In 1885 Keens Chophouse opened independently under the ownership of Albert Keen, by then a noted figure in the Herald Square Theatre District. Keens soon became the lively and accepted rendezvous of the famous. Actors in full stage make-up hurried through the rear door to “fortify” themselves between acts at the neighboring Garrick Theatre. By the time Keens celebrated its 20th anniversary, you...

You don't have to be a carnivore to appreciate the "rich history" of this circa-1885 Garment District "meat house", though "outstanding" steaks and "glorious" mutton chops ("yeah, you read that right") are key to its "charm"; with "seamless" service, a "superb" scotch selection and thousands of antique clay pipes "adorning the ceiling", it "doesn't get more old NY."

The legendary Keens---Teddy Roosevelt dined there regularly as NY Police Commissioner before his presidency---does a steady lunch business (reservations are a must), as does the tap room. Opened in 1885 as a clubby garment-center haunt, it… Read More

Antica Pesa Launches Brunch; Steakhouses and Women

WILLIAMSBURG ? Stylish Rome import Antica Pesa is launching brunch on Saturday, March 23. It'll be available from 12 to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and will feature a selection of Italian brunch dishes as well as three different pastas. [EaterWire]

Keens is so impossibly authentic that it's easy to overlook how beautifully art-directed it is -- a homage and, really, an improvement of the genre. Yes, it's been around a million years and yes, it sells a signature item that nobody has liked in forty years, but Keens benefits from hindsight. That, and a matchless collection of Scotch whiskies.

Business description (4)

Keens Steakhouse, a classic New York chophouse, was already famous for its steaks and chops at the turn of the century. Founded in 1885, Keens has 90,000 clay pipes that line the ceilings – pipes once smoked by customers after dinner. Today Keens legendary mutton chops and dry aged prime steaks are still without equal in the city.

Keens Steakhouse owns the largest collection of churchwarden pipes in the world. The tradition of checking one’s pipe at the inn had its origins in 17th century Merrie Old England where travelers kept their clay at their favorite inn – the thin stemmed pipe being too fragile to be carried in purse or saddlebag. Pipe smoking was known since Elizabethan times to be beneficial for dissipating...

Keens has become Manhattan's best known USDA Prime-only steakhouse. Its reputation is legendary, its Single Malt collection equally so.

Tips about this business (4)

Keens is so impossibly authentic that it's easy to overlook how beautifully art-directed it is -- a homage and, really, an improvement of the genre. Yes, it's been around a million years and yes, it sells a signature item that nobody has liked in forty years, but Keens benefits from hindsight. That, and a matchless collection of Scotch whiskies.

What to Drink: The restaurant's list of 200 single malt Scotches is among the largest variety available in North America.

Where to Sit: Try to get in the smaller (and older) of the two dining rooms for maximum atmosphere.

Fun Fact: The historical artifacts at Keens impress as much as the food. Some 50,000 clay pipes, dangling from the ceiling, hearken back to the days when Babe Ruth, Albert Einstein and Theodore Roosevelt puffed away.
