Today’s priciest bottle: 2007 Opus One Imperial Magnum, $6,479

If a corporate bigwig wanted to blow $6,479 on a single bottle of wine (pictured), he’d do it at this landmark steakhouse, which has been perfecting old-school hospitality for more than 35 years. Heck, if he did, you could probably find his caricature framed on the wood-paneled walls, an honor reserved for veteran customers. The 28-ounce porterhouse is as well-aged as the servers, 15 of whom have been on staff for at least a decade. Even lunch at the salon-like bar feels like a treat, a prime perch from which to sip a martini, chow down on the city’s best burger (order it medium-rare, add cheddar, slather on mayo), and finish with a towering mile-high ice cream pie.
