We had a wonderful meal and time at the Club 21. We sat at the same table that Bud Fox and Gordon Gecko sat at in the movie Wall Street. Same table that Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, sits at. Really fun looking at all the toys/gifts hanging from the ceiling. Our waiter, Phillip, was wonderful. He made feel right at home. The parsnip soup was amazing and my steak tartar was the best I have ever had. This meal was the final meal for our NY vacation and it was perfect!! More

This place is a hidden gym on restaurant row. The service was amazing and they were very attentive. The food was good and having a prefixed menu was delightful. I would say that the drinks are a little pricy but still good drinks none the less. Overall had a great time here with my boyfriend for his 25th birthday before seeing a broadway show! More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
