Neither an old standard nor a flashy upstart, AJ Maxwell’s isn’t the first name that springs to mind when contemplating steak houses. But the pleasantly clubby restaurant has no trouble attracting diners—expense-accounts execs, third-night daters, and tourists—all looking to impress. Outsized mirrors, towering floral arrangements, and multi-layered pearlescent chandeliers are grounded by dark-wood trimmings. Portions are equally grand in scale, like the signature rib eye, with a comically foot-long bone jutting from its side. Perched atop a bed of crushed ice, oysters on the half shell with mignonette sauce and Tabasco take up most of the table. Grilled meat is clearly the raison d'être, though 8 seafood options are available, such as horseradish-crusted salmon. Because sides are a la carte, if you order just one, make it the caramelized, balsamic-glazed brussels sprouts with bacon.
