Its glitzy and glamorous history makes this one of those restaurants about which everyone has an opinion-regardless of whether they've been here or not. The celebrity cavalcade may have now moved on, but that appealing sense of speakeasy secrecy remains, with its low ceiling and even lower lighting adding to the sense of intimacy and intrigue. Chef/co-owner Angie Mar has produced a classic chophouse menu, where meat is king. There are plenty of dishes for sharing, whether that's the dry-aged rack of lamb or the applewood-smoked rabbit, but even standard dishes designed for one are on the hefty size. Flavors are big and bold but the richness of the meat is balanced by a judicious use of herbs and fruits. That said, make sure you come hungry.
