Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.<br /><br />New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

Masseria dei Vini (Masseria of Wines) is the new venture brought to you from the La Masseria Team. Restauranteur Pino Coladonato, Peppe Iuele and Enzo Ruggiero have teamed up again with Interior Designer Libby Langdon, bringing you a modern update version of "Masseria". In the region of Puglia, in South Italy, Masseria were Fortified Farmhouses, and many of them now have been transformed into Restaurants or Hotels. Executive Chef Pino Coladonato, native of Rutigliano (Bari), has created a menu that blends traditional with modern without overpowering one or the other. The Menu features typical dishes from Puglia, such as "Crudo", the Italian word for "Raw", made with fish and shellfish, a lot of fresh homemade pastas and different sizes and shapes of Ravioli. The menu also offers Gourmet Pizza Neapolitan style. The Restaurant will offer an extensive wine by the glass program and a large selection of wine bottles, mainly from Italy, but without ignoring the rest of the world.

"The restaurant was packed on a Thursday night, but we were seated promptly with a reservation. Great menu - alot of selection.
The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, but not attentive.
Food came out hot and tasted good - nothing wonderful though.

"The food was quite good. The Sangria was quite sub-par - we ordered a 1/2 pitcher of the white variety and it was quite watered down. The table next to us ordered 2 glasses and it looked like their servings combined were more than the 1/2 pitcher.
The Flamenco show was great.
Tables are very close together so it is a much better atmosphere for a group rather than for two.
A bit run down, but it was definitely a lively atmosphere. Make reservations! The line was out the door by the time we left.
