• Steakhouse • Little Italy
Booked 140 times today
The American steakhouse is an iconic restaurant institution. We’d wanted to tell that story for years, but waited until we had the skill, talent and ability to execute it properly, and the right space to be our canvas, an important corner in Little Italy, a neighborhood where we have deep roots. We brought an almost academic appreciation for steakhouse history and tradition to Born & Raised, while trying to stay relevant and authentic to ourselves and our city. Our dry-aged beef pays tribute to earlier, earthier, pre-government grading practices and is the centerpiece of a meal best savored at a slow pace. A timeless celebration of everything that makes restaurants so special. - Consortium Holdings. A 4% surcharge is added to all guest checks.

    Adventures for L & L took us to University Heights for breakfast (at a brunch time) to a restaurant called Great Maple. The food was great and a huge!! We also looked at the amazing food other patrons had. ( little drooling happened too) Small parking lot, better off to find parking on the street. We were there at 11am and it was packed already. ***suggestion is make reservations on Open Table*** made it easier for us. She had “French Toast Logs” and it came with candied maple smoked bacon and syrup drizzled on top! It comes in 4 logs!! She said the bread was as fluffy as Angel cake. As for me, I had the normal 2 egg breakfast with home fries that had thyme and something else on it that was fantastic, bacon and some fruit. Plus we had Peach Bellinis! 🤪🤪 The have beignets made to order then they are brought to your table and prepared in front of you. Since we didn’t have any I can’t tell you how they were prepared but we saw them afterwards. Looked soooo tempting, but after you eat your breakfast or brunch or lunch you may not have room for the beignets!!!
