There’s something comforting about Bavette’s. Maybe it’s the fact that you don’t have to make a reservation or maybe it’s that you can bring your parents or a client here and not have to explain through gritted teeth why there are go-go dancers on top of the table. You can just walk in and, after a usually short wait, be seated and enjoy a great steak. The 42-day-aged ribeye is our favorite, but the double-bone Berkshire pork chop and spiced fried chicken with sweet pea and cipollini gravy are worth sharing with the table as well if you’re with a group. Though, if you have a corporate card available and a convincing enough fake cough, a solo seat at the bar in front of numerous backlit amber-colored bottles is probably one of the best in the house.
