New York’s Oldest Dry-Aged Steaks, Ranked by Age


New York’s Oldest Dry-Aged Steaks, Ranked by Age
by Linette Lopez


Yesterday, Bon Appétit released its massive dry-aging story online, obviously putting Grub Street in the mood for a great steak. But where to find some seriously old beef in New York? While 28 days still seems to be the norm for dry-aging, there are plenty of places going far beyond that to concentrate their steaks' funk and tang as much as possible. We called around to figure out which restaurants are dry-aging their meat the longest — skipping places that wet-age their meat — then ranked them according to how long they let their beef sit.

Funky Town.
