Sometimes you just want to pretend like you’re an important businessman and exchange business cards with people like you’re Patrick Bateman in American Psycho - except maybe without the whole serial killer situation. When that’s the case, you want to go to Del Frisco’s. It’s in the old Packard building, which is so big it’s basically like having a meal inside of 30th Street Station, and the crowd here is generally lots of people in suits one-upping each other over a few porterhouses. Along with the traditional options, there are some cheesesteak dumplings that are delicious, and you should end every meal with the butter cake.
