Fodor's Review

Tradition's the thing at this townhouse landmark, a former speakeasy that opened in 1929. Chef Sylvain Delpique tries to satisfy everyone with standards like the famous '21' burger and Dover sole with brown butter, as well as more modern dishes, such as sautéed pork belly with butternut squash purée, but the food is almost secondary to the restaurant's storied past. Belongings donated by famous patrons—for example, John McEnroe's tennis racket or Howard Hughes's model plane—hang from the ceiling. Men:jacketsare required, but you can leave your ties at home.
