For the classic New York restaurant experience, head to A. J. Maxwell's in Rockefeller Center. Veteran executive chef brings a fresh interpretation to the traditional steakhouse menu that pleases steak aficionado, seafood lover and restaurant maven alike. Expect a warm welcome, world-class service, a winning wine list, and an inviting, clubby atmosphere. Ideal for pre-theater suppers, business lunches, celebratory dinners, or a quick bit at the bar. Best bets: what Bob Lape of WCBS 880 calls "the best rib eye in New York," the John D. salad, to-die-for escargot, creative side dishes. Also named as one of America's Top 10 steakhouses of 2007 by critic Tom Horan-the only steakhouse in New York to receive this honor. While you're there, be sure to check out the mosaic mural uncovered during renovation. A. J. Maxwell's - A New Restaurant That Feels Like an Old Favorite.
