I visited the location cross town on the east side. It was a large room with high ceilings and a faux fireplace. The fire place was a bit out of place as it was a warm evening, although it seems to be located in a back private table. The service was decent and ambiance matched. I had a soup and a salad for appetizer. The main course, I had a filet mignon and mash potatoes and spinach. The filet was huge, which may have contributed to it being not consistently cooked through. My guest had the salmon and she also received a very large portion. Overall, the meat was good and the porterhouse platters that came out looked delicious.
