The Republic Steakhouse
The Republic has everything your classic steakhouse should offer: a swanky, dimly lit, wood-laden space in which you can dig into the finest beef alongside an extensive whiskey selection and library of wines. Consider starting with oysters on-the-half-shell (or chicken-fried -- thanks, Texas) before you indulge in some sea-salt and cracked-pepper finished cuts with house-smoked mashed potatoes and maple-bacon sprouts. You can even opt for a chicken-fried filet mignon. Again, thanks, Texas.
