If not, here’s a brief recap. They’re magnificent. They come from cows.

Meet Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse, a flashy new chop spot in Union Square, now open.
If you come here, sit in a booth, order a 25-ounce bone-in rib eye and drink a martini, you win. But if you want to see where this place fits on the Luger-to-STK continuum of steakhouse utility, well, you’ll need to know this...
There’s a Strong Vegas and AC Pedigree
Which explains the casino floor carpeting, abundance of sparkly things and waitresses wearing sequined minidresses. If you squint really hard, it sort of looks like a strip club. Otherwise known as the steakhouse’s second cousin.
They’ve Got a Very Aggressive Olive Program
Big, pitted suckers that are stuffed with anchovies, habaneros, garlic, almonds or lemon peel. Thankfully, they’ve also got a very aggressive martini. File under “afternoon snack.”
At Lunch, the Best Steak Is a Sandwich
On the roll: caramelized onions and creamy horseradish sauce. On the side: sea-salt fries. On the other side: hey, there’s that martini again.

It’s great for special occasions (birthdays, Flag Days, conference calls with Tokyo). It’s also the only satellite office in the city with both high-speed Internet and porterhouses topped with bone-marrow bordelaise.
