Grumpy waiters? Check. Sawdust on the floor? But of course! Beef so tender you can use a butter knife on it? Well, that’s why people are still coming to this iconic steakhouse set in a barren stretch of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It’s still hard to beat a meal here, and that goes for everything from the beef to the lamb chops to the legendary creamed spinach. Two important notes: Credit cards aren’t accepted, so be sure to bring wads of cash. And you’ll need to reserve well in advance to get a table.
