After the success of our first location on W. 52Nd St., We are proud to bring the Empire experience to a second location. Boasting a sleek, modern design with high ceilings and white marble bar, Empire Steak House on W. 54Th offers a comfortable, trendy experience, without forsaking the high-quality food and exceptional service that we are known for. At 4,500 square feet, it can easily accommodate 230 guests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as private events. Similar to our original location, our menu features our succulent signature Porterhouse for two, dry-aged for 21 to 28 days for optimal flavor. Other mouthwatering cuts are also certified USDA Prime and dry-aged. Delectable seafood is also available, including our buttery, melt-in-your mouth Chilean sea bass, salmon, and yellowfin tuna. Diners love our side dishes, from German potatoes to creamed spinach. They complement our meat and fish to a tee. The wine lists features more than 235 bottles, including sought-after California vintages.

Stopped in here after a Broadway show for a little late night dinner. Not being very hungry, we sat at the bar and had very good French onion soup and a crab cake with a glass of wine.

We couldn't wait to have a NYC fine dining experience at this restaurant. It has beautiful ambiance with dark wood and white linen napkins. I must say that the service was excellent and the servers very friendly and accommodating. The food was the only disappointment. It had a fine dining price, but I have had better food at a diner....

Everything was wonderful. The shrimp was crisp, lobster cooked perfectly and the chicken was superb. My only complaint was there was so much food I couldn't finish it all!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
