Are you looking at Blackstone Steakhouse for your special date night and feeling uncertain it’s the right place? It is, I can almost guarantee it, so let me tell you why. It’s one of the finest restaurants on Long Island for a reason (or for many reasons, actually).
When Blackstone Steakhouse came on the scene, it immediately made an impression and took its place towards the head of the class. Need proof? It is one of three Anthony Scotto restaurants (the other two are Insignia and RARE650) on the Top 10 list of steakhouses. And it deserves the praise.
These three sister restaurants offer elegance, charm, and great food. They do differ, but if you’ve had the pleasure of eating at any of them, you know you’re in for a great night when you visit the other. Although Blackstone, with its beautiful dark woods, is the more traditional looking of the three, don’t think it’s not innovative or modern at all. Its sushi, steaks, and chops are the best mix of the classic and unconventional.

Steaks & Chops
The USDA Prime 45-day dry-aged steaks offered by Blackstone Steakhouse are truly spectacular. Which steak cut do you prefer? Not sure? Then let me help you.
For a bit of everything, order T-bone or the giant Classic Porterhouse steak if you are really hungry. For those of you who live for the most marbled parts, Bone-In Rib Steak is a perfect choice. If you are in the mood for the most tender cut of beef, then Petite Filet, Filet Mignon, or Sirloin steaks will satisfy the craving. If none of the above sparks an interest, then opt for Colorado Lamb Chops.
And there are so many steak enhancement options – truffle butter, avocado butter, Gorgonzola cheese, Lobster Baravoise, and more. Whatever is your heart’s (read stomach’s) desire, Blackstone Steakhouse can and will grant it.

I know that many people feel obliged to order a steak when they are in a steakhouse, but honestly, there is no shame in trying other things on the menu when you are in the Blackstone restaurant.
They offer ultra-fresh and delicious nigirizushi, as well as a huge list of innovative and tasty sushi rolls. Don’t forget about the raw bar, too. And their salads – even true meat lovers will not find fault in their salads.
Blackstone Steakhouse also has a pretty solid dessert menu that includes a banana cream pie and key lime pie – great desserts that will make any sweet-toothed soul happy. And as for their beverage list, the restaurant can guarantee you’ll be satisfied with their 500-bottle wine list, sake, tequila, whiskey, beer, and cocktails choices.

Dining in a restaurant can become very off-putting if there are risks to your health, right? As it should be. But there are safety precautions that you and dining establishments’ can take to minimize the risks.
Your part is really not hard: just wear a mask. For Blackstone Steakhouse, the matter is more complicated, but they’ve risen to the occasion beautifully.

And the menus are available online or as disposable paper ones.
Currently, Blackstone Steakhouse can only accommodate a party of up to ten people per table. If your group has more people, then you’ll be seated at different tables.
