I must warn you though, it’s always crowded and pretty loud. I have to say- I definitely prefer the LES outpost and the spot that started it all, Ino! Nevertheless, it’s a good option if you’re in the area.

The menu is pretty identical to BLT Steak but the big difference is in the ambiance. It’s modern with an intimate yet upbeat vibe- a welcomed departure from a traditional steakhouse. Two additional words that come to mind when thinking about last night’s experience- impeccable service!
