First Taste

Steak 44 in Arcadia: a Modern Steakhouse With a Neighborhood Feel

When a new spot opens in town, we can't wait to check it out -- and let you know our initial impressions, share a few photos, and dish about some menu items. First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).

Restaurant: Steak 44 Location: 5101 N. 44th St. Open: About a month Eats: Steakhouse Price: $30 to $50 a person

Steakhouses are boring. They're outdated. They're overpriced. At least that's what most self-proclaimed enlightened diners would say. In many -- if not most -- cases those generalizations are sadly true.

But they don't apply to Arcadia's new neighborhood steakhouse, Steak 44.
