Outside, Ottomanelli’s looks like an old-time chop house: striped awning, high-curtained windows, and the patriarch’s name emblazoned on its sign in golden cursive letters. But inside, there’s a hodgepodge of knickknacks and wall hangings, recalling a suburban craft fair. You don’t come for ambiance; the draw is a hulking New York strip and Mr. O. delivers. At $19.95, this char-grilled, hand-cut slab is an old-world bargain. Since the early twentieth century, the Ottomanellis have been known as top-notch butchers, supplying kitchens around the city with dry-aged beef and succulent cuts of pork. In 2004, the family got in on the restaurant business, opening this cramped one-room spot on a subdued Upper East Side corner. Also on offer: a relatively paltry hanger steak, heaping salads, satisfying pastas, and towering burgers like the Carolina, an impressive stack of crumbly beef topped with sweet BBQ sauce and creamy coleslaw. Weekend brunch finds the place overrun with a combination of twentysomethings nursing hangovers and clusters of older neighbors in for a respectable meal.
