David Aisenstat, aka the King of Steaks (the family also owns the upmarket Hy’s chain and Gotham) bought the Keg chain 15 years ago, and now his outlets stretch from Victoria to Toronto and south all the way to Dallas (our favourite remains the Yaletown room strictly for its excellent rooftop patio). The Keg is his prt-ˆ-manger line: along with more conventional steakhouse fare, you’ll find well-made shrimp cocktails, crab and lobster cakes, ribs, tempura snap peas and asparagus, and teriyaki chicken. Most are here for the beef: 28-day-aged Canada AAA steaks and prime rib.
