A visitor to Texas shouldn't leave without an excellent cowboy-sized steak, like the kind they serve at Bohanan's. Just a block or so from the Alamo, this is the kind of place where Texas oilmen and cattle ranchers like to come. It's perfect for business dinners, a special date, or a quiet evening alone with a smooth, pale brandy and a good steak. With comfortable seating, white tablecloths, dark club-like wood paneling, a gleaming bar, and fine cuts of prime meats, Bohanan's is sure to please. Take an elevator to the softly lit upstairs dining room and order big, thick cuts of prime beef, which come from Allen Bros. of Chicago. If you want Akaushi beef, that's offered, too, and all the steaks are mesquite grilled. The pork is Kurobuta, and seafood is flown in fresh. Generous side dishes, which are served a la carte, are a bit pricey, so you'll want to share. Lunch is served downstairs in the bar. The restaurant is near the River Walk and cater-cornered  to the Majestic Theatre on Houston Street, making it a popular spot for a pre-theater dinner (reservations are recommended).
