Everywhere You Need to Eat in NYC Right Now

The gist: After a 13-month delay due to COVID-19, Gage & Tollner in Downtown Brooklyn made its highly anticipated debut this April. The legendary oyster and chop house’s origins date back to 1879, and its revival is brought to you by veteran restaurateurs Sohui Kim and Ben Schneider (the wife-and-husband duo behind The Good Fork and Insa), and St. John Frizell (Fort Defiance). Inside a space that stuns with its Gilded Age glory, use an evening here as a reason to get dressed up for a night out and prepare for some prime people-watching of your fellow diners within the intimate dining room—all the while enjoying a menu of seafood platters, steaks, and much more.
The food: Classic steakhouse fare with modern touches and an old-school opulence (and a stellar martini menu) to match. Think raw oysters, chilled Maine lobster, and towering seafood platters as starters, followed by oysters Rockefeller, crab cakes, chicken liver pate, pillowy house rolls, and a wedge salad. Mains include seafood like roasted skate and hearty options such as pork pot pie, fried chicken, and shrimp scampi. Steaks and chop include t-bone sirloin, bone-in ribeye, NY strip, a braised pork shank, or roasted honeynut squash for plant-forward eaters. Add on sides like creamed spinach, cornmeal fritters, and the butter roasted hash brown before finishing it off with desserts like coconut cake; malted milk and dark chocolate torte; or the baked alaska from pastry chef Caroline Schiff.
The cost: Raw bar and appetizers are $8-$85 (and $255 for the seafood royale), sides are $7-16, entrees are $27-42, steaks are $32-MP, and desserts are $6-17. A dedicated martini selection comes in at $18 each; and stirred cocktails, smashes, sours, cobblers, and long drinks are $16. Beer is $5-8, and wines by the glass are $13-30.
