When Shinbashi originally opened in 1974 waitresses wearing traditional clothing served the then novel sushi and traditional Japanese dishes. Shinbashi became popular amongst Japanese businessmen visiting New York and the restaurant was reviewed in the New York Times by Ruth Reichi in 1998 calling it "venerable Japanese." The new incarnation is following in the tradition of attracting Japanese guests but does so in a modern setting. The restaurant remains streamlined and cleanly lit so as to showcase the food. Quality of fish and presentation are of the highest standard and it is this attention to detail that is carried into the attentive service. Shinbashi offers an environment for you to appreciate your meal at the pace you choose and the space to enjoy your conversation.

"I like that it's significantly away from the curb so there's no issue with exhaust fumes (as is the case with too many sidewalk set ups). Great, fresh sushi/sashimi. Service can be slow at lunch so allow sufficient time for the meal."

Keens Steakhouse, a classic New York chophouse, was already famous for its steaks and chops at the turn of the century. Founded in 1885, Keens has 90,000 clay pipes that line the ceilings – pipes once smoked by customers after dinner. Today Keens legendary mutton chops and dry aged prime steaks are still without equal in the city.

Delmonico’s, the country’s first fine dining restaurant, has expanded its premier location at 56 Beaver Street to Midtown Manhattan. But be warned, this is not your father's Delmonico's! Prepare to be dazzled with its chic,modern interior and casual vibe. Just steps from Madison Square Garden, Macy's, and Broadway theater this contemporary spinoff boasts a sleek marble bar, deep red leather banquettes, and candlelight tables.Perfect for lunch, a drink after work, or dinner before the big game.<br /><br />Delmonico's Kitchen brings a globally inspired, seasonal approach to dining using organic and local ingredients to create savory twists to some of the original legendary dishes such as Delmonico Steak, Eggs Benedict, and Baked Alaska. <br /><br />Separating itself from other traditional steakhouses with its innovative dishes and updates on the classics, the new Delmonico's Kitchen will surely entice guests to come back for more.<br /><br />

Collectively, we’ve been in the steakhouse business for as long as you’ve been craving a truly unique dining experience – maybe even longer. At Ward's House of Prime Milwaukee, we learned what you wanted from a steakhouse and then we designed a restaurant where high-end entrees are served at a reasonable price in an atmosphere that’s upscale yet relaxed.<br /><br><br><br />At our steakhouse, we want you to feel just as comfortable ordering full-plate entrees in the main dining room as you would ordering from the bar menu and watching sports in the lounge. While prime rib is our specialty (served every day), we also give special attention to seafood, chicken, veal and vegetarian entrees as well as our lighter fare of appetizers, sliders and stonefire flatbreads. And we offer a variety of martinis, beers, cocktails and wines by the glass – as well as an extensive list of 500 wines by the bottle, all at a fair price.<br /><br><br><br />We hope you’ll dine with us soon!

"Maybe in several other states too. Huge portions (if you want to eat that much) for a fair price--fresh, delicious, perfectly prepared. One criticism, the au jus is very salty, I would suggest asking for it on the side; the meat is so juicy that it's not necessary and that way one can pour as little or as much as you like on the roast."

Star chef David Walzog, whose innovative chophouse fare continues to make SW Steakhouse one of the hottest addresses in town, turns from turf to surf at Lakeside. From this glamorous perch at the water's edge, he crafts modern cuisine that showcases his deft touch with seafood cooking. Iced Florida stone crab claws and lavish shellfish platters; ocean-fresh fish and a large variety of wood-oven roasted lobsters from various ports of call anchor his menu, while prime aged steaks, chops and a succulent slow roasted prime rib of beef round out the bill of fare. Lakeside's new 'Ocean-to-Table' seafood program showcases a specially curated menu of the most unique species of wild caught fish found in the Hawaiian Islands.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill is the master stroke of chefs and restaurateurs, Eric and Bruce Bromberg. This sushi haven brings a food lovers' delight to Las Vegas: an award-winning sushi palace, an exquisite Japanese steakhouse and almost everything in between. The menu here offers an opulent array of dramatically prepared sushi and sashimi, signature dishes such as their famous beef marrow bones and fried chicken with wasabi honey, along with other sumptuous favorites, all beautifully elevated, prepared and served with original flair and hospitality.

The only Indian restaurant to be awarded by Time Out New York. The 110 seat restaurant is located within the newly renovated San Carlos Hotel with a street and lobby entrance. The exotic atmosphere whisks you to Southeast Asia as soon as you open the door and spot the stone waterfall cascading down the wall. Orange, red, and fuscia drum lights are snuggled together throughout the long dining room, and painted panels of mint, yellow, and green hang over striped banquettes. There is a semi-private room complete with audio video equipment that seats 12. Mint is a labor of love for Gary Sikka, and he is taking great pride in bringing an exemplary dining experience in an atmosphere that is both tranquil and exhilarating. The definition of mint is "an aromatic refreshing herb that serves as a central ingredient in accompaniment sauces in Indian cuisine." That can also be said of the new restaurant that is its namesake.

"There are lots and lots of steakhouses, Shula's is not a bad choice, and in the Times Square/Theater District area probably the best choice, food-wise. But I wasn't all that thrilled with service--first, two different bottles of wine I ordered were out of stock (and the waiter tried to have me purchase the wine the restaurant was clearly pushing--which was seriously overpriced), but they did at least comp us a glass of Malbec (but not the type of red I had wanted to drink)--then the prix fixe included dessert, but we had to leave for the theater and they were seriously slow about having a piece wrapped to go, so we left."
