Known for its signature mutton chops, Keens is a must-visit dining destination for any New York foodie. In fact, after over 125 years in operation, this legendary New York eatery received the 2013 James Beard Foundation American Classic Award. It's a traditional place with a straightforward meat-focused menu, and ordering a traditional cocktail or two is part of the Keens experience. Although Keens serves complimentary crudite, thick cut smoked bacon is a popular appetizer. All steaks are prime and dry-aged.
The ambiance is decidedly classy and historic with dark wood-paneled walls and portraits of prominent patrons and American figures. The ceiling is lined with the largest collection of churchwarden smoking pipes in the world. Keen's smoking club members included Teddy Roosevelt and Albert Einstein among others.
As you might imagine, reservations are necessary at this classic Manhattan steakhouse. Visit the Keens Steakhouse's website to learn more!
