Everything you really need to know about this notable steakhouse is foretold within minutes of your arrival, when those complimentary duck-fat fries are placed on your table. They are pretty much perfect and very welcoming. Spend as much time savoring them as the lengthy Bourbon and wine lists, which flaunt a deep knowledge of top producers in Spain, Napa and Burgundy—all available at reasonable prices.
The most notable specialty may be the butter-poached steak, sporting a serious crust and cooked to order. However, the pot pie filled with two pounds of lobster meat in puff pastry ensures that flavors are thoroughly enjoyable. Sides are better than they need to be, so do not miss the black truffle mac and cheese or asparagus with preserved lemon gremolata.
