Chicago Cut, Ruth's Chris named top steakhouses in U.S.


Ruth's Chris Steak House and Chicago Cut Steakhouse have been picked as Top 5 Steakhouses in America by Yahoo! Finance.

The list was compiled by chef Allison Fishman-Task, host of "Blue Ribbon Hunter" on Yahoo! and author of the upcoming book "Cooking Light Lighten Up, America!" Fishman-Task selected Ruth's Chris (Northbrook, South Barrington, Chicago), Chicago Cut Steakhouse (Chicago) as well as Keens (Manhattan), Peter Luger (Brooklyn) and Bern's Steak House (Tampa, Fla.)

"You know it's a good steakhouse if there's a dry aging room," Fishman-Task explains. "Definitely go for the dry-aged steaks. The steak loses some of its water content but develops impeccable flavor."

Chicago Cut Steakhouse was referred to as the "trendiest" of the bunch by Fishman-Task.
