$40 for $80 Worth of Steakhouse Cuisine and Wine for Dinner

The grill is always stoked at 801 Chophouse, sizzling up a menu of aged USDA-Prime steaks such as 24-ounce bone-in delmonicos ($56) and 12-ounce strip steaks ($40). The fresh sheet, meanwhile, presents an ever-changing selection from the sea, such as the pan-seared Chilean seabass ($30), all expertly paired with glasses from the wine list.

801 Chophouse

801 Chophouse establishes itself as a special-occasion restaurant, where every table might well hold a ring in a hidden box or a couple celebrating an anniversary. There are the white tablecloths popping against dark leather booths, the racks of wine tended by a certified sommelier, and, of course, the chops and steaks, all USDA Prime. On the other hand, it's quite conceivable that someone might gladly eat at 801 Chophouse every week and for any occasion—the menu, drink selection, and Wine Spectator-awarded wine list could accommodate months of exploration, and an ever-changing "fresh sheet" overflows with the jet-fresh seafood selections of the day.

On any given night, the wait staff moves across wooden floors beneath high ceilings and 1920s-inspired decor, trays loaded with nine creative potato preparations, filet mignon, and dry-aged pork chops. Meanwhile, the cattle of a pastoral mural gaze out over the dining room's cherry-wood finishes, waiting patiently to graze on uneaten garnishes.
