Sometimes you want steak. Hy’s Encore (Gold) supplies beautifully charcoal-licked Prime meat in an unironic room of white jackets, metal platters, and top sides like cauliflower gratin.
Sometimes you want sizzle. Gotham (Silver) does expense-account dining with obsessive attention to quality: Prime bone-in rib-eye, insane potatoes Lyonnaise, fresh, over-the-top seafood tower indulgence-big flavours, big returns.
