Manny’s Steakhouse is the sort of white-tablecloth place where Fortune 500 executives meet to close big deals and couples celebrate their twentieth wedding anniversary. Servers glide through the dining room, wheeling a cart displaying raw steaks for you to choose from. If money’s no object, get the $117 50-ounce bludgeon of beef (this is the literal name of the cut) to share. The $61 filet-cut baseball steak is another good option if want the same dry-aged flavor but simply must have a plate of beef all to yourself.
Although beef is the main event, there’s also a great selection of chops and seafood like shrimp, crab, and lobster, plus heaping portions of sides. Try the crispy french fried onions and the mashed potatoes loaded with butter, sour cream, cheese, chives, and generous chunks of bacon. Go for the brownie, which is so huge you’ll need to carve it up with a steak knife, and comes piled high with ice cream and a thick drizzle of chocolate sauce and caramel.
