Before we say anything about Hugo’s, we should tell you that it’s in the SugarHouse Casino. And as much as that entire building is an eyesore on the Delaware River, sometimes it’s almost ironically fun to go play a bunch of slots and follow it up with a $60 steak and a Manhattan. That’s exactly what Hugo’s exists for - well, that and the outdoor patio overlooking the river. The steaks here are surprisingly good, and they even have a special “Philly cut,” which is a bone-in filet mignon topped with a provolone sauce and fried shallots. It’s a must order, as is the foot-and-a-half tall chocolate mousse pie.
