The Dylan Hotel is a Beef-Lovers Paradise – Benjamin Steakhouse In The Heart Of Midtown
Benjamin Steak House, located at the Dylan Hotel in the heart of Midtown, creates a Manhattan Mecca for steak-connoisseurs. The elegant restaurant boasts an expansive a la carte menu, a wide array of fine international pairing wines, and a stylish decor that sets it apart from all other steak houses.
Chef Arturo McLeod, partner of Benjamin’s, has spent more than 30 years in the meat preparation business. The former 20-year veteran of Peter Luger’s brings his experience with a new flare to Midtown.
Benjamin offers what steakhouse lovers come to expect — the porterhouse (for 2- 4 guests), New York sirloin, veal chops, filet mignon, creamed spinach, fresh jumbo-sized lobster and the like. Chef Arturo has also introduced signature dishes including German soup (comprised of potatoes, tomatoes, and meat); crab cakes; sizzling Canadian bacon; grilled yellow fin tuna and more. The extensive breakfast menu offers everything from organic, whole wheat pancakes and waffles to a classic NY strip steak and eggs.
Chef McLeod personally patrons New York’s top wholesale meat markets to carefully select prime USDA meat to ensure the highest standards. Everything is taken into consideration – the right shade of color, balance of texture and the amount of marbling. More importantly, the meat is then brought back to the restaurant where it is dry-aged in their custom aging box.
Benjamin defines modern elegance with its 5,000 square foot multi-level space designed by M. Castedo Architects that can accommodate 175 patrons. The main dining room provides a comfortable setting for business meetings, romantic meals and family outings alike. It features a beautiful working fireplace, rich chocolate-brown leather seating, oak wood paneling, vaulted decorative ceiling, and modern brass amber-toned chandeliers.
To complete the full dining experience, Benjamin offers an extensive selection of fine wines to fit any budget – from modest California reds to rare and celebratory bottles including a 1946 bottle of Chateau Latour, Pauillac. Rounding off the meal is a sweet tooth’s dream – a heaping bowl of fresh homemade whipped shlag nicely accompanies the chocolate mousse cake, pecan pie or apple strudle.
Benjamin Steak House is open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant features full bars on two levels, and offers private room and party menus. For complete menus, photo gallery and more, visit www.benjaminsteakhouse.com
