This credible remake of the famed 1927 Manhattan original offers an old-school carnivore experience inside the cleverly decorated New York–New York Casino. This convivial tavern's walls are lined with black-and-white photos of sports stars, actors, and politicos, and the hardwood floors and tray ceilings transport guests directly to Gotham. You can admire the aged steaks in a big cooler visible from the cobblestone promenade near the entrance. The menu's refreshingly
simple: pick your main dish (Colorado lamb chop, center-cut filet mignon, and so on) and then one of the six sauces (béarnaise, brandied peppercorn, shallot and Beaujolais, Stilton blue cheese, wild mushroom, and caramelized onion) to accompany it. Gallagher's is open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, and serves lunch at the bar.
