Definitely the top 3 best steakhouse in Philly. It’s beautiful. The service was impeccable. Serious about social distancing. The bathrooms are individual. Seats 400, but during Covid no more than 100 per dining experience. Very impressive layout. Steak 48 is vibrant and a desirable place to be. If you’re afraid of heights, Steak 48 is going to be the next hot social scene in 2021 to be see and be seen, while enjoying the best steak served in Philly. Sorry Hugo’s Frog, if you’re a long time reader you know that was my king of steak for years.
