Nick & Stef’s Steakhouse

Giant cuts of beef hang in a glass-walled aging chamber at Joachim Splichal’s steak house. Service in the moderne dining room is flawless, meats are cooked perfectly, the sweet potato fries are festive, and the lemon meringue pie is a perfect coda.
Best Steakhouse Veggie Sides, December 2007
Julienned strips of Moroccan-style preserved lemon punch up the bittersweet flavor of the sautéed rapini at Nick & Stef’s. Surprisingly few green vegetable dishes we sampled stood up to the rich taste of dry-aged beef as well as this one, whose whisper of flaked chile gives the greens a kick.
