Accepted/Not Necessary


This steakhouse may not have the far-reaching, outer-borough appeal of Peter Luger, but it has something Luger’s will never have: a view. From Ruddy & Dean’s roof deck, weather permitting, you can watch the ferries and freighters floating to and fro across the Kill Van Kull and New York Harbor. But if you're inside the mustard- and honey-wood-trimmed dining room, and the only view you get is of R&D's seven kinds of succulent, cast-iron-seared cuts, served on the butcher paper that lines the white-clothed tables, you’re unlikely to complain. The restaurant dedicates an entire page of the menu to its thick; dry-aged; and, in most cases, bone-in treasures, with definitions that advise you on cooking temperatures (“NOT RECOMMENDED” is in caps under “well-done”). Of the sides, smoky, creamed spinach and chunks of sautéed mushrooms with thick slabs of wilted onions are best. The pedestrian wine list makes you wish someone cared as much about what’s in your glass as what’s on your plate, but the long 15-seat bar just steps from the ferry terminal has plenty of other whistle-wetting options.
