Insignia is the newest fine dining restaurant from Anthony Scotto - proprietor of Blackstone & Rare650 Steakhouses. Like its predecessors, Insignia's inspired menu will feature the finest prime dry-aged steaks and the freshest Sushi & Seafood, including Mediterranean whole fish, served up in a chic, elegant atmosphere that is also a feast for the eyes. Picture a historic North shore mansion with cedar shakes, quarried stone and a beautiful turret combined with the energy and vibe of a trendy Manhattan restaurant. "That's Insignia" stated Mr. Scotto, "It's refreshingly unique."

"We had the porterhouse for two, and had some very specific wines in mind for each course. We were impressed with the staff's familiarity with their wine list, and what we considered an exceptional and thoughtful selection. The food came out very quickly, the salads were ostentatious but well conceived, the sides were a bit less successful. The black truffle mac and cheese seemed to be flavored more with truffle oil than actual black truffles, a pet peeve of many, and the grilled artichokes were marinated, not fresh, which was a disappointment. We ate several pieces of sashimi and as I mentioned before, the porterhouse, and both stood up to the steak and sashimi of any premier name in the industry - truly exceptional on both fronts."
