Grill 23 & Bar Restaurant Review: Grill 23 & Bar is a twenty-first century, classic American steakhouse: yuppies and board chairmen hold court in the two-story dining room (which can get boisterous at times) over huge slabs of tender, juicy meat. Red wine flows like chatter on the trading floor. While it’s a lot about the show here, we relish the fare, too. Chef Jay Murray is no chop chump: though the steaks are the stars, the whole menu is a class act, from pot roast to Shetland Island salmon. Twin filet mignon, bone-in rib-eye and dry-aged New York strip are all available, while scallops, duck, lobster and chicken with risotto round out the entrées. And don’t miss the famed truffled tater tots. The wine list balances showpieces with genuine finds. Desserts range from pineapple upside-down cake to Boston cream pie with vanilla caramel custard. The upstairs private dining suite is an elegant touch.
