Just like everyone subscribes to Playboy for the articles, most people frequent strip clubs for the cuisine–right?Using lists from Chow.com and Time Out New York, among others, we compiled a list of the best strip club food.
From porterhouse steak to lobster tail–infused mashed potatoes, some of this stuff sounds pretty enticing, with or without the scantily-clad women.
But be sure to wash your hands before you dig in.
Frequented by lobbyists and James Gandolfini (presumably doing research for a Sopranos movie), Camelot's menu highlights include charbroiled filet mignon medallions and a 'Greek plate featuring oregano-seasoned steak tips, pickled peppers, feta, olives, and pita triangles.'
Want an early start? Have their three egg omelette to fuel up.
Citysearch describes the Cheetah Lounge as a successful integration of 'fine dining and hedonism,' which sounds pretty good.
Highly touted chef Bill Toro has put together a menu that features shrimp cocktail, pan-seared duck, a wide variety of steak, and for brunch, an Atlanta favourite -- chicken and biscuits.
Not to be confused with a soul food restaurant of the same name, Delilah's is a strip club with a restaurant.
Without comparing to Oprah's favourite, we can say the menu here looks pretty good: heavy on the steak, with small plates including the lobster-tail mashed potatoes and a Caesar salad with fried artichoke hearts.
A more laid back affair, with an emphasis on burgers and wings rather than fine dining.
But the new pizza oven is the highlight, providing those who tire of lap dances with carne asada pizza. Hilariously, hot chocolate is also available.
Another venue that could do with a better website, Shotgun Willie's is a highly rated strip club chain.
Besides delicious looking burgers and sandwiches, the best sounding strip club meal goes to this dish: shrimp fernando, 'large fresh shrimp, stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon, then deep fried to a golden brown.'
This strip club even puts the word 'grill' in the name, so you know they're serious about their cuisine.
This cabaret's menu features a couples serving of filet mignon, and sesame salmon or baby-back ribs for the loners.
More premier dining can be found at Bianca's, on the west side of Manhattan.
Chicken franchese and surf and turf look appetizing, while Time Out had good things to say about the crab cakes and prime-rib steak.
This one is a bit of a stretch, but we heard that the tent in the parking lot of Club Lexx has awesome barbecue.
Chicken sandwiches and ribs are just a couple of the options, put together by the husband and wife team to feed dancers and customers alike.
And finally, something for the ladies.
Though the plastic fork presentation leaves something to be desired, this all-male strip show doles out high-protein, low-carb meals that even the dancers come back for, such as the grilled chicken with roasted peppers.
