Yeah, yeah, we like salads and sushi as much as the next person. But sometimes don't you just want to blow your wad of calorie points on a thick, glorious piece o' meat? That's when it's time to amass your sheckles and head to BONE'S
. The innards of this 25-year-old joint, wood-paneled and lined with photographs of '70s celebrities, is a shrine to its boys' club days of yore. Skip the seafood and go straight for the cow chow. New York strip is king of the show -- appropriately aged, buttered and magnificent. Filet mignon gets close runner-up.
