Another worthless subjective thread.
The best steak I've ever had was a prime NY Strip. Usually, not my favorite cut. But we spent all day rock climbing. We were exhausted. Got back to camp and realized we had brought no utensils or cookware. We cooked them over an open fire, pulled them off with our pocket knives, let them rest a little bit, and then just held them in our hands and bit off chunks. I'm sure it wasn't the best sourced or cooked steak I've ever had, but the surrounding experience still makes it the best steak I've enjoyed. That was about 18 years ago, and I still remember it quite vividly.
Maybe wineturtle will weigh in. He has sophisticated tastes. I have a tongue like a shingle. i'm one of those guys who, after having won the lottery, would go to Applebee's.
No, the best steakhouse in the US is The Prime @ the Bellagio hotel.
Been to Peter Luger's, Lonesome Dove in Fort Worth, as well as other run ins like Strip House, STK, BLT Prime, etc. The Prime takes it.
Wolfgang's in NY is underrated if you don't want to deal with Peter Luger's ridiculous reservation system.
