River Stone Chophouse Restaurant Review

: With its Arts and Crafts design and dry-aged steaks, River Stone might have been a meeting of the minds between Frank Lloyd Wright and Peter Luger. It’s a restaurant for unwinding after work, recognizing special occasions, or simply celebrating the fact that there are places like this that get service, ambience, food and drink right. The raw bar is enticement enough, but use it as a jumping off point for a meal of bone-in rib-eye, 24-ounce porterhouse or Colorado lamb chops plus macaroni and six cheeses or sweet potato casserole. Seasonal items abound, many featuring products from local farms. But no matter the calendar, one of the most popular items is Surf and Turf for Two boasting two New York strips, mashed potatoes, vegetable and a whole Maine lobster to share (rumored to be a run-up to a marriage proposal). À la carte pricing can get chophouse steep, but there’s a good bar menu for budget-minded luxe-seekers that starts at 3 p.m. weekdays.
