Strip House: The Seductive New York Steakhouse
Strip House, the famed New York steakhouse that opened in 2000 on East 12th Street just off of Fifth Avenue, is a nominee for a Luxist Award for Best Steakhouse.
The restaurant's name is a double entendre that relates to both the delectable strip steaks as well as its seductive, yet sophisticated decor. The interior was designed by David Rockwell and offers a clubby yet striking atmosphere with deep red leather booths. The walls are adorned with black and white images of women that pays homage to the female form. The collection was photographed by Studio Manasse in Vienna in the early 1900's.
Executive Chef John Schenk is renowned for his culinary skills and is often seen on The Today Show among other national news programs. The menu, which Schenk keeps fresh, features select cuts of beef that are charred to perfection accompanied by decadent sides, an extensive wine list and delectable desserts. Be sure to try Strip House's signature New York Strip Steak accompanied by the delicious creamed spinach with black truffles followed up by its famous 24-layer chocolate cake.
