This lavish but cheeky steak joint with sisters in New York wears its bordello-chic atmosphere with a healthy touch of irony. The red-flocked wallpaper and dozens of vintage black-and-white boudoir photos may suggest you're inside an early-20th-century house of ill repute, but the menu of artfully presented chops and classic American foods reflects a highly skilled, contemporary kitchen. Appetizers such as warm garlic bread with gorgonzola fondue and lobster bisque are
indulgent starters. A broad variety of steaks including 20-ounce bone-in rib eyes and New York strips—veal rib chops, and Colorado lamb rack—don't disappoint. Feeling cuddly? Try to Porterhouse for two. The 24-layer chocolate cake makes for a fittingly decadent end to your meal.
