Al Capone allegedly worked here once, and he didn’t leave because the food was bad. He left New York because he pissed some guys off, and they were going to kill him. Woops.

Harry’s at Hanover Square 1 Hanover Square Manhattan (212) 425-3412 A great book (I didn’t say film), Bonfire of the Vanities, used this spot as a backdrop for the high-powered drinking of the characters. The steaks here are so good, I’m confident I could convert even the crunchiest vegetarian with one juicy forkful.
