Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of classic American cuisine and drinks at Gaslight Grill.
Combining classic American fare with a European dining flair, Gaslight spreads out a menu of elegant eats worthy of the most distinguished king. Preheat your appetite with a jumbo lump crab cake with sweet-corn mousse ($12) or a spinach artichoke dip with toasted pita ($9). Australian lamb chops ($28), pan-seared Chilean sea bass ($28), and certified aged black angus hand-cut steaks and chops ($25–$34) are superbly seasoned and meticulously prepared. Sommeliers will want to sample one of Gaslight’s more than 180 wines; cocktails, local microbrews, and champagnes are available at a granite-topped bar.
Gaslight’s main dining room is regally decorated with black chairs, black booths, and black tables contrasted with a white ceiling and ornate yellow-green patterned carpet. Catch a breeze and put it in a vial to test if it will grow crystals on Gaslight’s outdoor patio. Or, on Wednesday through Sunday nights, stretch your torso supports, lean back in your chair, and relax to the tune of New Orleans–style live jazz in the Back Room under Gaslight Grill’s chimney-crowned roof.
As the doors to Gaslight Grill's back room swing open, the sounds of Dixeland jazz and the aromas of sizzling Angus steaks waltz forward together to greet guests. Lynn Zimmer and the Jazz Band play rollicking tunes from the 30s and 40s on Wednesday–Sunday nights as diners tap their fingers across the surfaces of menus filled with hand-cut steaks, pistachio-crusted salmon, and jumbo prawns drizzled in beurre blanc. More than 200 wines complement meats from land and sea, and a nimble barkeep dishes out mixed drinks and jetpack fuel for the ride home. It might be difficult to say goodbye, however, to a stately dining room lined with plush booths and illuminated by twin chandeliers.
