Old Homestead, 1959

I have been steeping out most evenings these days and have not had time for home cooking. So I thought I would post a restaurant review from the past. This restaurant is still in operation and I had a delicious steak there. It is not as good as Peter Luger's, but if you don't feel like travelling to Williamsburg the Old Homestead will do...

Old Homestead
56 Ninth Avenue (between 14th and 15th Sts.)
Open Sundays. Moderately priced.

In the wholesale meat section and founded for and by the local merchants a long time ago; in fact, the oldest steak house in the city. The fact that these vigorous and knowing trenchermen still crowd the small old shrine should be recommendation enough. Combines well with a walk in the Village, which is a short distance south.

.....the "wholesale meat section" of the city has certainly changed in 45 years.
