Meticulously designed, deliciously authentic, stateside steakhouse in downtown Saigon.
The New York Steakhouse on Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street has been meticulously designed to transport you to downtown Manhattan. From the covered walkway that leads you off the sidewalk, to the scarlet leather upholstery and banquet booth-style seating, the New York Steakhouse is buzzing with downtown cool. Every last detail has been carefully considered to ensure you get a first class dining experience. The bespoke breadboards on which the home-made chicken liver pate and roasted garlic are delivered, were made especially for the restaurant. The retro clock that hangs above the bar was specially modified to tell the time backwards transporting you back in time. And just before your steak arrives, you’re presented with a knife box, a red leather-bound case of steak knives, so you can choose a tool to suit your steak.
The menu, unsurprisingly is steak-centric. To ensure consistency of quality, all the steaks are imported from top suppliers in the US, and given that they have flown half way round the world, they’re very reasonably priced. Once at the restaurant, they’re aged by the chef and his team. You can choose between sirloin, rib-eye and fillet or for two of you, go for a chateaubriand or porterhouse. To go alongside, there’s a range of delicious sides, some traditional – creamed truffled spinach, fries – some more adventurous – sautéed corn and bacon.
All are served alongside a novel selection of homemade flavoured salts, a great choice of dijons and sauces. After dinner, you can retire to the bar to take advantage of the extensive wine list. Proud owners of an enomatic wine chamber, the New York Steakhouse is one of the few restaurants in Saigon that will serve premier wines by the glass. Finish off the evening with one of the delicious deserts, such as crepe suzette, flambé at the table, or for the full on American experience, homemade apple pie and ice cream.
