Best Place for a First Date

From the 02/22/2010 edition

Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse

Multiple locations


This triple-crown winner clearly resonates with readers because it delivers the goods on lots of fronts. Hyde's fine, aged steaks always arrive sear-crusted and juicy inside, because policy here dictates that prime pieces of beef should be cooked at 1,800 degrees - you certainly can't do that at home! But why would you, especially when you consider that Hyde's hospitality-minded staff is there to pamper you in a suave and swanky setting that's sure to impress a first date?
