Tellers Restaurant Review

: Tellers’ dramatic space --- Art Deco décor, 32-foot ceilings and comfortable leather banquettes --- suits its menu of seafood and classic American steakhouse fare. Try a plate of Tellers’ signature and addicting duck fat fries to share, or opt for the jumbo lump crab cakes with aïoli as a starter. The boneless New York strip and filet mignon are among the restaurant's signature beef choices, but seafood lovers will also find steamed Maine lobsters, branzino with lemon-caper brown butter, and local flounder with a panko crust. Complement your meal with a selection from the extensive wine list. Big band music completes the experience. Save room for dessert, where you’ll find a fudge layer cake, Nutella cheesecake, and lighter options like sorbet. A gluten-free menu is also available. Cigars can be found in the Gold Bar.
