The Plaza, New York City

Michael Frank
From the Print Edition:
Winston Churchill, Autumn 93

(continued from page 1)

As an appetizer, the shrimp cocktail is delicious, and the Maryland crab cakes are slightly spicy with seasoning that does not overwhelm the fresh crab meat. In addition to great seafood, the Oak Room serves black Angus beef--and without a doubt the best cut is the 22-ounce T-bone.

Finishing off with a slice of exceedingly well-made New York cheesecake, a snifter of Rémy Martin Louis XIII ($100) and a cigar from the Oak Room humidor can extend the lunch hour into midafternoon. But at The Plaza, one more puff on your cigar and another sip of Cognac is so natural that to do otherwise is almost a violation of the law that rules here--the law of luxury.
