Fodor's Review

Bibliophiles may find themselves fully enraptured while dining in this historic library whose hand-carved ceiling was constructed by the Pullman Car woodworkers in 1889. The paneling is Spanish mahogany, and the original lighting fixtures are by Shreve, Crump & Low of Boston. Although the kitchen offers light dishes, such as jumbo crab cakes and crispy fried shrimp served with a sweet chili sauce, the mainstays are thick-cut, juicy steaks and chops. (The crushed-peppercorn steak is meat heaven.) Choose from six different rich, creamy sauces, including hollandaise and Gorgonzola, plus an array of fresh vegetables. The English-style pub serves nearly 100 martinis made from more than 250 brands of international vodkas. Sunday brunch is popular here.
