In a three-piece suit and coiffed hairdo, Bruno Selimaj stands perfectly poised as one of New York’s reigning restaurateurs. He has helmed posh restaurants in New York since 1978, and his longevity is at least partially tied to his practice of treating every guest like royalty . At Club A Steakhouse, he continues his decades-long tradition of old-guard grandeur and fine dining. Today’s Groupon invites you and a guest to partake in that tradition with a four-course prix fixe dinner that includes the following:
- One appetizer per person
- One entree per person
- One side per person
- One dessert per person
Club A Steakhouse unfolds into a series of dining rooms, each more ornate than the last. The living room, for instance, is swathed in rich fabrics, creating a feeling of being insulated from the bustling city outside. Tufted satin brocade covers the walls and ceilings, and heavy mahogany and burgundy drapes flock the picture window. 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 filet 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 today’s Reserve selection 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.
