Phoenix New Times' Description

The first and last word in old-school cool in dowtown Phoenix. For more than half a century, the house Jack Durant built has served up class by the barrelful as well as classics like sautéed chicken livers, oysters Rockefeller, lamb chops with mint jelly, and Delmonico steaks, to name a few. Serious fressers can eat their way to a plaque on the wall by polishing off Durant's 48-ounce porterhouse, and you get to do so in leather booths that once hosted Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, and Robert Mitchum, among other luminaries. Walking through the kitchen to the dining room is an experience in and of itself. And the bar crowd is lively and entertaining. Partake in the legend for yourself by imbibing a few dry martinis or a Dewar's on the rocks whilst relaxing in a banquette once occupied by Barry Goldwater. You'll be totally money, baby.

  • Phoenix New Times on 11/12/10

    2010 Best of Phoenix Winner: Best Old-School Steak House! For a vintage vibe, cozy up in the lounge or hang out in one of the booths, surrounded by red velvet wallpaper and lavish flower arrangements.

  • Phoenix New Times on 11/03/10

    2010 Best of Phoenix Winner: Best Competitive Eating Splurge! The restaurant began offering the 48-ounce Porterhouse Challenge in 1996 & has since racked up a pantheon of more than 1,200 eaters.

    Go to Durant's and enter through the kitchen. Order anything on the menu and you will feel bliss. It's a time warp event back to the 50s and Dean Martin's martini hour.

  • Phoenix New Times on 01/27/12

    Best of Phoenix 2011: Best Old School Steak House! Servin' up slabs of perfectly prepared New York strip steaks and a hell of a good martini or two!

    Get a yummy steak. Ask them if it's corn or grain fed.
