2. Porter House New York

Porterhouse NY-NYC-Untapped Cities-jinwoo chong-03

Porter House New York has an updated, clubby Mad-Men feel—huge, fabulous steaks cooked to perfection, just as Roger Sterling would expect. It seems churlish not to order martinis, and many people do. The crowd is not as hard-drinking as in the old Madison Avenue days, but this is a place to enjoy excellent wine and cocktails, while staring out at Central Park in all its glory. Almost every table has a skyline view, says Chef Michael Lomonaco. He says his intent is to host a classic New York restaurant that takes care of its guests, and that is still here in twenty years.

Porter House New York, 10 Columbus Circle, 4th floor, 212-823-9500; 11:30 AM-10:00 PM Sun-Wed; 11:30 AM-11:00 PM Thurs-Sat
