Description: Established in 2008. Bruno Selimaj was born and raised in a small village on the Northern Albanian/Montenegrin border and began his life as simple farmer. But at the tender age of 18 and with his parents blessing, he embarked on a journey to America in search of new life. In an Albanian household, it is tradition that a guest is treated with the utmost respect and as a member of the family. Bruno brought these core family values to his restaurant and Bruno Selimaj's life defines true restaurant hospitality. In December 2007, Bruno closed his legendary restaurant after 30 years with a new idea and a continuing passion to strive to be the best. He re-opened his famed restaurant as Club A, a modern American steakhouse in the same location. His new venture manages to encompass the characteristics of a traditional steakhouse and new world modernism. His latest accomplishment has established Bruno as one of New York's legendary restaurateurs.

Such a cozy and heartwarming restaurant with very professional waiters and bartenders.
We shared a porterhouse, wich was cooked perfectly. The best most delicious piece of meat i have ever tasted. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, who took his time to check up on his guest, checking that everyone was happy and satisfied. Everyone should have the chance to visit this place. It is outstanding!
We are defiantly coming back!

I wanted to take my wife and two daughters to a New York steakhouse and, based on Tripadvisor reviews, I chose club A. It was excellent with great fine dining decor, attentive and friendly staff (the owner, Bruno, visited the table on a number of occasions) and the steaks were wonderful. All in all a memorable last night in New York. Many thanks to Bruno and the team.

Went there with a friend 2 weeks ago.
The welcome was friendly and professional.
They gave us the table in front of the bow window that overlooks the street.
We had a delicious onion soup, the best Filet Mignon ever eaten in my life, the perfect mushed potatoes. They offered us a big plate of fruits and a delicious home made dessert.
The service was perfect and the general manager Bruno Selimaj is truly a gentleman, professional and "clear like the water"!
I will return very soon.
Thanks again for every attention given to us.

In New York for my birthday and i get invited to Club A....Where do i start,well is this such a fantastic looking place,i'd looked at It before I went. Now let me say one thing the Americans don’t dress for dinner. I packed some nice evening wear for this place and they let people in that would have looked at home in some fast food place. Putting all that aside, what a remarkable place. The décor is fantastic, honestly, truly swarv or posh as we would say. The food and service was of the highest quality imaginable. A great wine list was also on offer. This is one for a special occasion ‘Steak to Die For’
There are certain things you know your go do and see when you get to New York. add this place to that list.
