This has always been a predictable category in the past. Laurelhurst would place first with a long list of the same restaurants in slightly different order every year. Not so this time. Yes, the winner is the same, but the rest of the list is shaken up a bit by the absence of more than four restaurants with enough votes to make it to the list. I wonder if part of that is due to the enormous popularity of the relatively new restaurant, OX. If you want more detailed descriptions, you’ll find my steakhouse showdown reviews here.
In years past, the order was:
2012: Laurelhurst 41%, Ringside 20%, El Gaucho 10%, Ox 4%, Ruth’s Chris, Morton’s, Nostrana, Paley’s Place, Urban Farmer, Firehouse.
2011: Laurelhurst, El Gaucho
