Fairly decent foie gras with an excellent pepper steak. I might add that this place is so traditional, it's almost amusing in a humorous way. more

  • The Scene
    When diners see the gleamingly restored turn-of-the-last-century dining room abuzz with foodies, celebs, politicos and high rollers, they understand the Brahmins' loyalty to this American dining landmark. They'll also be reminded of legends of feasts past (Orson Welles slurping oysters by the dozens; Caruso sautéing his own sweetbreads). Co-owner and chef Lydia Shire has been a tonic to Locke-Ober, in the dining room and kitchen.

    The Food
    Shire packs explosive taste into dishes as simple as Cape scallops and bacon on skewers and beef Stroganoff with hand-cut egg noodles. The kitchen can be slow, but execution is perfect. The crisped duck with elderberry and ginger, for example, arrives unctuously luscious on top, seared to a crunch on the bottom. Indian pudding is a lesson on how this relic of Colonial cooking should be made.
