I tried Chateau Keens which is from California. I have never met such perfect balanced red before. Good combination with sirloin steak. 勿体ぶらずにこちらのお店ではお金をかけて美味しいものを頂くこと、そしてぜひ赤ワインを試すことをお勧めします。食べると必ず価値が分かるはずです。

Great steak. Cooked perfectly. Loved the little surprise appetizers before our meal. Loved our Manhattans as well. Loved the history of this steakhouse from the 1890s. Will return when we return to NYC.

Steak just ok. No complaints but not in my top 10 for NYC. Great service and ambience but nothing else above average to call out.
