Harry’s is a classic steakhouse, but rather than old wood floors and taxidermied animal heads like at Peter Luger or Keens, it’s been renovated to look more like a futuristic saloon with an implicit dress code of dark jackets and white button-downs. The dark, underground dining room has suede booths, and walls covered in bottles from its very long wine list. Whether you go with the relatively small portion of filet mignon or the tender bone-in ribeye (the best cut here) make sure to get the perfectly buttery, whipped potatoes to share. If you want a more casual experience, get a bar seat in the pub room, and drink a very good classic martini.
