I've seen it mentioned here, and thought I would add my two cents...
I went to the New Yorker last week with a big group of business associates.
The place was definitely nice and the service was pretty good- given the size of our group.
The appetizers were pretty good. Buffalo Barbecue Shrimp and Crispy Fried Calamari, Shrimp and Artichokes. Avg. price: $10
The veal was very good. Tender. Just right.
But the Prime Ribeye Steak ($35) was awful. Dry and overcooked. Three of us ordered the ribeye- and all agreed that it was terrible. One person even sent it back.
The meal was, however, saved by the crab legs. This appears at the bottom of the menu: "Add One Pound King Crab Leg to any Steak" ($32)
There was more than enough crab to feed two people. And it was wonderful!
Given that this place calls itself a steakhouse- I was pretty disappointed.
Maybe they should be listed as a Crab Shack.
