Robert Sietsema checks out "the unpronounceable Birreria" in New York and calls its downstairs sibling Manzo "an excellent refectory in a drafty hallway that sometimes seems like a promotional stunt for beef." Victoria Pesce Elliott reviews "decadent meat palace" Kane Steakhouse in Miami. And Jonathan Kauffman dubs The Old Clam House, a San Francisco restaurant that's been open since 1861, "just another tourist trap." Here are the mid-week reviews:
