Best for: a damn fine steak
It’s no surprise that the hipper younger sibling to Quality Meats knows its way around a hunk of beef, but the rest of the menu is just as enticing. On the steak side, you can’t go wrong with the bavette or hanger steaks, but make sure to order plenty of starters and sides. We’re partial to the grilled Nueske’s bacon with peanut butter, brown-bag curly fries and corn crème brûlée. Cocktails are on the whimsical side: There’s a Cracker Jack–infused old-fashioned, nitro negroni and smoky coconut-infused gimlet.
