1. Raoul's 180 Prince Street, New York, NY 10012 (Soho)

If you’d never been to an old school-style steakhouse before you stepped into Raoul’s, you’d know -- from the moment you crossed the threshold from Prince St. to the bistro’s bohemian, time capsule of an interior -- that this is what it’s supposed to feel like. This is what it’s supposed to look like, sound like, and taste like. This is the real, live version of that place in your parents’ favorite movies. From front dining room to bar to covered atrium behind the kitchen, a night at Raoul’s, no matter where you sit, is an experience in French dining from decades past and as it was meant to be. It’s a New York institution that has remained unchanged since the 70s, because Raoul’s is perfect just the way it is… especially that steak au poivre.
