America's Oldest Steakhouse Has Been Open Since The 1800s
The oldest operating steakhouse in the U.S. is The Old Homestead Steakhouse on New York City's 9th Ave. When it opened in 1868, it only had five tables and sold steak for 10 cents.
The eatery is currently owned by brothers Marc and Greg Sherry, whose grandfather, Harry, bought it over 70 years ago after working his way up from a dishwasher.
Per the restaurant’s website, Greg says, “Patrons come here for [...] mammoth cuts of the highest quality USDA prime dry-aged beef. They know they're getting quantity and quality.”
Approaching the steakhouse, you'll find Annabell, a cow statue placed above the entrance. Inside, the eatery has several red booths where patrons dine while enjoying jazz music.
Ruth Reichl said in her review for The New York Times, "When you order a porterhouse for two, a prodigious steak arrives, thicker than the Manhattan phone book and twice as heavy."
The Old Homestead Steakhouse has opened two other locations in casinos — one in Atlantic City and another in Las Vegas — and doesn’t show signs of slowing down anytime soon.
