This throwback restaurant caters to the executive set in a see-and-be-seen atmosphere. You'll often see tables of suited powerbrokers closing deals in an environment similar to an old-fashioned supper club. The multi-level dining room is spacious and upscale, a fitting environment for expense accounts (or simply indulging on special occasions). An open charcoal grill is the focal point. Steaks here arrive large, tender and perfectly cooked. The baseball cut of top sirloin comes highly recommended, and the filet mignon is succulent as well. Additionally, caesar salad prepared tableside adds a theatrical touch. Voila, a perfect evening of good food, good drinks and good people.
