My husband and I tried the new steakhouse last night. I've never been to either of the restaurants that occupied the space before and found it cave like and had a bit of a musty smell when we first walked in. But it was nicely decorated in steakhouse fashion - wine all around and lots of dark wood. There is a nice bar in the front and restaurant seating to the rear. The place was already getting crowded at 6 PM. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable; service was well timed and very attentive. The steaks, as is typical with steakhouses, came with nothing. Your sides were extra, but a sauce of your choice was included. We started with a shared appetizer of sizzling bacon - it had a specific name but I can't remember it - one thick piece, nicely caramelized and it was delicious. My husband also had the big eye tuna tartare with avocado and it was also excellent. The bacon was $4.95 and the tuna $15.95. We shared the porterhouse for two - it seemed most were doing that. They also had other mains but we were there for steak. It was huge and it was a great steak to rival any porterhouse I've had. It was priced at $39.95/person. Now, having said that, the porterhouse up at Chophouse in Mahopac is also very good and $60 -but this place has all the other steak house stuff - like good wine! My husband had a side if sautéed asparagus and I got a baked potato - I'll be eating that thing for days!! Sides were $7.95. I will say the hash browns looked amazing but they were cooked with butter and my husband is allergic. They had a very nice selection of wines by the glass and well priced for the area - considering North has wines on their by the glass list at $35/glass, these were 10/11 and a nice pour. We did not have dessert - who could... the bill came to $212 with tip for the two of us with two glasses of wine each. We are very happy to have a good steak place so close to home!! It's not an everyday place at the price, but once in a while it is worth the splurge.
