Should Manhattan's relentless frenzy for change ever wear you down, consider a restorative visit to this steadfast institution for urban carnivores. An iconic chophouse, Keens refuses to coast on its century-plus pedigree, proudly preserving its red-blooded menu along with its clubby Victorian mien. A warren of vintage-1885 rooms—from a splendid antique bar to chandeliered upstairs havens—harbor romantic tête-à-tête, single malt-fueled expense-account blowouts, and post-shopping or pretheater dinners. Many regulars eschew appetizers and desserts, focusing instead on impeccably cut, lovingly cooked, gargantuan slabs of meat. Keens' signature dish is the mutton chop, a colossal roasted hunk of flavorful mature lamb (otherwise known as sheep). Beef proves equally alluring. A juicy, charred T-bone requires only a dash of salt, a side of fries, and a California Cabernet from the concise wine list.
