One of the most popular steakhouses located near the UN building. Went from busy to always packed when Mafia Don Paul Castellano was murdered just steps from the entrance. Mr. Castellano knew his beef, he owned a legitimate meat packing business, so people assumed if Big Paulie ate here, the food must be great.
