Steakhouse classics like a dry-aged porterhouse big enough for three, with luxe add-ons (truffle or foie gras butter, king crab). For pescatarians, there’s a raw bar of oysters, shrimp cocktail, lobster and ceviche. About a quarter of the menu, including a tater tot poutine topped with short rib, is specific to this location. “I’m good friends with Afrim Pristine [Cheese Boutique] so I couldn’t get away with not using Canadian cheese,” says chef Tommy McHugh. The beef, however, is from the U.S. of A.
The cocktail list seems geared towards Sex and the City fans who’ve moved on from cosmos. The Strawberry Cobbler combines Belvedere and muddled strawberry in a martini glass rimmed with graham cracker dust; and the Carrotedaway, a carrot juice–based cocktail is spiked with Woodford Reserve bourbon, Amaro Montenegro, ginger and lemon juice.
The 269-seat space is divided into four areas: a lounge, a dining room and two private rooms. The lounge is defined by its sprawling bar, behind which is a wall decked with 54 plaster bullhorns.
