Sublime. Truly the Sistine Chapel of Steak. Try the bacon and lamb appetizers, and, of course, the creamed spinach. Bring a lot of cash- they only accept that and their own card. Good wine list, as well.

Great New England clam chowder, and the steak was quite good. They do not offer creamed spinach except with one dish, and this is no Peter Luger's... dessert was also forgetable.

A wonderful experience, but not a pretentious one. A master chef at your country house. You almost forget you are in NYC. Everything was sublime, esp the brick chicken and the pasta. One just runs out of superlatives. Worth the crazy six week wait for a booking.

Just a shame. This place had potential. Their business model results in the staff carefully manipulating you and your party around (is that a velvet rope between the bar and restaurant- REALLY??) such that they will not miss the revenue from a side order, etc. Heaven forbid. The only thing you end up feeling is "handled". Go to Blue Smoke. I was embarrassed to bring two of my friends there. The food? That was ok, but they are going to have to make some serious changes...

Suprisingly good steaks here, and better cocktails. The wine list is broad and inspired, as well. The Upper East Side's go - to pickup joint lives on...

Must always be at least "in the running" as best burger in NYC. Also try the chili, and this is one of the last environs of the staid "Bloody Bull Shoot" cocktail in NYC. About as close as you will get to a real local public house in NYC. Just great to be there....

Some of the best steak frites in the city. The place is charming, and they have an impressive wine list. The restaurant is bustling but small, so do make a booking in advance.

This place sucks. Imitation everything, except the baseball caps on the college crowd. But, hey, what might one expect from a pop star that is always trying to be "legit"? Liquid smoke- on everything. Avoid...

A solid neighborhood spot. The music is good, and it is not so loud that you can't enjoy conversation. Try the wings, and the salads are great, too. Would probably make a good first or second date spot.
