Keens Steakhouse - New York
Long before there were motor-operated vehicles there was Keens, which opened in 1885 in what was known as the Herald Square Theatre District. It's now an area populated by tourists and shoppers going to Macy's, and of course, those carnivores in search of a great steak dinner at Keens.
In the heyday of pipe and cigar smoking, Keens was the stomping ground for the Pipe Club, which boasted a membership roster with the likes of Teddy Roosevelt, Babe Ruth, Will Rogers, Albert Eistein, J.P. Morgan, General Douglas MacArthur and “Buffalo Bill” Cody.
The menu, of course, is classic steakhouse. Highlights include Keens' signature mutton chops, prime filet mignon and a prime Porterhouse for three. And seafood lovers should be thrilled with steamed Maine lobster (which weigh in up to six pounds), Dover sole and pan-seared Arctic char.
