THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES r.Norman's Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES TO SEVEN THE STEAKHOUSE. Did we need yet another upmarket steakhouse downtown? From the looks of it---thronged with denizens age-30-plus---maybe so. Its cushy booths and ivory leather chairs are consistently filled, celebrating the renaissance of a 1920s building. Now, the space is fitted with a dramatic fireplace, two-story window-walls overlooking 7th & Hennepin and a double-decker wine wall. The utterly predictable menu features the usual steakhouse suspects, from crab cakes with an appealingly light lemon-cayenne rémoulade and oysters Rockefeller to Angus of many varieties. But there’s also rack of lamb and seafood options for the beef-benighted---all presented à la carte. Gobble up tasty side orders of creamed spinach and truffled mac ‘n’ cheese and climax the debacle with bananas Foster, prepared tableside. The wine list pays homage to the tried-and-true, and at these prices we should be savoring selections in Riedel stemware. By-the-glass choices are slim and predictable. Service finds the fine line between scripted and chummy.
