Joachim Splichal’s downtown steak house pushes the genre’s envelope. The decor is sedate enough — banquettes wear banker’s gray — but annexed to the dining room is a climate-controlled glass case filled with slabs of darkening, crusting, dry-aging beef — a library of meat. The a la carte menu features 12 kinds of potatoes, 6 sauces and at least as many other side dishes. The outside patio — a sunny clearing in a forest of skyscrapers — may be the most striking urban dining spot in town. Parking in Wells Fargo Center. Dinner entrees $26-$46.
