Harry’s is a classic steakhouse, but rather than old wood floors and taxidermied animal heads like at Peter Luger or Keens, it’s been renovated to look more like a futuristic saloon with an implicit dress code of dark jackets and white button-downs. The dark, underground dining room has suede booths, and walls covered in bottles from its very long wine list. Whether you go with the relatively small portion of filet mignon or the tender bone-in ribeye (the best cut here) make sure to get the perfectly buttery, whipped potatoes to share. If you want a more casual experience, get a bar seat in the pub room, and drink a very good classic martini.

The Staten Island Ferry
The Staten Island Ferry is free, and you can use it to get to and from Staten Island. Or you can treat it like a floating bar with an outdoor deck.
Fraunces Tavern in FiDi is one of the oldest bars in America, and it’s still going strong with a big whiskey selection and live music on weekends.
When it comes to FiDi, Augustine is pretty much as good as it gets. Think Balthazar, but for bankers, and with somewhat better food.

Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.

4 Charles Prime Rib
4 Charles Prime Rib is an underground West Village steakhouse that should be approached with reckless intent. This is not a place to eat a salad.
The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.
Crown Shy is an American restaurant in the Financial District that’s one of the few places we’d recommend to absolutely everyone.
