Butcher and Banker NYC
Butcher & Banker is no ordinary steakhouse. A dozen different steaks are on offer, but non-steak eaters will dine exceedingly well here.
Butcher & Banker pays homage to the New Yorker Hotel’s storied history. The New Yorker opened in 1930 at the height of the Great Depression as the then largest hotel in the city. It has attracted a who’s who of entertainers and dignitaries from around the world, including Muhammad Ali, JFK, Joan Crawford and Nikola Tesla.
Beneath the hotel, a bank vault and offices were occupied by the Manufacturers Trust Company until 1980. With the opening of Butcher & Banker, the public can see the vault for the first time in 37 years.

It was really wonderful! The food was amazing- huge servings!!
We attended Butcher and Banker to celebrate some accomplishments before the summer ends. When we arrived we were immediately seated and asked what type of water we wanted. We were given a few minutes to decide on drinks and then our food. After every course the plates and utensils were replaced. The food and service was nothing less than satisfactory. On top of it all the restaurant does live up to its name, you get quality steak and feel like you’re sitting inside of a real bank vault.
Great Setting in the basement with a Bank Vault. Food was very good with nice sized portions. Only complaint that bar was slow in making drinks but tht's excusable under the circumstances. Would go back next time have something at The Garden
Steak was great. Ambiance is good and quiet.
Best restaurant I’ve ever been to 5 out of 5 definitely recommend if you looking for a fancy delicious meal but it’s definitely pricey but worth it
Was a bit noisy in the vault but a good experience
Must eat spot in NYC - truly a unique experience
Amazing service! We brought our 10 year old with us and I was nervous that it may be a more mature ambiance, but it wasn’t and she loved the Mac and cheese ! The salmon was amazing, the cowboy ribeye was amazing and the waiter was great. Great for date night and family night!
Celebrated our wedding anniversary and they provided complementary glasses of champagne which was a great start to our meal.
Calamari and short rib mini tacos to start and both were very good. The complimentary bread was so delicious!
I was so full from the starters that I only finished with a salad and my husband got the filet and asparagus and crab - all were very delicious
Dinner was excellent. Staff was friendly and professional.
Went for my mother’s 50th birthday, had the best time! Food was amazing and service was even better!
Great experience. We were so satisfied with the service and food. Will be back.
Third time here great every time , will be back again
Great aesthetic..and the Food was amazing from starters to dessert
Everything was Amazing, The food the service the ambiance!!!!
I will be back
We had a very good dinner, Food was delicious. The place is small but very nice . The only thing I didn’t like is that it is located in a touristy area.
The service was great, the food was good, didn’t try any steaks but the appetizers were great and they make a wonderful Sidecar!
Food was meh
Attentive service- not rushed - excellent meal! We had NY Strip - it was perfectly seasoned and seared medium rare. Wedge salad was delicious with real bacon bits and chunks of roquefort cheese and large enough to share. Great wine selection too!
The food was great and so was the service the host could have been a little more welcoming but overall great restaurant would recommend and go back
Great restaurant with exceptional service. Highly recommend!
Beautiful restaurant hands down best restaurant in nyc
The food was insane and the perfect place to go on a date!
I took my husband for his birthday and he absolutely LOVED it. The ambiance was amazing and the food was spectacular. We would definitely be visiting again.
This place is definitely a steak house, keep that in mind before entering. As is to say the sides are generic. Presentation/ customer service PHENOMENAL, Drinks TOP tier. The drinks menu caters to accompany your meat platter. Desserts are excellent one of the best cheese cakes I have EVER had. Excellent place to have an intimate gathering. Ps. Rustic aesthetic feels like your transported to a mafia boss movie. My husband and I came to this location on his 30th Birthday. We loved the ambiance music was classical and complemented the scene. My husband is a meat lover and loved the steak stated that it came close to Ruth Chris’s! I am a Vegetarian and had a great selection of sides to build a meal.
10/10 would recommend! Remember when in a steak house have the STEAK (can can pork looked pretty was very dry)
I had an amazing birthday dinner and the food was delicious! Steak was super juicy i really enjoyed it.
It was my partner’s birthday. She loves this place and it was a great evening.
Had a cousin date and it was our first time here. Ray was fabulous! Eating in the vault is an experience all in it's self. We will definitely be back.
Certainly a great look of an old bank but there was no real ambiance. The other patron did not enhance but lowered its ambiance. The food was average perhaps thus is what doesn’t attract much people.
Found this place on Open table while visiting New York. It was a Thursday night and very quiet. The food and service was great! Felt bad that they weren't busier. Not sure about the area. Across the street from Madison Square gardens. Inside a hotel. Might be hard for someone to find.
Well prepared standard NYC steakhouse fare. Great service and environment. Perfect for a pre-Madison Square Garden event. Price is reasonable for mid-town Manhattan.
Old school New York restaurant in romantic ambiance setting. Food was good, though we did not order steak, -- we went for seafood, fish and veggies. Service was attentive. Substantial wine list.
Our dinner at Butcher and Banker could not have been better. We were guests at the New Yorker Hotel inside the same building, and we’re excited to hear that a restaurant located inside an old vault existed. We are so glad we chose to check it out.
The food was phenomenal. We enjoyed the Cowboy Bone-in Rib Eye and the New York Strip steak. The Cowboy bone in...OMG. so flavorful, tender, peppery, just perfect. We shared mashed potatoes and mushrooms as sides, both fantastic. The drinks were expertly made, I loved the Tequila Daisy.
We also tried the calamari order to start, I loved the curry salt and wasabi aioli that was paired with them.
But the most important thing, was the service. Our server Miguel was WONDERFUL. We don’t dine out at “nice” places often, but it was so amazing to have someone carefully explain the differences in each item. You’re lucky if you have him as your guide.
The price was unbelievable for the amount of food we had, and the amount of food left over! They also were kind enough to include a delightful slice of chocolate cake for our birthdays. Do make an effort to stop by and take pictures in this charming restaurant!
I couldn’t give B&B a higher review. The service and food was incredible. If you’re visiting NYC, you need to eat here!
Food was great cool decor and service outstanding
Our server was very polite and informative of all menu items
I took my mother for Mother's Day and the restaurant was exceptional. She and I enjoyed it, from the ambiance, the food and the beautiful Vault to take pictures. I highly recommend bringing someone special here to enjoy a lovely time.
Service was on point! Food was delicious, especially the bacon. Cocktails are amazing, flavor and presentation are perfect. Experience overall was outstanding! Highly recommend it!
This restaurant is at vault level and we were seated right in the vault! Quite cool even though in NYC, this is not the only restaurant in a vault, I still enjoy it. The deco was nice too, very retro. We decide to order the Townhwak ribsteak so we only get ice wedge salad. It was the perfect combination for us. I have had many porter house but the rib steak, naturally in a different cut, pleasantly surprised me of its great quality. It was also grilled perfectly and we enjoy every bite. They have a good collection of scotch so I decide to get their scotch cocktail instead of wine. I would definitely recommend it and it goes very well with the meal. I would add this place to my steakhouse collection now.
Food was good. Not the best steakhouse in NYC. Best part is sitting inside a vault. Had the porterhouse and Bacon appetizer. Service was good.
