55 & 5th
Check out the brand new look. In the last year, this upscale eatery has undergone a facelift to bring the much-loved Manhattan-style grill and lounge up to date. Complete with an outdoor terrace, private dining room and cellar, gleaming chandeliers hang from high ceilings over luxurious leather seats, tables are draped with crisp white linen and the floors are a glossy black, to deliver striking visuals that are sure to impress.
It’s not all about the steak. Yes, if you’re looking for premium beef cuts, the black onyx tenderloin cooked in a Josper oven is a carnivore’s dream. However, the menu is also packed with chicken, lamb, lobster and fish, so there’s something for everyone.
Don’t scrimp on the sides! This is not the time to think of your diet. Some of the delicious items to pair your meal with include truffle hash browns and a prawn mac and cheese, so go all-out, or see it as a huge culinary opportunity missed!
Bring the kids. It’s super posh, so you might not want to, but for a special family occasion, it’s nice to have the option. The menu for little ones includes Wagyu beef sliders and their own smaller version of a steak dinner, for smiles all round.
Try the Tonka millefeuille for dessert. A light tonka bean cream delivers a spin on the vanilla version that’s the sandwiched between layers of caramelised puff pastry and served with an apple and granola ice cream for the sweetest end to a heavenly meal.
