Shortly after guests settle into plush golden armchairs, servers deliver appetizers such as steak tartare or fried calamari. The main course proves to be similarly indulgent with 10-ounce filets mignons and organic half chickens flavored with lemon and thyme, each of which diners may pair with sides such as truffle-oil-infused creamed spinach. The evening winds down with the arrival of dessert, with options including housemade tiramisu and cream puffs.
Although this deal does not include alcohol, guests can augment their meals with selections from Club A Steakhouse’s ample wine cellar. And if seated in the piano room, diners can toast to the melodies flowing from the baby grand piano, framed by floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto leafy treetops with Fabergé-egg-filled nests.
Club A Steak House
When Bruno Selimaj shuttered his Northern Italian restaurant in 2007, it marked the end of a three-decade run as a hot spot for Midtown's politicians and mobsters. However, with the opening of Club A Steakhouse, Bruno reprises his recipe for dry-aged strips—the very ones enjoyed by Donald, Rudy, and the Gottis—and rebrands the venue as an elegant niche for modern American cuisine.
In addition to searing prime dry-aged rib eyes, chefs braise pinot noir short ribs, roast lemon-thyme chicken, and assemble littleneck clams on the half shell. They diversify flavor profiles with seven sauces (hollandaise, bordelaise, and a house steak sauce, among others) and fill out plates with robust, starch-based sides. Servers dispatch these dishes to linen-topped tables in a crimson dining room that's decorated with black-and-white snapshots of famous patrons. A wine cellar and piano room branch off the main hall, furnishing dimly lit corners and upholstered banquettes in which to sip wine or play spin the bottle.
The atmosphere is so romantic, the food is impeccable, and the service does not get any better.Miss Mason M., Yelp, 9/3/12
