Do as they do in “Mad Men” – “dress up, have a martini, take it easy and smile” – at this “classic” Mt. Vernon steakhouse that’s still operating at the very “top of its game”, delivering “fantastic” “slabs of meat” and “masterful seafood”; from the “sophisticated”, “1940s supper-club vibe” to the “sublime” tuxedoed service, it’s a “perfect evening out”; P.S. business-casual dress (with jackets required after 5 PM Saturday).
