Why we love it

Executive chef: Victor Jimenez

The award-winning, ride-’em-cowboy digs—hello, indoor fire pits—are one reason to dine at this long-standing East Village steakhouse. But so is the meaty food. Executive chef Victor H. Jimenez serves world-class New American fare like New York-style Hokkaido wagyu (flown in from Japan) and smoked garlic mac and cheese.

    Cowboy star never disappoints! The service, the food, the cocktails, the prices… worth every penny. I’ve gone a dozen times and I have yet to find something I don’t like about this place!

    First timers! I really enjoyed the whole experience. The bread-phenomenal. We ordered the duck and the New York strip -incredible. For our sides we ordered the esquites and the double baked potato. For dessert we tried the banana pudding and I just felt like I was getting pampered. Everything was so good. We sat at the bar and you get to watch the chefs prepare all the dishes- fascinating!! 10/10
