The Brick House Restaurant Review

: The Brick House offers its guests some very different environments to unwind and entertain: a handsome main bar upstairs and a clubby cigar bar downstairs. Start your meal with an apéritif and a shrimp cocktail, clams or oysters on the half shell. Move on to a steak, such as the New York strip sirloin or petite filet mignon, or perhaps the twin loin lamb chops. Impress a date with the double porterhouse, which is meant to be shared. Not in the mood for meat? Have the frittata or pasta of the day, lobster ravioli, rigatoni à la vodka, shrimp scampi or broiled flounder filet. Late nights invite relaxing with a martini in the piano lounge.
