review for Old Homestead Steakhouse,56 9th Ave,New York, There was a burger war in New York when I arrived and it was between Daniel Boulud of Daniels fame and db Bistro Moderne and Marc Sherry of Old Homestead, the oldest Steak House in New York. Many column inches were written about it by food critics and, critics and just people who thought they should throw their five cents in. Well, there will be no coinage thrown in from me as I am saving up for my next burger. But let me tell you, the Kobe beef burger served up at Old Homestead is simply the finest burger I have ever tasted. Bar none.

I read with interest, critics panning the price of the burger and even more so of the $50 sirloin burger with black truffles from db Bistro. Although I cannot comment on Mr Boulud’s offering, I can say that people who disregard this burger on price should have a think about the last time they spent $50 on a meal or even a round of drinks at most of the more up market bars. Never spent $50 dollars on a round of drinks? Tight ass.

To those who harp on about the ingredients? Who cares!!? It tastes superb and any one who disagrees should go back to licking the inside of the oven for their fine meal. Oven on or off? Your choice…

To those who say, “But it is only a burger and it is $40”, I would say disregard the fact that it is a burger and take on board the fact that it is 20 ounces of the most tender beef this planet has to offer. And to those who say, “But I have been and the meal was expensive once you include a starter and dessert”, All I can say is you should be removed from the planet before you cause mass starvation in North America or go back to Florida.

We went down to Old Homestead on a rainy Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the fine friendly service with one mission in mind. Craig and I ate a burger each and Craig could not even finish his fries! Dessert was not an option and a starter did not even occur. The bottle of Amarone was great and helped wash down the ecstatic burger experience. And after paying the bill I had to help Craig to the door as he had slipped into beef shock

My parting comment will be not to harp on about the history of the place but merely to say next time you spend $40 on a bottle of wine or a steak, wonder whether you will still be talking about that moment years from now. After a Kobe beef burger you will (by the way if you want cheese it is free). Oh and I am assured the rest of the menu is good too. But the burger…. Mmmmmm!

Final Word: What can I say. If you want the best burger on the planet then kobe beef is the way forward. Miss it and miss out big time!

+ Finest burger in the world?
- $41 for a burger!?

Member Pic I used to love the Old Homessteasd but it ahs gone down hill in the 4 years I have been visiting New York. don't bother. Its over priced, the food is decidedly average now. go to Bobby Brown's instead, excellent cuisine and superb wine if not a little cramped and the air con can be a little fierce!

Member Pic The service was THE WORST I've ever had in NYC. The food was very average. I've been an ardent food critic of all NY restaurants.... Usually I have great reviews. However, this restaurant was the worst restaurant that I've ever ate in NYC. Food was cold, service was even colder. Dirty bathrooms. Waited 1 hour for table. Staff doesn't care about you. Avoid!!
