This secretive steakhouse is hidden in a restored bank vault under the New Yorker Hotel. Hearty dishes like the New York strip and hangar steak come from executive chef Scott Campbell.

This Staten Island Mexican restaurant-slash-adult-playground has it all: Skee-Ball, esquites, video games and guacamole.
