This venerated spot subscribes to the belief that tradition trumps trend and judging by the crowds that collect here, they seem to be right on the money. In terms of décor, it's a classic steakhouse, with dark cherry wood walls and spacious booths. Piano tunes mixed in with the din of deal-making keeps the vibe celebratory at all times. Start with a glass of wine from their lengthy list or sip on a cocktail. While some opt for standbys like sizzling steaks or barbecue shrimp with Cajun-spiced butter, others can't wait to skip ahead to the finale by way of the warm chocolate soufflé. Whatever you do, don’t miss the garlic bread (for sopping up every drop of the spicy butter sauce) or sides—the creamed spinach and jalapeño-corn soufflé are clear winners.
