The landmark Smith & Wollensky in New York City is located on the corner of Third Avenue and 49th Street, where Chef Victor Chavez creates outstanding steakhouse fare, featuring USDA Prime steaks, dry aged and hand butchered on-premises.
Opened in 1977, the original Smith & Wollensky has set the standard by which all other steakhouses are judged. The New
York Times agrees, calling the restaurant “a steakhouse to end all arguments” and Gourmet Magazine said this is the “quintessential New York steakhouse.” Although Smith & Wollensky has earned its reputation as the quintessential American steakhouse, the menu is varied and offers many options beyond the signature exemplary steaks. Guests can also select from a variety of market-fresh seafood, poultry, and lamb. Delicious side dishes complete the Smith & Wollensky meal, such as creamed spinach, hashed browns, and seasonal vegetables. The irresistible dessert selection ends the meal on a memorable note.
- The Restaurant Writes...
One of America's most successful restaurants, this New York steakhouse opened in 1977 and has been a hit ever since.
It is one of the most trafficked restaurants in New York City and among the most celebrated steakhouses in the world. Specializing in fresh seafood and lobster and assorted steaks and chops, Smith & Wollensky is well recognized for its healthy portions, seasoned service staff and pop Americana ambience.
The painted wood exterior is dark forest green trim on sparkling white, with latticework trim. The elegant interior has turn-of-the-century appeal and design elements including shining brass, dark wood accents and polished wood floors.
Adjacent to Smith & Wollensky's is Wollensky's Grill. The Grill (entrance on 49th St) is open from 11:30AM till 2:00AM but does not accept reservations.
