Group Friendly: When it comes to hosting a group in style, this spacious rooftop steakhouse is hard to beat. For a start, it's located on the twenty-seventh floor of the Hilton Anatole, so it's almost impossible to not have a good time when you're surrounded by spectacular skyline views. Secondly, it serves some of the best steaks in town, including a phenomenal 32-ounce black Angus tomahawk that's been dry-aged for 28 days. Thirdly, it's perfect for hosting a classy get-together: In addition to the main dining area, SER offers four elegantly appointed private rooms that can accommodate 25 to 150 people. And for those times when your dinner plans for two turn into a party of twelve? No problem, SER typically has the space to welcome your group, even when it's a last-minute outing.

Here, carnivores can pick from a mesquite-grilled lineup that runs from bone-in ribeyes to wagyu filets, all of which can be supported with a variety of embellishments, including brown sugar bacon and South African lobster tails. Don't forget to add sides like caramelized Brussels sprouts or poutine, and be sure to save room for the volcano chocolate cake at the end.
