Mastro’s City Hall Steakhouse Restaurant Review: Owned by Mike Mastro (of Mastro Restaurant Group), this spot looks a little sleeker and feels a little younger than its starchy corporate counterparts. As is true at the others Mastro's, dim lights and live entertainment create the sort of night-clubby atmosphere that encourages eating, drinking and being merry. But for those who come for the meat (not the meat market), Mastro's does remarkably well in this arena as well, offering Midwestern, corn-fed beef (USDA Prime, of course), wet-aged for 21 to 28 days and cut in the temperature-controlled, in-house butcher shop. The result is invariably a hunk of charred, juicy perfection that sizzles on a 400-degree plate and melts in the mouth. Naturally, there are chicken and seafood dishes as well as a slew of potato and vegetables side dishes. Forget about calories. This happy, hedonistic place is all about living in the moment.
