The Low Down


Fun Fact: The historical artifacts at Keens impress as much as the food. Some 50,000 clay pipes, dangling from the ceiling, hearken back to the days when Babe Ruth, Albert Einstein and Theodore Roosevelt puffed away.

What to Drink: The restaurant's list of 200 single malt Scotches is among the largest variety available in North America.

Where to Sit: Try to get in the smaller (and older) of the two dining rooms for maximum atmosphere.
