Gotham’s literati shed tears when Elaine Kaufman’s venerated hangout, Elaine's, shut its doors in 2011. But the husband-and-wife team behind Parlor Steakhouse, Michael and Susy Glick, reopened the space, with a name that nods to the bygone establishment’s wordsmith regulars. Under the watchful gaze of lit greats—whose pictures line the front room—dine on American classics: buttermilk-fried chicken, clam chowder with a cherrystone-clam velouté, and smoked baby back ribs. Drinks include more than 150 international vintages, bitters-focused cocktails and a long-running whiskey list that would please any hard-drinking writer.
