Keens Steakhouse

Dev Iyer
Famous for ceremoniously hanging pipes smoked by popular public figures from Albert Einsten, Mark Twain, Herbert Hoover, Buffalo Bill Cody, Babe Ruth and Teddy Roosevelt, all smoking enthusiasts. It's situated up on Herald Street which not many know was the original theatre district before Broadway. Artists would walk in between performances for a quick cup of ale and piping hot tenderloin steaks. Legend has it that earlier, each pipe was numbered and one would have to hand over one's membership to a page boy when one walked in and have them retrieve one's pipe. However, though today's laws prevent such arrangements, one can admire the 90,000 pipes that still line the ceilings of this Chophouse. Here's a look at their menu.Hours: 11.45 p.m - 10.30 a.m (Monday through Friday)5 p.m - 10.30 p.m (Weekends)Entry fee: Free
