St. Anselm Restaurant Review

: St. Anselm is like a steakhouse for hipsters; a veritable grilled meat mecca for the skinny jeans set. A youngish crowd fills the pews, sipping craft beer and wine from long list of nicely chosen bottles (that have a refreshingly low mark-up). Of course, you can’t just breeze in; with the exception of weekend brunch, there’s a perpetual wait for entry. But when you do land a seat at the table, start off with the ultra-creamy burrata paired with a tangy tomato fresh off the grill or the whole grilled sardines. The affordable hanger steak (here called a “Butchers Steak”) is way better than it should be given the price, while the “Axe Handle” rib-eye for two, thick and juicy, would give nearby Peter Luger a serious run for its money. There isn’t much in the way of dessert. Instead, order another glass of wine and count your blessings you got into this place.
