Bavette's Bar & Boeuf Restaurant Review

: Exuding sultry, jazz-era charm, Brendan Sodikoff’s sexy steakhouse is more than the sum of its parts. It’s also a departure for the restaurateur (also of Gilt Bar, Maude’s Liquor Bar, Au Cheval, et al). From its leather booths to its zinc-topped bar, it’s an equation that works. And while the 24-ounce dry-aged rib-eye is a thing of great worth, it’s the other options that linger in your mind for days. The bone-in filet is an investment at $76, but it cuts like butter. The foie gras with blackberry-raspberry jam will bring you to your knees. And the Chicago-born shrimp de jonghe? Wow. Still, it’s the short rib stroganoff with noodles and mushrooms that we’ll allow to warm us up any day. Beautiful shellfish platters and fresh-shucked oysters are options, too. Finish with a rich gold-brick sundae, made with local Black Dog Gelato. Bourbon is big business here, though craft beers, creative cocktails and a thoughtful wine list add to the appeal.
