Located in the heart of midtown, BLT Steak is our interpretation of the classic steakhouse, coupled with signature style and all-around finesse. Enhanced by the richness of Macassar Ebony tables and matching suede booths, BLT Steak combines a bistro ambiance with steakhouse fare. Certified Black Angus or USDA Prime steak are dressed with a selection of sauces, ranging from Bearnaise to Horseradish, and are paired with decadent sides such as Parmesan flavored Gnocchi and oversized Onion Rings. Add BLT Steak’s sumptuous selection of fresh seafood, signature salads and blackboard specials and it sets the standard for today’s modern steakhouse.<br /><br />A 23-foot zinc bar greets diners with an excellent array of libations for pre- or post- dining pleasure.

"BLT steak was very disappointing. Have been going for years and things have been getting steadily worse while prices are moving aggressively higher. Where to begin? Famous popovers came out lukewarm, bacon appetizer was mostly fat an unappetizing, steak was tough and not good, $50 sole entree was mediocre. A big disappointment and dinner for two with a couple glasses of wine was over $300. Can not recommend"

The 56-seat neighborhood spot is a modern interpretation of a public house, offering casual food, well-crafted cocktails and an extensive selection of intriguing and affordable wines. In the spirit of every great pub, guests are welcomed to drop in for anything from a drink and a quick bite on the way home after work, to joining with friends or family in sharing a meal.<br /><br />Chef Wylie Dufresne, along with Executive Chef Jon Bignelli, apply innovative techniques in the kitchen at Alder, taking familiar dishes and flavor combinations and presenting them in their own unique style, celebrating New York City’s diverse food culture in the process. Dufresne and Bignelli find their inspiration in their metropolitan surroundings: New York is a city where we can source the best ingredients from around the world and turn them into something distinctly American.

"Pros: Food is terrific and interesting.. Pastrami pasta, octopus, coconut beets, steak were all quite good, service was nice maybe a little slow but fine
Cons: LOUD not sure what they can do about this given the space but not the place for a romantic dinner a real potential issue.. Wine list was a little too funky
We are glad we went but doubt we will go back"

Welcome to Toloache (pronounced toh-lo-AH-tchay), chef-owner Julian Medina's contemporary Mexican bistro located in the Upper East Side. Toloache is named after a flowering plant famed in Mexico for its use in love potions. We hope that when you dine with us you too will fall under the spell of chef Medina's creative cooking, which incorporates seasonal and natural ingredients and more than a dozen types of chilies. Along with the authentic Mexican menu and an exceptional tequila list, we offer elegant decorative elements imported from Mexico. We look forward to seeing you soon.

"Overall food was good and they had an interesting selection of tequilas. Our major issue was 1) it was super loud and 2) it was way overpriced for what you are getting. A Mexican meal for two adults and 7 year old without wine should not cost nearly $250+ with tip. I"
