“We’re the King of Beef” (Old Homestead)
The Old Homestead steakhouse is in the heart of the meatpacking district, at 56 Ninth Avenue. It claims to be New York's oldest steakhouse (since 1868).

A steer over the entrance proclaims: "We're the King of Beef."

At the wide-angled northeast corner of Ninth and West 14th Street, nine stuccoed and whitewashed early 19th-century, three-story houses wrap around and up the avenue, standing out dramatically from their surroundings. The row's north end is home to the Old Homestead, No.56 Ninth Avenue, which bills itself as New York's oldest steakhouse, established in 1868. Don't miss the entrance marquee, with its statue of a steer inscribed, "We're the King of Beef."
