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 or 24-ounce porterhouse, plus macaroni and five cheeses or sherried skillet mushrooms. Seasonal items abound, such as a summer “clam bake” (Eastern Shore littlenecks, sweet corn, new potatoes, Surry sausage and shrimp steamed with white wine and thyme), many featuring products from local farms. 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.
