Small, unorthodox and independent, this
East Village restaurant is no one's idea of a New York steakhouse, but guess what? It's one of the best around -- lacking only the cliches that are all many of its rivals have left.
My BFF recommended this place to me to take my boyfriend for his birthday. When we got there, it looked like a deli from the outside but the inside was casual yet slightly fancy (a perfect atmosphere after we took a whiskey tasting class).
We didn't know what to get so we asked the waitress for all her favorite dishes- from appetizers to the wine- she did not disappoint!
i LOVED the panko crusted scallops- and my boyfriend and I split a porterhouse for 2 which was one of the best steaks I ever had.
Amazing and so unexpected- I will be recommending this place to everyone that thinks a steakhouse needs to be prissy and stuffy with rich old people to be delicious. This was a GREAT scene and so unexpected! LOVED IT!
