Come for the retro swank, return again and again for the truly good food at a great price. I have to preface this review by saying that I really, really know steakhouses, having worked in restaurant development for years. Paul's is not a Morton's or Capitol Grill, but then again, it's about a third of the price. And what do you get for your money: A REALLY NICE steak, and not only that. The vinaigrette is world-class, the soup is nice, the garlic mashed potatoes are better than 99% of the ones I've been served. The bread is good, too. And the drinks are reasonably priced. The whole place is a bargain. Get the 25 oz. porterhouse. It's not as thick as what you'd get at, say, Manny's in Minneapolis or Wolfgang's in NYC, but it's just as tender and delicious, at half the price. And then there's the decor, which is authentically swanky, with tufted leather horseshoe-shaped booths, chairs on casters, a cool lounge, etc. And the service is extremely friendly and solicitous. Don't expect perfection here. Don't think you're going to get Peter Lugar. What you can expect is a supremely satisfying supper club steakhouse experience. The only thing I don't get about this place is why Breaking Bad never had a scene with Saul having a secret meeting here.
