This chain has staked locations where tourists from the middle states are sure to gather—the South Street Seaport, Union Square, Radio City and the Empire State Building. But the Chop House, at the heart of Times Square, is the Heartland empire’s flagship. The beer, once brewed on the premises, is now made at a Brooklyn facility; with five year-round and two seasonal options, the suds are still tried-and-true. You won’t find the same old chicken wings, because they’ve evolved into buffalo-chicken spring rolls. The steaks won’t strike fear into any of the city’s legendary steakhouses, but they are juicy, tender and prepared your way. Be forewarned: For the added quality, you’ll pay as much as $10 more for dinner here than at other locations.
