Frank Sebree's historic and haunted downtown steakhouse (built as a Pendergast-era saloon in 1911) isn't in the same price point as Capital Grille or the American Restaurant, but it's not the Golden Corral, either. The dry-aged steaks range from $29 for 8 ounces of prime rib to $62 for the 14-ounce Beefeater filet. (Unlike many of its competitors, the Majestic serves meals that include soup or salad and two side dishes.) When someone else is paying the tab, you might feel emboldened enough to order crab cakes or a charcuterie plate before dinner and, afterward, English-toffee bread pudding, a small glass of 20-year-old Taylor Fladgate tawny port, and an espresso. You should.
