2007 Best Steakhouse

Grill 23 and Bar

Sure, sometimes a single, tiny scallop garnished with edible flowers is enough to get the job done. For the rest of the time, there’s Grill 23. This traditional haunt of the powerful and the generously compensated plates up jumbo iceberg wedges doused with million-calorie blue cheese dressing; staggeringly large slabs of beef, flawlessly grilled and delivered by white-coated waiters; and a distinguished list of hearty cabernets to wash it all down.
