USDA Prime Beef 40 Day Dry-Aged Bone-In Steak, Cowboy Ribeye and Prime Rib
Since opening to the public in 2020 after 65-years as a members-only Supper Club, you would think that there would be many signature dishes that The Anvil Club could tout to the world. And to be sure, its menu is rife with classics from Lobster Bisque to Surf & Turf. However, the Club’s tagline speaks succinctly to The Anvil Club’s claim to fame: “Prime Steaks and Seafood since 1956.” Not Select. Not Choice. USDA Prime! The USDA website says: “ Prime beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat) and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels. Prime roasts and steaks are excellent for dry-heat cooking such as broiling, roasting, or grilling.” From the Club’s 22 oz. USDA Prime 40-day dry-aged, bone-in, Cowboy Ribeye to our succulent Prime Rib, the Anvil Club is the ultimate place for Steakhouse favorites.

Served with creamy mashed potato, roasted potato, honey orange glazed carrots and fine green beans. It’s the salmon lover’s favorite dish!

8 Oz. Bistro Steak
Steak is something to be enjoyed year round, but this new one makes spring-time ingredients the star of the show. English peas are pureed and laid under a tender bistro steak that’s smothered in compound butter. Garnished with spring mushrooms and pearl onions, this dish is best enjoyed al fresco on The Graceful Ordinary’s stunning new wraparound riverside terrace.
