Beneath the pulsing city lies a hidden dining destination. Steaks from the finest Black Angus cattle. Bespoke cocktails. A restored Bank Vault from the 1930s. This is Butcher & Banker. New York’s Most Unique Steakhouse at the crossroads of Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, Javits Center and Hudson Yards. Under the culinary leadership of Executive Chef Scott Campbell, Butcher & Banker is no ordinary steakhouse. Seasonal ingredients and unique flavor combinations showcase the kitchen’s creativity. A dozen different steaks are on offer, but non-steak eaters will dine exceedingly well here.

I wanted to like this place but did not. The decor is nice. I went early evening with my 6yo daughter, and it seemed as soon as they saw her, it seemed as though they wished we were not there. It took over 15 minutes...More

This restaurant was below our hotel (The New Yorker at Wyndham). The history of it- you’re literally eating in a former bank and can even eat in the vault. This is all underground! The food was delicious. Atmosphere- one of kind!

A steakhouse in an old bank vault with good food, good service but almost $200 for 2 persons is simply too much.

We visited here on the11th August 2019. Had a porterhouse between us. It was delicious and the vault was very interesting. I do feel though that it was deserving more from the clientele as many were wearing casual dress not that I mind shorts etc...More

It’s a 15 minute walk from Time Square, absolutely pointless in getting a cab/taxi much quicker walking. Leave about 6.30 to allow yourself not to rush. Enjoy hope this helps ?
