    An out of towner who has nonetheless eaten at every NY steakhouse multiple times, I say without fear of contradiction two things: the best sirloin (A/K/A NY Strip when not in Manhattan) in town, and the best wine list. Some of the wines, I swear, cost only about 10% more than at a wine shop. Sides and apps non inspiring, in my opinion. And finally, when you order dessert, and what is a visit to a NY steakhouse with a slice of cheesecake and coffee, they change the tablecloth before dessert. enjoy...I am jealous

      Get the sirloin. I ding them for lack of cream spinach. Not my favorite.

        they're all worth trying once as far as I'm concerned!

          It's my absolute favorite in the city. The only thing to order is the strip --- it's fabulous. They have a great wine list too. It can get really crowded, but it's worth the wait!
