    the last time I gave my honest opinion about sammy's greasy, gristly, tough tough steaks, it was removed from board because someone was offended. funny, usually lots of vodka puts me in such an agreeable mood - Liz

      It's all about the vodka bottles wrapped in ice and the lounge singer doing his Louis Armstrong impression in the corner.

          The place is vile and disgusting , seriously.

          I would never darken the doorway here again.

            I love Sammy's! Just not for the food...

              You will not read a lot of good chowhoundish things about Sammy's on this board. Bad food (except chopped liver) and overpriced.

                    I was going to say the same thing.

                    It's terrible, and insanely expensive.

                      "insanely expensive" is nearly an understatement. How does $300 a head sound? That's what the tab came to last time I was there. There was a lot of Vodka consumed but, c'mon!

                        Yep. Last time I was there, Lespinasse was still open, and I calculated that - if you included sides - Sammy's most expensive entree prices overlapped Lespinasse's cheapest. And for those with short memories, Lespinasse was Gray Kunz's four star palace at the St Regis.

                        The comedian, I presume, writes the menu.

                        What? The comedian wasn't enough for you?
