Tale of the Tape
A Couple New Steakhouses in Midtown
’Tis a wondrous time to love steak. You’ve got two new Midtown heavy hitters getting into the game. One
(left), a rebirth of a bona fide classic. The other’s Angus Club
, a business-minded upstart just off Lex. We pitted them against each other for your benefit.
Just remember: no matter who wins, you do.
A completely renovated, clubby Theater District behemoth
that was first opened by a Ziegfeld girl. They invented the
New York strip.
Two floors of Midtown East power-lunching glory with a rustic subterranean
level for any clandestine meatings. (Sorry. We had to.)
Gallaghers. You invent a steak, you win.
Seven different hickory-grilled cuts
that sit dry-aged for about a month in a glorious room you’ll see
immediately as you enter.
Four cuts, all dry-aged for 30 to 35 days in-house. But the crown jewel
: a four-man porterhouse.
Angus Club. Four people is a feeding frenzy.
Cocktails thoroughly researched, created and
messed with (spectacularly) by a NoMad vet. (Check the 52nd Street Old Fashioned
More than a thousand wines.
Push. You’ll have to do a little more research to decide...
