THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Post House Restaurant Review

: A bastion of genteel power dining, this Upper East Side restaurant in The Lowell New York is more elegant than your typical steakhouse. In fact, the gilt-framed paintings interspersed with the chalkboard menus, the leather banquettes and armchairs and the long, polished bar lend the dining room the look and ambience of a private gentlemen's club. The offerings include all the American classics: crab cakes, Caesar salads, enormous and juicy rib-eye steaks and mammoth Maine lobsters. As a starter, the shellfish bouquet, comprised of a Top Neck clam, a Blue Point oyster, jumbo Gulf shrimp, half-chilled baby lobster, and a nice bit of Maryland lump crab meat, is always a good bet. Daily specials might include Cajun filet mignon with baked black beans; pan-seared sea scallops with horseradish mashed potatoes; or beef Wellington with Madeira sauce. The glass wine cases hold some of The Post House's extensive collection of boutique California and rare French wines, showcasing manager Alan Stillman's dedication to a serious wine program.
