There are steakhouses for celebrating business deals, steakhouses for wooing lovers and steakhouses where the only imperative is to enjoy a good plate of quality red meat. Bob's Steak and Chop Shop falls in the latter category. While parties flock to this local favorite, there are few better spots for a single eater to sidle up to the bar, drink a strong martini and eat beef. The flavorful steaks all come with a massive peeled-and-parsley-ed carrot, but the potato's left to the diner's discretion. Go with the home fries submerged in peppercorn gravy – a sufficient excuse for starting with a mere half-portion of the brawny blue cheese salad.
