Best Steakhouse: Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse

From the March 29, 2012 edition

From the original Upper Arlington location — a cozy, fireplace-filled spot great for intimate conversations — to the see-and-be-seen stunner on the Cap, Hyde Park is the city’s ultimate date-night destination.

The menu is filled with dishes designed to impress. Start with a platter of glistening oysters on the half shell, then a towering wedge salad, then on to a buttery, dry-aged steak. The Filet Mignon is a classic favorite, or go for something even more indulgent — Hyde Park does bacon-wrapped, blue-cheese drenched tenderloin, New York strip infused with roasted garlic cloves, and even a jaw-dropping, 34-ounce Wagyu ribeye served on the bone.
