STK is nothing like the steakhouses of old. You won’t find antiques on the walls, or dark wood walls.

Offering perfect choice cuts such as a petit filet, a New York strip steak, a skirt steak, bone-in filets, bone-in rib eye steaks, and filet mignons, you certainly won’t have a hard time choosing something to order here. If you’re really hungry, they offer large steaks like their 32 oz porterhouse steak, or a 34 oz cowboy rib steak! While STK is about providing excellent fare, including sides like creamy yukon potatoes, sweet corn pudding and creamed spinach to go along with your steak, they are also about providing an experience that will have you feeling like you want to socialize and have a great time.

If a great steak is something you’re craving, then the menu at L’Assiette on Melrose is calling your name. Steak and frites is pretty much the entire menu. Sure, there are a few other items like a fish of the day, a house soup and salad along with a nice selection of desserts, but those are mere afterthoughts. L’Assiette serves the highest quality prime Nebraska beef, Coulotte cut and prepared sous-vide. Its frites are a pretty stellar accompaniment — hand cut from Kennebec potatoes, prepared in an eight-step, 24-hour process and cooked in beef tallow. Yum.
