Power Steak

The website Business Insider published “What’s the best new ‘power steak’ in New York City?” by Melissa Stanger and Linette Lopez on March 25, 2015 and “Wall Street has a new favorite power steak” by Linette Lopez on April 28, 2015. The term “power steak” is a reflection of the earlier “power breakfast/lunch” and also means “power steakhouse” (or powerful eating environment). A “power steak” is not simply about the steak, but also the powerful people who come to the steakhouse to eat it.

As Business Insider explained on March 25, 2015, a “power steak” is “the kind of steak you think of when you want to take out clients, get together with friends, or celebrate with colleagues.”

With that in mind, Business Insider wants to know which new steaks on the scene may have what it takes to overcome the odds and become a staple “power steak” — the kind of steak you think of when you want to take out clients, get together with friends, or celebrate with colleagues.

A good “power steak” isn’t just about the cut of meat either, it’s also about the scene. In the last couple of years we’ve seen power steaks not just in steakhouses, but also in intimate spaces in the West Village, and to exclusive restaurants in the Lower East Side.

When you walk into the new New York City location of Mastro’s Steakhouse on a Thursday night, you’re greeted with the singular sound of bankers by the dozen. They’re doing deals, they’re entertaining clients, and they’re celebrating (if they’re lucky).

Most important, they are crowning a new king of New York City “power steaks.”
