Meat, the handsomest of the nine food groups, gets its good looks from spice rubs, tenderizers, and long soaks in anti-aging marinades. Ogle seductive slabs with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale steakhouse fare and wine at George Martin's Strip Steak in Great River.
Strip Steak, the newest venture from restaurateur George Martin, serves up a gourmet steakhouse menu of savory dry-aged meats, as well as seafood, chops, and other house specialties. Diners can commence consumption with chili pop shrimp, tossed in a sweet-and-spicy chili sauce ($10) or lobster, fontina, and crab fondue served with grilled ciabatta ($15). Strip Steak's raw bar boasts seared tuna sashimi ($12) or a dozen little-neck clams ($15) to warn stomachs of their imminent filling. To please perspicacious palates, the restaurant's “Certified Angus” strip steaks are aged for 21 days before being charred in high-heat broilers and sliced upon request, as in the 18-ounce New York sirloin ($38). Fishy dishes such as crabmeat-stuffed Norwegian salmon ($25) and filet mignon with lobster tail ($46) may prompt even shy diners to burst into celebratory sea shanties. Guests can relax in the intimate setting of the reclaimed turn-of-the-century house and sip spirits from the extensive wine list while soaking in art-deco decor.

George Martin's Strip Steak
Chefs at George Martin's Strip Steak stand guard at roiling broilers, anticipating the exact moment when each dry-aged Angus steak within has perfectly browned. Ladles of béarnaise and au poivre sauces in hand, the kitchen staff sends each order—flanked by ramekins of sautéed vegetables or hand-cut french fries—out into the cozy, candlelit dining room. Wines and signature cocktails, such as ginger cosmopolitans, pair with each entree, including the restaurant's eponymous steaks, free-range chicken, brazilian lobster tails, and veal chops. George Martin's Strip Steak also caters special events, from small gatherings in its private dining rooms to onsite celebrations for up to 100 tuxedoed mannequins.
