A Tiny Steakhouse Inside a Burger Place
Some fun news to end your workweek: the burger barons at JM Curley have decided to
turn their plush-boothed, 20-seat back room into a part-time steakhouse. It’s called Bogie’s
, and it opens Monday. Here are three things you need to know about it.
While the front of the house maintains normal hours, Bogie’s is
, Monday to Saturday, from 5 to 10pm. So if
you’re planning on demonstrating to out-of-town clients your knack for unearthing backroom hidden gems, be
sure to lock a table first.
They’ve got plenty of meat.
Besides the standard-y porterhouse pork chop, NY strip (dry-aged 30 days) and petite filet options
, look to the
monthly changing Bogie’s Seven offerings for variations. Think: pastrami-bacon compound butter, or a
classic side of baked potato, topped with crispy pig’s ear in place of bacon (ear is the only thing worth
replacing bacon for).
Etiquette is key.
It’s very cozy. So whether you’re grabbing a Boston Sidecar
(white rum, brandy, lemon) at the
three-seat bar with your mistress, or catching up with your now-famous Hollywood pal over a plate of mac and
cheese in a booth, excessive yapping on a cell phone is frowned upon. Keep that in mind.
Yes, even if Mom’s calling.
