Last week I was lucky enough to dine at Club A Steakhouse to celebrate my brother’s birthday. This place just oozes class. Nestled in Midtown East, this steakhouse boasts sultry red hues, dark wood, and low lighting that pairs perfectly with live jazz music and big juicy steaks. They even printed special menus that said ‘Happy Birthday’ at the top for us!
I’ve been to a fair amount of top-rated steakhouses in the city, and this one is definitely towards the top of my favorites list so far. The steaks were cooked to a perfect medium-rare, all the side dishes were excellent (we tried them all), and they had a great choice of wines to boot!
I love that they top all of their steaks with little plastic cows stating the meat temperature too. It was nice not having to guess if everyone got the right steak (come on, you know you’re never really sure). Some people might think it’s tacky, but I thought it was a nice touch.
Nothing bums me out more than when you have a delicious steak with mediocre side dishes. Not a problem here – this place had the best of both worlds! You need to try their maple and lemon charred brussel sprouts – it’s non-negotiable. They are to die for! I could swear their mashed potatoes were laced with truffle oil too… So. Freaking. Good.
