"Top Chef" winner Nicholas Elmi's highly anticipated butchery fits right in with Old City's historical vibe. The cozy two-level space features two bars (one for drinks and the other for oysters) with exposed brick walls, a tin ceiling and antique furnishings. But the mood is anything but dusty. Diners of all generations dig into hearty dishes like lamb crepinette and steak au poivre in stick-to-your-ribs portions, while a feel-good soundtrack veers from Ella Fitzgerald to Stevie Wonder and Arcade Fire. Cocktail connoisseurs find classics and contemporary choices, while oenophiles look to a Euro-heavy list. D (daily).
