Butcher & Singer Restaurant Review

: Butcher & Singer, from restaurant mogul Stephen Starr, exudes a sexy 40s supper club vibe. This is a grand spot, with its reconfigured front bar, soaring 28-foot ceilings and crystal chandeliers resurrected from the Fontainebleau in Miami. Sink into a leather-tufted booth with a perfect manhattan and get ready for some first-rate beef, buttery, juicy and salty-seared on the outside. Start with the shellfish platter, a briny top of the catch mix that includes meaty Alaskan king crab legs and tasty orbs of jumbo lump crab meat. Then move on to the juicy prime rib, with a side of stuffed hash browns, addictive layers of potatoes, Vidalia onions, cheese and sour cream. There's nothing new here and that's exactly the point. Butcher & Singer will make you feel like Bogey and Bacall on a date. The notable (and pricey) wine list offers more than 200 bottles of old- and new-world selections. For dessert, pretend you’re on a cruise and order the baked Alaska, a hot and cold treat that never goes out of style.
