Porter House New York - New York
An upscale restaurant with a much-lauded chef serving some of the best steak and seafood around, Porter House New York in Time Warner Center sets a table with fantastic USDA prime red meat, wonderful fish, and fantastic views over Central Park. Cocktails are expertly prepared, and the wine list is flabbergasting. You’ll have a memorable meal here.
Chef Michael Lomanaco worked at ‘21’ and Windows on the World, and was one of the original Food Network and Travel Channel celebrity chefs before taking on the kitchen – as well as the ownership responsibilities – at Porter House New York.
“New York” magazine called it “the absolute best steak house in New York,” and there’s no doubt: there’s a lot to like on the Porter House New York menu. New York strip, cowboy rib steak, cote de boeuf (double cut rib eye), and, of course, porterhouse, are all USDA prime, dry-aged masterpieces of meat. There are also some wonderful Wagyu selections: a true Japanese 100% Wagyu New York strip steak, grade A5 from Miyazaki prefecture and a gold grade American Wagyu New York strip steak from Idaho’s Snake River Farms.
Adam Platt in the “New York Times” has his favorites: “The most outstanding piece of beef I encountered at Porter House is the chile-rubbed rib eye from Brandt farm in Southern California. Brandt beef, my friend the steak loon informed our table, comes from roly-poly Holstein dairy cows fed on a natural grain diet for 300 days. When the steak loon asked for his chop to be cooked medium rare (“the color of my gums”), that is exactly how it arrived. The meat was spicy, deliciously charred, and rich with fatty flavor, and as the steak loon chewed his meal, he tipped his head back and rolled his eyes with a kind of mad carnivore’s glee.”
To start, there’s exceptional fish and seafood (like gold sturgeon caviar), as well as lobster and king crab to enjoy along the way.
The wine list is long and filled with many things you will want to drink.
