Smith & Wollensky
A longtime standby for old-school chophouse vibes, since opening in 1977, Smith & Wollensky has gained a celebrated reputation for their dry-aged steaks, classic cocktails, and lengthy wine list. This Midtown East institution also lays claim to a swanky menu of raw bar offerings, namely, the Wollensky’s Grand Bouquet. The opulent order includes a double-tier tower supplying guests with a generous amount of shrimp, lobster, and crab meat to complement an extra dirty martini and appetizers like the Traditional Caesar or Brooklyn Burrata. If your party is a bit smaller, opt for the Smith’s Bouquet, which serves two.
