cheesesteak at Barclay Prime.
The restaurants below are listed geographically from north to south. Many of the city’s notable steakhouses are in Center City, close to office towers and the Avenue of the Arts — and since we’re talking prime cuts of beef, it’s no surprise a few of them are also on Eater’s list of restaurants worth splurging on.
