Welcome to New Jersey's Legendary Steak House<br /><br />Rod's Steak & Seafood Grille, an area landmark and winner of New Jersey Monthly's 'Best Steakhouse' award, offers lunch and dinner daily as well as the finest Sunday Brunch in New Jersey.<br /><br />The restaurant's new design, rich wood paneling and highly polished brass, lends a classic elegance to the sophisticated atmosphere. For an intimate and unique experience, dinner aboard the private Parlour Cars is sure to be remembered. Formerly the private domain of the rich and famous, these beautifully refurbished, turn of the century railway cars are exquisitely complimented by the haute cuisine of Rod's esteemed Executive Chef.

"Another unbelievable experience at Rod's! This time, the Keller Family Special NY Sirloin and a blackened Delmonico Steak with the Truffled Risotto! Simply fantastic! Do not miss what is arguably one of the best steakhouses in the Tri-State region."

"Rod's is perhaps the best steakhouse in NJ. They are consistently delivering an outstanding dining experience. Try the Kansas City Steak or the Cowboy Steak done the Keller way. It doesn't get better than that!"

From the moment you enter, tones of old world yellows, stone fireplaces, wrought iron cellar gates and sconces, soft candlelight, coves with upholstered sofa seating and friendly staff, it's an undeniable inviting space, nothing short of extraordinary. Two special occasion tables with antique throne chairs and live piano music add to the intimacy. Two romantic dining rooms cater to an elegant crowd, while the long narrow bar gathers a friendly and fun bunch nightly.<br /><br><br><br />The cuisine truly upholds the name of Fine Portuguese/Spanish Dining, seafood and fish, organic meats, the freshest ingredients and to maintain the tradition, huge portions are to be expected. The menu is seasonal and in addition to a varied selection of delectable dishes to satisfy any palette, daily specials are always featured. The wine list with over 180 selections is an ambitious one that keeps growing, but sure not to disappoint the discriminating connoisseur.<br /><br />

"Adega Grill is a truly authentic Portuguese / Spanish restaurant in Newark. Don't miss the paella, chourico portugues and the grilled octopus, among many of the unbelievable dishes we have had. After dinner, enjoy a night cap and cigar on their outdoor patio, while enjoying good music and fun crowds."

Strip House Midtown at 44th Street brings all the Strip House signatures to a brand new bi-level space for lunch, dinner and private dining. Visit the new NYC location for a classic cocktail at the bar, or a full steakhouse experience. Experience the combination of charred cuts perfectly paired with decadent sides, in a siren red interior where old world glamour meets modern style and sophistication. Named a top steakhouse by Zagat and awarded four stars by Forbes, the namesake cut isn’t the only thing to marvel upon...walls are adorned with original Studio Manasse prints of 1930s burlesque stars.

"Strip House Midtown was excellent. Definitely one of the best steakhouses in the City. Started with a classic Manhattan, which was superb. The Seafood Platter is of the freshest variety, the Kobe Strip Sirloin is exceptional as are all the sides, especially the fries cooked in goose fat."

The Carriage House offers a fine dining a la carte menu during the weeks when the theater is not in production and prix-fixe, pre-theatre dining to Paper Mill patrons, directly across from the theatre entrance. Award-winning chef Holly Guber is proud to be at the helm of this newly renovated gem that is also open when the theatre is dark, with an eclectic menu of small and large plates, and a stunning selection of interesting wines by the glass.

"Carriage House has come a long way. It has definitely become a wonderful addition to the Millburn dining scene. Set in beautiful surroundings, the restaurant now offers a limited, yet superb, selection of food, augmented by excellent service, a full bar and a wonderful ambiance. This is not your "run of the mill" pre-theatre venue. It is in fact a wonderful dining destination. All that's missing is an outdoor seating area to enjoy the beautiful weather and external surroundings."

Fogo de Chão® (fo-go dèe shoun), is an authentic Southern Brazilian steakhouse. In 1979, Fogo® began sharing the gaucho way of preparing meat in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Today, our gaucho chefs still expertly grill each of our 16 cuts of meat and offer you continuous tableside service. <br /><br /><br /><br />We invite you to enjoy the delicious preparations of our gaucho chefs along with our gourmet salad bar, authentic Brazilian side dishes, and award-winning wine list.

"Fogo de Chao DC was an OK experience. Having been to many other Brazilian Steakhouses, this was not among the better experiences. While the food is good, the ambiance is non-existant as it is a cavernous size and the service is average at best..."

"I typically avoid "Chain" restaurants. Capital Grille seems to be the rare exception to the rule. The Wall Street location is, like the other NYC ones, excellent, combining favorites (Seafood Platter, Steak Tartare, NY Strip) with flawless service."

A midtown classic with sprawling views of the NYC. Located in the heart of Midtown, this steakhouse offers incredible service and great food in a beautiful three level space. Known for having one of the city's best wine lists and bar scenes, Del Frisco's is the perfect place for small groups and parties of up to 80.

"Still one of the best steakhouses in NYC, despite being part of a chain. The gratin potatoes and the trio of Filet Mignons are a sure bet and can't miss!"
