Such is the case with the New York Steakhouse at the JW Marriott Bangkok. Around for two decades, this classy restaurant with its unique mood has certainly stood the test of the time. Its unchanging dark wood furniture, handsome oversized chairs and magical photos of American cities evoking images of a traditional Manhattan steakhouse remain as popular as when it first opened.
In Bangkok’s revolving door of restaurants, New York Steakhouse show it’s not always necessary to change the furniture or decoration to be loved.
Underneath it all, though, New York Steakhouse remains true to origins – a restaurant serving premium cuts of USDA certified, grain-fed meat from Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the US and cooked with care for absolute perfection. That’s not all, of course. Also served are some interesting local options and fresh seafood specialties.
One of the restaurant’s amazing Martinis is a great way to start a meal here. Then enjoy a big freshly baked bread presented in four different flavors, followed by a traditional appetizer or two like Clam Chowder, Shrimp Cocktail, House-smoked Salmon and Caesar Salad. Do try the Grilled Hokkaido Scallops served with a truffle sauce and the pan-fried Foie Gras with Port wine sauce. They’re outrageously delicious. Another must is the Baked US Lobster filled with mushrooms and cheese.
Now it’s time for the restaurant’s main attraction – its sensational steaks, all cooked to perfection and to your preference. The choice is a carnivore’s delight and includes US Prime Beef, Black Angus, Prime Porterhouse and Chateaubriand; Australian Wagyu grain-fed beef as Tenderloin, Striploin and Rib Eye; and Japanese Matsuzaka Beef Kagoshima NY Striploin. Alternatively, have a look at the trolley for beef of the day, and have it sliced the way you like it best.
For a table of three or four, order the 1kg Spice Rubbed Australia Tomahawk Wagyu Roast Beef. All kinds of side orders are available, including potatoes in four styles, baked cauliflower cheese, and steamed mushrooms and broccoli. If you need advice, the restaurant’s famously friendly and knowledgeable staff can help.
To complete this outstanding dining experience, don’t miss one of the utterly irresistible desserts: Baked Alaska flambe, Cheesecake, Key lime syrup pie, and heavenly ice cream from Café Buongiorno.
The wine list is long and impressive.
