This new high-end steakhouse may not seem like the most prudent choice in this economy, in this restaurant climate, even in this steak house-choked town. But it’s fabulous, with a la carte prime meats and fresh fish cooked at 1,200 degrees and served simply. Many of the sides are stunning versions of classics: potato gratin gets an uplifting jalapeno smolder; spinach is lush with cream and smoky bacon. The ninth restaurant concept of Columbus, Ohio, entrepreneur Cameron Mitchell looks like the dining room of a stately old cruise ship: porthole windows and gleaming wooden paneling, huge amber-lit chandeliers that you can imagine swaying a little with the waves. The dining room staff, clad in white servers' jackets (also very cruise ship) are exceptional, whisking in and out to crumb a table or refill a glass.
