The Forge Restaurant Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: This oak-paneled temple of beef housed in a former 1920s blacksmith shop underwent a $10 million dollar renovation a few years back, returning as a celebrity magnet with updated gilded age décor and Murano glass chandeliers. Chef Christopher Lee was hired to revamp the menu. Steaks stayed but a new purveyor was engaged: Pat LaFrieda of Bergen, N.J., specializing in exact cuts of dry-aged Prime beef. A high powered gas grill was also installed ensuring a perfect crust on the Cadillac of steaks here, the “super” 16-ounce center-cut N.Y. strip loin, served with a choice of sauces from horseradish butter to pickled vegetable chimichurri. The extensive and varied international wine list for which The Forge has been famous over the years remains.

Was here last night. This place is simply amazing. The decor is like nothing I have seen before. They have a mirror inside that is literally the size of one of my walls! And the food....! I'm going to recommend the tuna tar tare to start out or the lobster bisque (like everything there, it is served in a really unique dish) good! I had the rib eye. The spice on this made it taste like no other steak I have ever had. I'd suggest that you come a little early and sit at the bar for a little and use the wine machines to sample from different wines. All in all, this place is a major thumbs up...
