MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
This fabled institution has been in business for over 85 years, and there’s nothing slowing it down. Once a speakeasy, 21 Club has wined and dined everyone, from movie stars and music moguls to moneyed locals. Add to that its lantern-holding jockeys, townhouse exterior, leather- and wood-paneled dining room and know this is a classic through and through. Gentlemen, don’t forget to don your jackets here. The menu is a perfect accompaniment to the setting featuring "Clayton's jumbo lump crab meat" dabbed with mustard and topped with cucumber; or splendid oxtail ravioli in a rich bone marrow-brown butter sauce. The Dutch apple pie with cheddar crumble and sarsaparilla ice cream offers a delightful contrast in taste and texture and will guarantee your favor.
