Bobby Vans is frequently associated with power lunches, men in suits and business deal meals. But the lively dinner crowd and festive décor make it a perfect place this time of year for a date, a holiday gathering with friends, or even a way to avoid slaving in the kitchen in Christmas Day. Also, the proximity to the Rockefeller Christmas Tree helps you make a night of those not-to-miss quintessential New York attractions.
With five locations throughout Manhattan, the West 50th Street Grill features a menu of traditional American fare, classic steakhouse cuts and wood-fired pizza. The elegantly styled restaurant features dark wood paneling, a warm color palette, sleek white linens and Alabaster Chandeliers imported from Spain. The sophisticated design creates the perfect backdrop to the sprawling 75 foot bar.
Of course at a steakhouse like this the Porterhouse Steak is the best dish to share between two, three or four steak lovers, but those looking to keep it a bit lighter can opt for the Chilean Sea Bass with Miso and Tamari glazed asparagus, Bok Choy and Shitake mushroom in white truffle fish broth, or the Cold Seafood Bouquet.
As for cocktails, get creative with the BV’s House Made Sangria made with seasonal fresh fruit or the perfect standby, the Bobby’s Bellini with Prosecco, St. Germain Elderflower, twist of lemon
You’ll find a huge power lunch crowd at all Bobby Van’s midtown locations so splurge for the porterhouse at lunch, or take advantage of the Prix Fixed Lunch Menu, Monday –Friday: 11:30am – 4:00pm which includes an appetizer, entrée and dessert for $29.95
