Want a great steak as you can only have in NYC, head to Empire Steakhouse. Not only that, the side dishes are also top notch. I could have had three more servings of the creamed spinach and hash browns.

The food is really good. A lovely restaurant and the staff were so nice. Great atmosphere and the Mac and cheese has a really neat truffle flavor. I recommend this restaurant highly. It will not disappoint is my opinion.
