This excellent Northern Italian restaurant, a member of the China Grill scion, is all about meat served Italian style, in large family-style portions. With a rich wood interior, the atmosphere is reminiscent of the dining room of a well-connected family -- ornate and very loud. The house salad is a massive undertaking of classic antipasto, filled with shredded slices of salami and pepperoni, chunks of mozzarella, and delicate vinaigrette. Be sure to order the sautéed spinach with garlic and the onion-mashed potatoes with whichever steak you choose. All steaks are big enough for at least three people to share. The house specialty is a delicious T-bone steak served with pungent garlic purée. The bar is usually buzzing, especially on weekends, the background music is straight out of Studio 54, and so is the flashy crowd. Despite the long waits, after one meal here, you'll likely want to kiss the ring of the true boss of this culinary mob scene -- the chef.
