Now Open: 801 Chop House
By OWEN MORRIS
The 801 Chop House has more menus than some restaurants have items: a fine wines menu, a wines-by-the-glass menu, a bar menu, a fresh catch menu, a Sunday prix-fixe menu, a dessert menu and finally, a menu. Each is printed on a separate sheet of heavy paper; the fine wines menu is six pages with a six-point font. It’s almost as if 801 Chop House is trying to show off.
Actually, 801 Chop House is showing off. It makes no apologies for its train-magnate/oil-baron prices.
