Often overlooked, this spot hits every element with consistency—white coats on the waiters, autographed baseballs along the walls and butter-soft steaks. The bone-in filet is as flavorful as any we’ve ever had, and the house specialty, the Wagyu (the American version of Kobe beef) filet, while definitely not cheap, was incredibly tender. Sometimes you just want a nice, juicy steak minus celebrity sightings.
