This is an upscale steakhouse just a block from Grand Central, and it’s the sort of spot where you can eat some quality red meat with a client or a few members of your extended family. It has high ceilings, a casual bar area up front, and servers who all wear bow ties. The food is pretty straightforward, and if you’re looking for a wedge salad followed by a thick, perfectly cooked slab of filet mignon, you’ll be happy here. On the way out, stop in the entryway and stare at photos of celebrities who have eaten here before you (Warren Sapp and Fountains of Wayne, for example).
