I was recently in NYC for company travel. I’ve been there several times before and it is not a place I necessarily associate with steak in terms of food. I think of Chinese food, pizza, hot dogs, fresh produce, Italian, and others. However on this trip my team mates really wanted to go to a steak house. They started calling up famous ones only to find our that reservations need to be made way in advance. Finally we found one in the basement of the New Yorker hotel. It was called Butchers and Bankers because it was in a former old bank. Some of the tables were in the former vault. Even though it was fabulous, it was more than I’ve ever paid for a steak. I ordered the NY Strip and we ordered a side of Cauliflower and a side of Mushrooms.
