Culinary trends come and go, but the solid American cuisine served at the wildly popular Charley’s Steakhouse and the other terrific restaurants under the Talk of the Town restaurant group’s umbrella is always in demand. Join chef Dan Drayer for a menu of delicious classics like Champagne-poached oysters, Florida lobster, and, of course, cooked-to-perfection steak.
