Guam Diner Bytes: Manhattan - The NYC Steakhouse
When it comes to “fine dining” in the Steakhouse category, no one has a better handle on this than Manhattan - The New York City Steakhouse. I wanted to share with you just a taste of some what they have waiting for you.
Our party of four started off with one of the Manhattan’s specialties, the Seafood Market, which for $65 is more than enough for four. This features an awesome array of seafood featuring Cajun Crab cakes, seared tuna, homemade gravlax, giant shrimp and Oysters Rockefeller, which are prepared to perfection.
Another item I had was the Five Onion Soup ($12). This traditional style French onion soup is made with yellow and red onions, leeks, shallots and garlic, and is garnished with gruyere cheese. It’s a real treat to be able to sit down to a white tablecloth covered table and really savor the layered onion nuances in this classic French soup, which is so good that it’s really hard to take a break from eating it!
For this write-up though, I have to lay down the ultimate challenge to anyone who can do a prime Rib (16 oz for $40) to match the bone-In cut that I had placed in front of me. It was such a large piece of meat that’s cooked rare (I like my meat medium rare) and there was so much of this that I had leftovers for two days! Certified Angus Beef is the distinguishing baseline, especially when exceptionally seasoned.
