New York Steak Dinner At Rosie O’Grady’s

They say the best place to get a New York steak is in New York, and one of the best steak houses in New York is Rosie O’Grady’s at 800 7th Ave. Family-owned and operated for over 30 years, Rosie O’Grady’s is centrally located near Times Square, Rockefeller Center, the Jacob Javits Convention Center, and a short distance from several major museums.

The restaurant has the look and feel of a classic New York steakhouse. The room features lots of deep colored wood, and the old bar is full of character. The place even has a sense of humor. Right at the entrance, there’s a sign that tells you the CPR kit is available at the front desk. Hopefully, you won’t eat a steak big enough to use it.

I went for the classic New York strip, grilled medium rare. It comes with a bake potato with sour cream and nothing else. O’Grady’s steaks are served À la carte, meaning any sides are extra (except for the potato).

I can see why there was a sign for a CPR kit after I saw the steak. The thing is huge! The menu said it was 14oz, but it looked much bigger than that. Consume the entire meal with the free bread, and you may need that CPR kit!

The steak was grilled perfectly and was very juicy. It wasn’t the most tender or flavorful steak I’ve ever had. That honor still belongs to Gotham Steakhouse. However, steaks at Rosie doesn’t cost as much as the USDA Prime steaks at Gotham. In terms of value for money, Rosie O’Grady’s is pretty hard to beat.

    LOL, we have Berns Steakhouse in Tampa that is one of the best I have ever had. They even have a separate floor that you go to for dessert.

    That steak looks a little burned to me…maybe it looks that way in the photo. :)

    1. MykeTech says:

      That’s what I thought at first, but I think it’s just the photo. The sauce on the steak could be dark as well.

    2. It looks like that when it is correct grilled.

    3. PPC Ian says:

      I like my steak well done, so looks very tasty to me. However, I did have the same reaction, does not look medium rare but could just be photo.

  3. Deals Attack says:

    i wouldn’t dare to comment but the display looks a bit dull to me and it seems kinda burnt.

    but if the taste is good hey why not since it is recommended by john.

    but i love a meal better if i can complete it with a nice dessert :)

      Steak is very tasty, one of my favorite dinners for special celebrations. However, don’t eat it too much on a day-to-day basis.

  6. Stocksicity says:

    I walked by there today. Walked from 10th avenue to 5th Avenue and passed right in front of it at one point (and all over Manhattan) earlier today.

  7. MykeTech says:

    Lol I just noticed the CPR kit – that would be funny to see them use it in on someone who choked up a steak.

  14. My favorite restaurant here in Spain is a small Spanish taverna/restaurant with a fabulous 400 gram = 14.1 ounces Entrecote with all the permissions for
    only 11 Euros = 15.6068 U.S. dollars. So how much did your steak cost??

  15. Hey John,

    The steak looks good and the location is well placed too for the visitors to the city.
