Executive Chef Limon, who honed his culinary skills at Peter Luger's, has crafted a dinner menu that is sure to please.

We stopped by early on a Sunday evening for dinner. Start your dinner with their Tuna Tartare, a savory dish with avocado, red bell peppers, shallots and vinaigrette. You don't want to miss the Maryland Crab Cake appetizer, full of fresh, succulent crabmeat with lemon dijon and aioli. For a main, steaks are prepared and presented to perfection.
