Wealthy techies set down their smartphones and plug in face-to-face at this swank steakhouse, where a double-wide dining room, fireside lounge, and duo of exhibition kitchens aim to sate executives doing deals on the company tab. Pricey steaks emerge from the glass-enclosed aging room, while the bar is the place to go for high-dollar Napa cabernets and rare whiskeys. The flash at Alexander's extends to the more-is-more menu, which often piles on overpowering ingredients to diminishing returns-and those with sensitive palates should order carefully. If you're not dining with a group, opt for the more sedate bar, which boasts friendlier, less-scripted service (you can skip the upsold hamachi shots) and a cast of interesting Silicon Valley characters.
