Bancroft & Co.
Call your friends (or just pose for selfies) from the graffiti-covered working phone booths lining one wall of this stylish spot. Perfectly cooked steaks, high-end wine by the glass, and a beautiful teepee-shaped Romaine Caesar Salad are on the menu, along with a nice collection of starters to share. Not looking for a full dinner? Catch up in the comfortable lounge with classic cocktails—or house-made ice cream—after a long day of shopping.
