Before the competition got fierce, Prohibition-era gangsters settled their disputes with Nerf-gun shootouts and steak-eating contests. Time travel back to days of romantically reckless meat munching with today's Groupon to The Majestic Restaurant in the historic Fitzpatrick's Saloon building. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of dinner and drinks.
- For $7, you get $15 worth of breakfast, brunch, and lunch.
The Majestic's food and atmosphere whisks diners back to Prohibition-era speakeasies with live jazz every night and platters anointed with hearty steakhouse fare. The dinner menu centers heavily on a regal array of hefty, dry-aged steaks, such as a 16-ounce T-bone ($39), as well other carnivorous fare, including a trio of grilled lamb chops ($32). Greet the crack of dawn with an appropriately labeled nametag and breakfast items such as the quiche lorraine ($8.50). Midday noshers can enjoy the lunch menu, complete with a salmon BLT ($10). Whatever the meal, The Majestic's extensive wine list and signature cocktails from acclaimed bartender Shawn Moriarty lubricate larynxes with a selection featuring more than 80 varietals, great for topping off a night of savory slabs, flirtatious frippery, and sensual knife games.
Stepping into The Majestic transports diners back into the jazz era without the worries of a matter/antimatter-powered wormhole generator. The dining area is nestled between the original pressed-tin ceiling and the blue-and-white-tiled floors and lined with a long, mirrored bar of shiny wood. The Majestic's days as a speakeasy can still be heard emanating from the circa 1910 piano, where jazz musicians play every evening and during the Sunday jazz brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Majestic Restaurant
In the long, narrow dining room of the historic Majestic Restaurant, one wouldn't have a hard time imagining the spirited saloon that once resided there. Behind the restored 19th-century bar and under a pressed-tin ceiling, barkeeps shake, stir, and pour classic craft cocktails alongside more than 100 types of whiskey. Downstairs, a speakeasy-style jazz club features live performances nearly every night of the week, which are best enjoyed while wearing Prohibition-era garb such as top hats filled with beer. Both the main dining room and downstairs club serve a full dinner menu of tender steaks, cold-water lobster tails, and classically prepared Scottish salmon.
