Steaks, along with black coffee, entire pies, and eau de lawnmower, are an essential part of the 1950s Tough Gent's Diet Plan. Get tough with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of steaks, seafood, and more at Jake's Steakhouse, located on Broadway in the Bronx.
Combining the white-tablecloth elegance of fine dining with the camaraderie of a casual pub, Jake's Steakhouse pleases both formal and informal guests with its wide selection of tasty steaks and frosty brews. Dinner-timers can scan the menu for a hefty hunk of delicious meat, from Jake's filet mignon, topped with melty blue cheese and port wine sauce ($38), to the American rack of lamb, served with either gravy or a heated mint jelly ($34). Hungry land sharks and vacationing dolphins can gain perspective on how the land views the sea with a plate full of shrimp scampi, sautéed with white wine and garlic and paired with sensuous steamed broccoli ($27). For lunch, meat mavens can still wolf down Jake's famous baby back ribs, a sweet and smoky entree glazed in savory barbecue sauce ($30). Jake's beer menu overflows with tasty craft brews, from the Arcadia Hop Mouth IPA ($6.50 for a 20 oz. draft) to the malty Sly Fox Oktoberfest ($7 for a 20 oz. draft).
Just a short walk from Yankee Stadium, Jake's Steakhouse features a low-key, booth-laden downstairs bar for casual banter, while those dressing up for the coronation of the King of New Jersey can stick to the elegant dining room. Call ahead or log on to Jake's website to make reservations.

- Replete with dark gleaming wood and crisp white table linens, both the casual downstairs bar-and-booths area and the more formal dining room upstairs retain the mellow affability of a local watering-hole, but add to it the polish that a football hero’s parents can only hope he’ll acquire in the Ivy League. – Jessica Branch, New York
- We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the steaks and the service here. This was absolutely manhattan quality at a more reasonable price. Great all around! – LynneT809085, Zagat
