(Laughing Squid)   New York steakhouse borrows wax figures from Madame Tussauds, so you can have Audrey Hepburn take a seat at your socially distanced table. She's way over-dressed for a steakhouse, of course   (laughingsquid.com) divider line

I would probably ask to sit with Lassie. She always wants steak.

I'd have breakfast with Audrey Hepurn.
Then I'd tell stupid jokes to Jimmy Fallon and enjoy his annoyingly gratuitous guffaw.

A charming little girl. Lovely old world manners. Appetite of a bird.

Is the wax figure of Jon Hamm anatomically correct? Asking for a friend *ahem.

That's Peter Luger. Breakfast at Tiffany's would be cheaper.

Jeffrey Dahmer.  Rare steak.

I'm surprised Tiffany and Co never commissioned a bronze Holly Golightly eating pastry statue looking into their front display window. Perhaps the licensing rights would be too much of a mess?

Overpriced improperly cooked steak served with an attitude for cash only. I'd go to Peter Luger just to watch and judge.

If your steak was cooked "improperly", you didn't order it properly. Also, show me another place in New York where I can get an aged ribeye for two, creamed spinach, and a couple of scotches for under $250.

All you buddy. They're doing something right to be open for that long, but what they do just doesn't appeal to me. Not a huge fan of the butter basting method, plus if I'm dropping that much coin for a dinner I don't want a shiatsu but some basic professionalism would be nice.

/two fiddy. Yikes.

Is Gallaghers any good? Their menu looks reasonably priced and they cook over a hickory fire. If that's your thing you might like the Weber Grill in Chicago if you get out that way. Depending on the scotch you could easily get by under two fiddy.

I qualify my opinion with: I don't order beef at restaurants anymore unless it's prime rib or steak tartare (or someone else is paying.) I spent many years perfecting what works best for me, just as I imagine you do your tastes better than any restaurant can. I have yet to find a restaurant that serves a 24 hr Worcestershire and Montreal marinated chuck roast grilled over oak to 122°. YM(of course)WV.

This.  I have said for years that I don't order at restaurants what I can cook better at home, and steaks easily fit that bill.  Then one day I did try a heavily-recommended steak at a restaurant, and it was better than mine.  So I simply improved my at-home method.

The original book is a lot darker than the film. Not sure it fits the Tiffany and Co image. Dark, but possibly one of the most perfect pieces of American prose.

Nah, they don't want people as poor as Holly getting any ideas.

Keen's was decent in the 80s, but the quality fell off. If you can get out there, one of the best steak and chop places in New York isTeller's on Long Island. It was formerly a bank. They have beautifully aged meat and a fantastic wine and whisky cellar in the old vault.
