THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Hillmont Restaurant Review

: Owner Steven Arroyo (Cobras & Matadors, Cobra Lily) presents this totally unpretentious, no-nonsense steakhouse in a city overflowing with high-end beef palaces. No fancy white linen, Languiole knives or Riedel stemware here---in fact, there aren’t even tablecloths on the long communal tables in this colorfully accented, neo-industrial space. You place your order upon entering, claim your seat and attach your order receipt on an overhead clothesline, then await the delivery of a juicy steak, charred to perfection and enhanced with shallot butter. The beef is nicely aged, but without the excessive overhead, you can find a steak here for what you’d pay for some appetizers at one of the city’s swankier steakhouses.
