Tudor City – the exclusive apartment complex situated between 1st and 2nd Avenues and 40th and 43rd Streets has had a dormant restaurant space within it for the last six years. Now, that space has been reawakened with a brand new opening called Tudor City Steakhouse.
The “next generation” steakhouse comes from Sylvan Hospitality, a new restaurant group run by Mirso and John Lekic. The restaurant sits across from the United Nations – a spot which has inspired their international menu that spans USDA prime-on-premise dry aged beef, sushi, Peruvian ceviche, Venezuelan tamales and pasta. The 250-seat restaurant also boasts stunning views of the East River.
Three chefs have been recruited for the opening to put together the diverse menu that includes grilled octopus, yellow corn tamale and calamari to start. Larger dishes include a choice of five steak cuts five steaks cuts – house dry-aged Porterhouse for two to grilled skirt steak, which can be accompanied by any of four house made sauces as well as ouster risotto or a chicken marsala.
A trio of chefs have been brought on board for the opening, including Joaquin Linares, who’ll be in charge of dry aging the prime steaks like the porterhouse for two ($46.95 per person) and rib eye steak ($49.95), along with a veal chop ($42.95) and loin lamb chops ($44.95), served with sauces like barolo wine and truffle butter.
Mains range from $30-$50.
In A Nutshell:
This international spot houses a private room for 70 and also has an outdoor space that seats up to 50 guests for al fresco dining.
