Popular with celebrities and politicians, this atmospheric National Historic Landmark is the city's premier steakhouse, and has been for over 100 years. The restaurant's original tiger-oak back bar is still in operation, and the decor is straight out of 1940s Chicago, with mahogany paneling and a tin ceiling; the ultraprofessional waiters even wear tuxedos. Start with the shrimp cocktail, and then wash down your juicy prime rib or filet mignon with a selection from the award-winning 20,000-bottle wine cellar. Note: The congenial atmosphere is really too boisterous for a romantic meal.
