From the outside, this clubby restaurant seems sedate, but you’ll pass through massive front doors into a flurry of activity akin to that at the check-in counter for a canceled flight. Here, however, patrons are dispatched to tables or to the bar with far greater efficiency than the airlines could ever hope for. The menu is straightforward: ten cuts or preparations of beef, three selections of veal and two seafood entrées. Start with an order of onion rings, lightly breaded crispy wisps that the table will devour in seconds. Thick steaks arrive, still spitting juice, on thick white platters the temperature of hot coals. A server stands at attention, awaiting your nod of approval that the meat is cooked to your specifications; if not, it is removed from the table with lightning speed. Accompanying items are all à la carte, leading some to complain that the tab is a bit high, but don’t be deterred. The old-fashioned lettuce wedge with milky blue cheese dressing and an order of skillet potatoes are the ideal frame for any filet or strip. The wine list will require time for careful study. Cabernets dominate, filling more than five pages, yet there are Merlots, Pinot Noirs and Meritages. There’s a representative list of whites plus some extremely rare vintages at stratospheric prices.
