Smoke House

Smoke House

WHY Famous for the garlic bread, the Smoke House is best at old-school dinner-house fare like steak Sinatra, prime rib and shrimp Louie.

Ma ‘n Pa’s Grocery

Ma ‘n Pa’s Grocery

WHY One of the finest small markets around, tiny and personal and packed with good things to eat. WHAT Oh, how we love this wee little market in an old house! There’s the quality produce, of course, and the good meat and fish. And those amazing scones made by the French guy who sells them [...]

Pink’s

Pink’s

WHY Old-school hot dogs of every conceivable topping combo, creatively named for celebrities and movies.

Musso & Frank Grill

Musso & Frank Grill

WHY Martinis, atmosphere, flannel cakes, atmosphere, chicken pot pie and atmosphere.

Whisky & Poetry Salon

Whisky & Poetry Salon

On February 21, 1925, The New Yorker published its first issue. We think that’s the perfect excuse for a Whisky & Poetry Salon.

Lawry’s the Prime Rib

Lawry’s the Prime Rib

WHY Luscious prime rib and a theatrical sense of ‘going out.’ WHAT It’s kinda like the Disneyland of restaurants. Lawry’s has characters (waitresses in uniforms and perky caps and imposing carving men in stiff toques), adventures (salad tossed tableside in a huge spinning bowl, prime rib carved from a silver cart) and tons of Japanese [...]
