Poltergeist taught you that if you’re going to venture into the brilliant whiteness of an alternate dimension, you must have a tether to lead you back to reality. Over-the-top restaurants are no different, but only one will keep you connected to the real world with meat: STK.
Brother to the same-named Manhattan spot, STK eschews typical steakhouse woods and leathers in favor of a DJ booth, a skyscraper of booze, freak uterus flowers in glass cylinders, and a haunting wall of bleached steer horns (a bristling sub-in for the traditional “Pics of Owner w/ Those Sopranos Guys”). But the cow’s legit, from the 8oz loin strip, to the 24oz porterhouse, to the 26oz bone-in NY, all available with toppings like crab, foie gras, and black truffles, the delicious Bauhaus fans of the fungus world. STK also plates up heroic non-bovines, like Maine lobster, roasted lamb porterhouse, and Hudson Valley duck breast.
