Saloon is both one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the city - the linguine pescatore is one of their many stand-out pasta dishes - and also one of our favorite non-traditional steakhouses. Their list of steaks is up there with the far more expensive ones you’ll find at bigger steakhouses, and the floor-to-ceiling wood walls and stained glass windows make it feel kind of like you’re in the rectory of a church that happens to have a lot of extra communion wine.
