Stockyard Food & Spirit
Having shuttered in July after 42 years in biz, Brighton's popular Stockyard steakhouse's been overhauled and reopened by the dudes from The 21st Amendment. Classics like the 22oz char-grilled bone-in ribeye and demi-glaced veal porterhouse chop are now joined by a raw bar and entrees that include an oven-baked Maine lobster pie w/ corn soufflé and a full rack of hickory-smoked baby back ribs w/ maple slaw.
This Brighton landmark has fed the carnivorous masses for close to half a century now—and yet the oversized signage out front still provokes a giddy reaction. Is it the throwback charms of the space, fireplace, dark-wood paneling, antique signage, and all? Or is it the fact that the four main steak cuts can be topped—sorry, “crowned”—with the likes of lobster Oscar or jumbo baked shrimp? All we know is that when we pull up to the nondescript brick exterior, we have to stop ourselves from trotting in to join all the old-timers in yet another celebratory meat meal.
