Known For

The lowdown

The definitive old-school Meatpacking District steakhouse, complete with a tacky cow sculpture out front, the now-shopworn Old Homestead has seen better days. But it still serves up some of the best steaks in town, and the experience is inimitable. Who knows, with the resurgence of this neighborhood as a destination for diners and revelers, the Old Homestead may someday soon be rewarded for hanging on all these years.
