Steel Appeal

Once a haven for gangsters, the Forge took its time learning to serve steak bloody

The wine list is still, indeed, awesome in terms of wines available by the bottle. By the glass, though, selection is distinctly nonthrilling, with not even a healthful pinot noir to accompany one's steak. A Simi cabernet had sufficient substance, if not enough complexity; major unevolved tannins predominated. At $12.50, it was no bargain.

To finish, the Forge's chocolate Grand Marnier soufflé (which needs to be ordered at the meal's start) is a traditional fave, but Rothschild does it very well. It is, in fact, so intense on its own that my advice would be to prevent your server from breaking the soufflé's crust and pouring in the pitcher of additional hot fudge, unless you favor old-style Forge -- you'll excuse the expression -- overkill.
