Restaurateur Kevin Clib transformed Bridget's from the refurbished remains of a thrift store and TV repair shop into a modern steakhouse with an expansive selection of wines, cocktails, and martinis. The menu is populated with handsomely prepared entrees from land, sea, and outer space ($23–$39), such as the 10 oz. center-cut filet mignon, which is tarred with a sake-laced shiitake reduction before being feathered with green onions and sesame seeds ($35). Duos can share a chatter-inspiring specialty butcher block, such as the 24 oz. double-cut prime pork chop with caramelized apple and cranberry stuffing ($62). Behind Bridget's bar, masters of mixery craft cocktails ($7–$10) and martinis ($9–$12) with specialty spirits, such as St. Germain Elderflower Liquor, and also serve plenty of bottled beer ($4–$13) and white and red wines ($7–$14).
Chef John Talbot delivers mouthwatering fare from the land and the sea to rest on Creed's elegant white tablecloths. Yellowfin tuna drizzled with ponzu sauce ($29) and chimichurri-topped New Zealand king salmon ($28) headline a list of fresh charcoal-grilled fish. Manager and sommelier Josef Plattner is often on hand to offer suggestions for which wine to pair with a New York strip steak ($38) or to mingle with a mustard-herb-crusted rack of lamb ($36). Though the menu favors meat, there are also a number of tasty vegetarian options, including the house-made vegetarian ravioli, stuffed with crimini mushrooms and ricotta cheese, served with fried spinach and a gazpacho coulis ($18). With its soft cream-hued walls and tasteful décor, Creed's is an ideal location for romantic get-togethers or business meetings with bands of ravenous highwaymen.
