Our favorite restaurants often share one thing in common. We go there without ever having to look at the menu. We know the moment we walk in the door what we are going to order. There’s the linguine with clam sauce at West Bank Cafe (407 W. 42nd St., New York, NY 10036 at Ninth AvenueTel: 212 695 6909). The steak frites at Bistro Cassis (225 Columbus Ave, New York, NY, 10023 Tel: 212 579 3966). And at Joe Allen (326 West 46th St. New York, NY Tel: 212 581 6464), we inevitably order the Chopped Steak. This delicious charred-on-the-outside, rare-on-the-inside piece of great American beef is one of my favorite dishes on earth. And it isn’t even on the menu.
