Hunt & Fish Club - New York
Hunt & Fish Club is a steak house like no other, serving steaks that stand apart, some of the best in New York City, USDA prime beef, along with an impressive selection of salads and sides. Many New York restaurants claim they aim for decadence; Hunt & Fish Club hits the decadent bull’s eye, serving splendor with sides of opulence and spectacle.
It’s likely that the moment you walk in Hunt & Fish Club, what will pass through your mind is the thought, “I’ve never seen a steak house like this before.”
And you’d probably be right.
Open in 2014, Hunt & Fish Club – with 9,000 square feet, 50,000 pounds of marble, and almost 200 seats – looks like a swank 1960s American steak house, with elements of an elegant art gallery.
“Our goal,” explains Eytan Sugarman, with Anthony Scaramucci (yes, that Anthony Scaramucci) co-owner of Hunt & Fish Club, “is to bring back the character and depth of old school New York in a contemporary setting. We’ve worked hard to create a space that Sinatra would have been spotted at; a restaurant that is a cut above the rest with a rare design, signature cuisine, and distinct style of service that makes everyone feel special when they walk through the door.”
There’s a 16-ounce Kosher style ribeye, a Porterhouse for two, 10-ounce bone-in New York Strip and many other steak house classics, all of which can be dressed with an impressive assortment of toppings, including lush bone marrow, truffle crab Oscar, stuffed lobster, Roquefort cheese or colossal shrimp.
Be forewarned, this place is a little over-the-top – with huge sparkling chandeliers and $120 tins of Ossetra caviar – which may be just what you’re looking for in a steak house – and if so, Hunt & Fish Club is the steak house for you. Monday through Friday and Sunday, however, there’s a very reasonably priced ($38) prix fixe lunch that includes appetizers, entrées and dessert, so it’s definitely possible to visit Hunt & Fish Club without taking out a second mortgage.
