DINING IN STYLE:  NEW YORK'S EMPIRE STEAK HOUSE; EAT, DRINK, LOVE

BY:  LYNN MARIE

It's not just about the food anymore - a great meal is a visual and sensory experience as well.  Empire Steak House is in a class all of its own for your dining experience.  From the wait staff to the decor, this restaurant has a warmth, divine setting with a certain amount of flair that is seen in no other restaurant establishment in New York City.

The ambiance is "alive" and the wine list is above standard.  The wait staff are at the top of their class with their fine attention to every detail.  This is what makes the difference when you are dining out for the evening.  From the hot towels with lemon before your main course to the presentation of the cuisine it's an evening in the Big Apple you will soon not forget.

The fresh mozzarella & beefsteak tomatoes, the seafood platter and the Porterhouse steak for two are a must.  The side dishes are very generous in proportions; my favorites are the sautéed mushrooms, creamed spinach and the steamed asparagus.   

The menu at Empire Steakhouse features the same dry-aged porterhouse for two that made Ben & Jack's famous.

Their reputation is based on their steaks, Empire Steakhouse proudly serves only the highest-quality USDA PRIME meats.

They personally handpick the best loins, fresh from the area's best markets.  Each loin is closely inspected to ensure the optimal mix of color, fat and bone quality.  Once at Empire, the loins rest in their spacious coolers, where they are dry-aged for a full 21 to 28 days.  

Their food is complimented by a fine wine list that is expansive, yet highly selective - and features many of California's most sought after vintages.

Isn't it true that food, drink and good friends/family are the primary reasons for venturing out at night?  The holidays are upon us and it's a perfect time for a weekend getaway  to New York City.  When making your dinner reservations, make your first dinner in New York City  at Empire Steakhouse.     

Empire Steak House is located at 36 W 52nd Street, New York, NY 10019 (212) 582-6900.  Lunch is served from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm and dinner is served nightly starting at 5:00 pm.
