Empire Steakhouse

Established by the owners behind Ben and Jack’s Steakhouse, Empire Steakhouse is an experience in itself, located in NYC’s iconic Rockefeller Plaza. This gorgeous restaurant also offers extraordinary prime dry aged porterhouse steaks and a classic steakhouse menu.

About Empire Steak House: Founded by Jeff Sinanaj and his brothers, Empire Steak House proudly brings the time honored tradition of quality steaks to create the premier Midtown Steakhouse. With a combined experience of over 25 years as former Peter Luger waiters, the Sinanaj Brothers are experts at providing the finest dining experience. Jeff Sinanaj is very much a hands-on owner and is just as likely to be found greeting guests, orchestrating the kitchen’s operations, or attending to his patrons. The menu at Empire Steak House features the signature dry-aged porterhouse for two. Because their reputation is based on their steaks, Empire Steak House proudly serves only the highest quality USDA Prime meats. They personally handpick the best loins, fresh from the area’s best markets. Each loin is closely inspected to ensure the optimal mix of color, fat and bone quality. Once at Empire, the loins rest in our spacious coolers, where they are dry-aged for a full 21 to 28 days. While Empire Steak House is acclaimed for its famous porterhouse for two, the rest of the vast menu is equally stellar. Empire Steak House features a wide range of fresh seafood such as 4-to 5-lb lobsters, Chilean Sea Bass, Salmon, Yellow Fin Tuna, towering seafood platters, and much more. A host of exciting side dishes include German potatoes, creamed spinach, sautéed asparagus, and other favorites. Great desserts round out every meal, which include Junior’s New York Cheesecake and chocolate mousse. Their great food is complemented by an extensive, highly selective wine list and features many of California’s most sought-after vintages. While steakhouses are known for their dark and wood-paneled decor, Empire Steak House has a decidedly unique feel. Here, the room features large sweeping windows, and a light, airy ambiance. The architectural lines are long and sleek and contrast nicely with the soft, bright colors of the interior design; a dynamic, artful balance. The backlit bar and upstairs private dining room each provide an additional air of sophistication.
