Snow gridlocked central Manhattan. And so we cancelled our dinner reservation and wandered across the street to Benjamin’s. For a Brit like me it was the eponymous NY steakhouse: wood panelling, efficient service, wine overflowing and a buzz of good company. And oh there were...More

If you want a place that is a bit different for breakfast this is one of them. It is a business spot and at our time of the morning it was quiet. The Eggs Benedict was nice with a great salad

Hi, Thanks for a great review on two of our review sites! Did you know that we also have a Breakfast Prix-Fixe menu? It is the perfect, affordable option for a quick bite if you happen to be on a time crunch.

The steak just wasn't that good. The roasted potatoes either. i ordered the bone-in rib steak. First, I was shocked that it was only 3/4" thick. I expected at least 1.5" or more for the $56 price. It was decent but I make them much...More
