With 40 years of restaurant experience to their credit, Statler Grill Restaurant's owners invoke the spirit of a classic New York City chophouse on their steak-and-seafood laden dinner menu. Napkins parachute onto the laps of dining duos to catch fallen remnants from appetizers such as the whole-lobster cocktail and the Maryland crab cake. Flames run their fiery fingers along entrees, including tender slabs of prime-rib steak that cling to the bone and generous portions of prime porterhouse. Like the life-affirming punch line of a Family Circus comic strip, seafood such as Chilean sea bass, grilled salmon, and seared sashimi tuna arrives fresh daily. Two choices from the slew of sides, including sautéed mushrooms, a jumbo Idaho baked potato, or a side of pasta, accompanies each entree, encouraging palates to mix and match flavors and textures.
An 18% gratuity will be automatically added to the bill’s full amount.
During New York's golden age, when big-band music filled the streets and Tommy Dorsey and Count Basie reigned supreme in regal zoot suits, Ellsworth Statler held court at the Hotel Pennsylvania. Known as much for its delicious food as it was for its swanky shows, the hotel became the standard of swingin' cool by which all others were measured. Today, the same spirit that propelled Ellsworth Statler to greatness inhabits his namesake: the Statler Grill. Using classic midcentury charm and more than four decades of experience in the restaurant business, the owners of Statler Grill reanimate the New York of decades past, time-warping diners as they sit at tables cloaked in white linens amid muted lighting. Artwork festoons the walls, adding warm hues and a jubilant air while frosted glass and earth-toned walls segment the dining room for more romantic dining and more covert fantasy baseball meetings. An adjoining bar serves up a similar sophistication, with a menu of light fare appropriate for an after-work snack, or after a game, being located across the street from Madison Square Garden.
For dinner, the kitchen lines classic new york prime sirloins and porterhouses with the marks of the char grill. Seafood arrives fresh daily to offer the best flavors of the deep blue, including Prince Edward Island mussels, Long Island clams, and fried calamari. The chefs' traditional and inventive American fare complements every meal of the day, from eggs benedict for brunch to filet mignon for supper and Maryland crab cakes for late night sleep eating. All of this fancy fare doesn't get in the way of friendly service, though; the restaurant's friendly waitstaff and knowledgable bartenders earned glowing praise from the foodies at Midtown Lunch.
