Maxwell’s is an opulent and gilded steakhouse that instantly feels like a well-bred, New York classic. Zig-zag marble floors, potted palms, and leather banquettes fashion the kind of grand, art deco setting that would make Greta Garbo feel right at home. The cocktail bar is as dedicated as the kitchen, mixing martinis that are almost as destination-worthy as the 32-ounce Porterhouse steaks. Like any self-respecting chophouse, sides like buttery whipped potatoes, nicely balanced wedge salads, and on-point desserts are traditional and delicious. However, those thick cuts of dry-aged, top-tier steaks are a perfectly rare treat. Meats are cooked with tremendous precision and paired with the likes of a glossy sauce Diane, dotted with soft peppercorns.
