9. George Martin's Strip Steak, Great River

The peak of the George Martin Group restaurants, Strip Steak updates the steakhouse approach, making it work for more than carnivores. Excellent service and consistently fine American cooking are the lures at George Martin's Strip Steak, a deluxe offspring of the original George Martin in Rockville Centre. It's a prime site that looks grand, at the end of the Southern State Parkway. Recommended: oysters Rockefeller, crabmeat cocktail, crabcake, porterhouse steak for two, filet mignon, maple-brined Berkshire pork chop, merlot-braised short ribs, apple crisp.

George Martin's Strip Steak hosts dinners in February highlighting craft beers and bourbon.

The brews will flow Feb. 8, when the restaurant will offer a four-course dinner for $55 per person. Four Belgian brews will accompany a meal that includes poached pulled chicken with cabbage slaw, wild salmon in a pretzel crust with shaved asparagus and "mustard caramel," beef short rib with roasted root vegetables, and a Belgian chocolate cupcake with chocolate creme anglaise.

On Feb. 21, there will be a five-course Maker's Mark dinner. The cost is $85 per person. On the menu: hickory-smoked salmon and cabbage slaw, with a Maker's Mark whiskey sour; lamb chop with Yukon gold potato cake, with a bourbon-and-grapefruit cocktail; a "blonde stew" of chicken and vegetables with Innis & Gunn Scottish beer; filet mignon with a Maker's Mark 46 Manhattan; and bread pudding and ice cream with a vanilla Old Fashioned.

Both dinners start at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are required.
