Upper East Side hotspot T-Bar Steak & Lounge, which has been warmly embraced by New Yorkers since it first opened its doors in 2007, is noted for its perfect execution of classic dishes. The restaurant’s Executive Chef Ben Zwicker, previously of the Four Seasons, Aureole and Petrossian, makes T-Bar’s classic steakhouse fare relevant and exciting, while also putting his unique twist onto other classic dishes.
Owned by veteran restaurateur Tony Fortuna, T-Bar is a well-loved mainstay, still buzzing with its loyal following night after night. Fortuna says there is no magic formula to achieve this sort of long-running success. “I think guests trust our kitchen and love our relaxed but vibrant atmosphere.”
Diners are able to begin a meal at T-Bar with its unique spin on chicken wings Angel Chicken Wings with a Tamarind Glaze, or enjoy its classic take on Guacamole to split with the table. T-Bar also redefines the classic Kale Salad by including apple and sesame into it while drizzling it in a sumptuous chili-lime vinaigrette. Also available on its delectable appetizer menu are the popular Seared Spanish Octopus, Yellowfin Tuna Tartar, and Vietnamese Shrimp Roll.
A meal at T-Bar Steak & Lounge would not be complete without ordering a favorite from The Steak Bar, which features an impressive range of superbly-cooked certified Black Angus cuts of beef including its Black Angus Porterhouse for two served with your choice of Steak Sauce, Béarnaise Sauce or Poivre Sauce. T-Bar offers wealth of additional American classics including its signature Crusted Tuna served with soy, wasabi rémoulade and seaweed salad or its Roast Free Range Chicken with truffle jus.
Cap the evening off with irresistible desserts like the must-have Banana Parfait Mille Feuilles, with coconut and caramel sauce or the decadent Chocolate Sundae served with brownie, chocolate sauce and cream.
A classically-chic Upper East Side eatery, T-Bar Steak and Lounge offers outstanding cuisine in a casual yet elegant space. Under the watchful eye of restaurateur Tony Fortuna and Executive Chef Ben Zwicker, T-Bar is a new spin on the classic upscale steak house. The menu features a wide range of dishes, ranging from well-cooked renditions of classics, to refined and inventive plates, providing the ultimate dining experience.
Open for lunch Monday through Friday, brunch Saturday and Sunday, and every night for dinner, T-Bar serves prime beef steaks, as well as a mélange of grilled fish, chopped salads, burgers and pastas. A long list of perfectly-prepared side dishes, like the Sautéed Haricot Verts with garlic, or the Roasted Brussel Sprouts with shallots, complement each entrée on the menu. Chef Zwicker, who has worked at other prestigious kitchens including Four Seasons, Aureole, and Petrossian, has crafted a decadent desert menu, including the popular Banana Parfait Mille Feuilles with coconut and caramel sauce. The specialty cocktails, made quickly and consistently, are expertly crafted and presented, and the wine list is both extensive and thoughtful.
