Compared to Gibbys and Rib ‘N Reef, the steaks at MĆ©chant Boeuf are less pricey but that doesn’t mean the steaks are less tasty.

Seven ounces of a New York cut sirloin goes for $24 at this Old Port spot or you can knock back a tenderloin for a well-priced $45. There’s also a Quebec hanger steak for just under $35, a seriously tasty tomahawk steak to share, t-bones, porterhouses, and Kansas steaks.

Keep these guys on your radar for a tasty and inexpensive steak night.
