A Hip Midtown Steakhouse
A couple of weeks ago, the intern class finished their 10-week stay at my company. Like all proper celebrations, we celebrated with an incredible meal! The restaurant of choice was STK Midtown, a super hip steakhouse very close to work. I went here last year for lunch during Restaurant Week and loved it. The bread was delicious then and REMAINS delicious!
Before we sat at the table, we had a short cocktail hour. I don't remember what was in the drink I ordered...I do remember it being delicious.
Look at how beautiful this bread is! Clearly, the middle piece is the best - the hardest one to get ALWAYS is! It is served with a yummy pesto dip!
We had a pre-set menu to choose from. I ordered the wedge salad and steak cooked medium. There were a variety of sides served with it: mac and cheese, polenta squares and asparagus. The salad was fine...the steak? DIVINE! It was cooked to the perfect temperature, moist and juicy. I loved it! The sides were great as well!
The dessert was tasty though it looked more beautiful than it tasted. Sometimes, I prefer a straightforward dessert (chocolate lava cake!) than something that tries to be something fancy through presentation.
This is a "see and be seen" steakhouse. People come here to rub-elbows not necessarily to inhale steak. If you're looking for a place like that, go to Wolfgang's - this is a good choice when you want something trendy.
