The dining room in this Downtown Crossing spot is big enough to host an entire steamship’s worth of robber barons and oil tycoons - and it looks the part. The opulent rooms are cool enough that you’d be happy just to sit with a scotch, but you should also try the small plates (we like the honey walnut shrimp). Save this place for when you want a fancy but fun night out.
