When chef Laurent Tourondel's Atlanta outpost of his successful New York restaurant opened, people were skeptical that any Frenchman could make a steak better than our local institutions. But BLT STEAK (short for Bistro Laurent Tourondel) does beef proud. The restaurant's blazing-hot oven broils each steak — the New York strip is tops — until the surface is caramelized and crispy with char. Each steak is served in a sizzling cast iron pan, topped with a round of herbed butter and pierced with a whimsical plastic cow pick indicating its temperature. The long list of sides changes daily, but the gooey perfection of the potato gratin must be ordered when available. Chef Tourondel's signature complimentary Gruyere popovers arrive piping hot from the oven alongside soft butter and an oversized metal salt shaker. 45 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. (inside the W Atlanta downtown). 404-577-7601. www.bltrestaurants.com. less...

Bone's Restaurant
When it comes to steaks, sexy and sleek contemporary digs are all well and good, but there's something to be said about old-school steakhouses that have the marks of a boys' club.

When it comes to steaks, sexy and sleek contemporary digs are all well and good, but there's something to be said about old-school steakhouses that have the marks of a boys' club. BONE'S RESTAURANT is that place: loads of wood, men downing a scotch at the bar after a long day of work, seasoned servers in dapper jackets – but the steaks here are the real draw. The experienced kitchen churns out thick cuts of prime beef that are expertly cooked and always juicy thanks to a proper resting period. Notable steaks, such as the bone-in dry-aged New York strip, are extremely flavorful and even better with a glass of wine from the stellar list. less...

There surely are swanker steakhouses in town, but what does that matter when the steak on your plate at BONES tastes like butter?

There surely are swanker steakhouses in town, but what does that matter when the steak on your plate at BONES tastes like butter? No other steak in town comes close to the delicious flavor, the perfect char and the impeccable cook on these babies. We love the well-worn, good-old-boy, clubby digs, and waiters who seem to be channeling Joe Pesci. This place will put you in the mood for scotch and cigars even if you’re not that type of girl. less...

BONES. The name says it all. Macho. Old school. Meat. When the primal urge arises to violate your wallet and spend a week’s pay on a gorgeous hunk of prime beef, this is your destination. Time travel to Sinatra’s heyday as the maitre d’ shows you to a table in the “dog room,” order a stiff Manhattan, and don’t fill up too much on shrimp cocktail or smoked salmon. There’s a gloriously marbled, 1-pound-plus steak being grilled in the kitchen with your name on it. We love the brawny New York strip and the rib eye most, though more delicate sensibilities will certainly enjoy the filet mignon. less...

Despite the dry-aged numbers displayed by the front doors, the steaks served are mostly wet-aged. That's how we like them in Atlanta — like Larry King, aged to perfection, just a little salty and saucy, with well-behaved muscle, seared as ordered and served with no-nonsense sidekicks. The latter might include walnut-raisin bread, creamed spinach, a big salad and something warm and chocolate for dessert. less...

Red-blooded, all-American cravings can hardly be better satisfied than by the prime New York strip steaks and bone-in ribeyes grilled to order and served with a minimum of extraneous seasonings at the city's primo-macho steakhouse. Oversize lamb chops, shrimp and crab on ice, man-size salads, heart-stoppingly good onion rings, serious chocolate desserts and a red-heavy wine list also match the hankerings of the carnivorous bankers, brokers and business personalities who constitute Buckhead's power-dining scene. less...
