I am a huge P.L. fan and eat there regularly so I say go there. If you can't get a time good for you my second choice would be Bryant and Cooper. I have had a few excellent meals at Bryant and Cooper and it would be a fine alternative.
Brooks & Porter. If you are going on the weekend , the noise factor would be my only concern. If you choose to go, request a table upstairs. Very enjoyable. IMHO the ambiance and steak blow the old standbys away.
