“One of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten in my life is at Raoul’s. I started eating at Raoul’s in the mid nineties. It’s a small French restaurant on Prince Street [in New York City]. It’s an amazing place; it’s iconic.” – Pat LaFrieda (Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors)

“A hidden gem that’s classic New York. I’ve been going with my father since I was twelve.” – Brett David (Rochelle’s)
