Keens Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: The legendary Keens---Teddy Roosevelt dined there regularly as NY Police Commissioner before his presidency---does a steady lunch business (reservations are a must), as does the tap room. Opened in 1885 as a clubby garment-center haunt, it is worth a visit not just for the signature fist-sized mutton chop but also to see the 90,000 pieces of memorabilia including the play bill held by Abraham Lincoln when he was assassinated. Amid Alexander Pope paintings, Mason and Hamlin grand piano, the largest pipe collection in the world, theater posters and programs, diners dig into classic dishes. There are baked oysters Rockefeller, steamed whole Maine lobster, triple lamb chops and beef galore (aged prime New York sirloin, aged prime T-bone, aged prime porterhouse and chateaubriand). For dessert, try the warm deep-dish apple pie. There are more than 150 reasonably priced bottles on the wine list and a large collection of single-malt Scotches.
