Fodor's Review

Special-occasion diners, conventioneers on expense accounts, and meat-loving locals haunt this surprisingly intimate dining room for great beef expertly prepared. The wood-and-brick interior has leather accents, Western landscapes, and vintage Old West photos, and servers wear white shirts and stylish denim aprons, all creating a relaxed urban-cowboy ambience. Here, prime 35-day dry-aged beef is king. Savor choice cuts with sides like roasted bone marrow as well as mac and cheese sprinkled with barbecue bacon dust . Non–steak options include house-made pappardelle with pork shoulder and smoked cheddar as well as the grilled local carrots with black garlic. High-back booths are comfy, as is the chef's counter and the bar, where mixologists shake up strong bourbon cocktails.
