Angus Club Steakhouse Dining Room

In this city of millions, filled with people who are used to living in apartments the size of a shoe box, it is always impressive to find vast amounts of space somewhere. The Angus Club Steakhouse is a grand example of that. Housed in a former dance club, the meat palace, done in neutral tones and filled with well-spaced tables, has two levels as well as private dining rooms, great for quiet family dinners or business meetings. The menu, meanwhile, is of the classic steak house variety, with some inventive additions: baby lamb chops serve as an appetizer as well as a main dish, for example, and a plate of thick, meaty lean slabs of crunchy bacon might sound redundant before a porterhouse, but I recommend it anyway. Speaking of the porterhouse—served for two, three or four—I give it a thumbs up, with the kind of juiciness and sizzle that you want in this traditional steak dish. It's nice to be able to both stretch your legs and dig into a great plate of beef in Manhattan!
