Orchard Street Chop Shop Restaurant Review

: This elegant steakhouse offers a somewhat formal dining room for special occasions or a romantic meal as well as the Top of the Chop located upstairs, which presents the option of a casual, rustic menu and a chance to sample rum from chef Chris Kozlowski’s collection --- there's also a clubby pool parlor in back for after-cigar games. Both spaces propose USDA Prime grade beef aged in-house --- try the one-pound Delmonico, best with house-made Worcestershire or smooth béarnaise, and the tangy tournedos of beef encrusted with blue cheese. Sides show a bit of pizzazz. Choose smoked carrots drenched in pecan butter, blackened asparagus and the creamed spinach touched with hot sauce. Châteaubriand is served tableside, and the menu includes some more exotic fare; elk and pheasant make for nice departures. Top off the meal with chocolate and raspberry mascarpone cannoli.
