Before there were scented foams, supplementary truffle fees, and marathon tasting menus, there was the steakhouse. There were dark upholstered leather booths and balding waiters in tuxes, tiny lamps perched atop white linen tablecloths and old-school crème brûlée for dessert. There was Don Draper.

Steak -- rich and uncomplicated, good on its own and stellar with a sizeable pat of compound butter and creamed spinach for good measure -- is the original romantic dinner. Whether you embrace the porterhouse or daintily slice it over a salad, here are 8 ways to recreate it at home this Valentine's Day. Next up: track down a tux.

I wish you'd offer a broiler or stovetop griddle option for recipes designed for outdoor grilling. NYC-ers are BBQ challenged!

That is a great suggestion! Thanks so much. We've taken note -- lord knows I could use some tips for how to make steak in NYC. Until then, here's a video from our broiled steak contest a while back: http://food52.com/blog...
