This warm and welcoming steakhouse is the opposite of stuffy: It’s a breath of fresh air in a town that’s full of leather and mahogany. Dark and romantic, the menu is fun and tongue-in-cheek (a slightly-dated baked goat cheese appetizer claims that it’s “circa 1992),” and there are a whole host of non-traditional steakhouse menu items, like fried chicken, meatloaf, and stellar garlic shrimp. But don’t be fooled: The steak here is out of this world. Order the prime dry-aged 22-ounce bone-in ribeye, and prepare to be wowed.
