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 Spot:

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.

The Food:

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.

The Damage:

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.
