It seems that restaurants that have a nice but masculine décor along with a menu designed to trigger the males taste buds are becoming a few and far between. However there are still some around that do still appeal to the manliest of men and here they are in no particular order.
Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse in New York City offers the best aged and prepared steaks in the area, including the 28 day dry aged porterhouse (22.5 ounces). They also serve huge Australian lobster tails and some great crab cakes along with other selections of Kobe beef.
If you are in the mood for Italian food then head to Kirkland, Washington and visit Café Juanita where Northern Italian classics abound; including tagliatelle with pancetta and marjoram or even rabbit raviolini with butter and sage. The restaurants menu does change regularly but it is cooked with local organic ingredients as well as the best imported direct from Italy.
When in Atlanta, Georgia you need to visit Ann’s Snack Bar, don’t just take our word for it, because not too long ago the Wall Street Journal declared Atlanta to be the best city in which to get burgers and specifically mentioned Ann’s Snack Bar as the place to get the best burgers.

In the mood for Creole? Then head to New Orleans and Tujague’s Restaurant which is located in the French Quarter and is one of the city’s oldest restaurants.

If you are looking for a more 1950 American meal feel then you will want to check out Dal Rae in Pico Rivera, CA.

And, one more for you prime rib lovers is “Lawry’s the Prime Rib” in Chicago, located in a 19th century mansion, the most opulent of settings among restaurants and with the most delicious of foods. Be sure to order the English cut as it is extra thick and will bring out the rich flavor; and there is, of course, a dress code in effect here.
