Veterans from Strip House, Ben & Jack’s and others are opening this 130-seat homage to meat and seafood. The beef is aged in-house on Himalayan salt blocks for 35 days and is offered in eight- to 76-ounce portions on the classic New York steakhouse menu.
Come for the steak, stay for the hospitality. At Royal 35, a sophisticated new chophouse in Midtown, you’ll be treated like royalty. The customer service was just as good as the juicy double porterhouse for two dry-aged in-house for 35 days in Himalayan salt.
The classic steakhouse features a mahogany walled dining room with dark leather banquets
and an upper level private dining room that overlooks the ground floor.
Big rooms of dry-aged beef. Seafood towers that are less towers than landscapes full of oysters, shrimp and lobster that all look like they were alive very recently. More proof that bacon is on its way back to ubiquity, maybe in a classier way this time around.
