Our first dinner was at a LA steak house, which has its first location in NYC. NYC is a different animal than LA so we went into the dinner with some hesitation wondering if they could hold up the standards we New Yorkers demand. That being said upon our arrival we were pleased with the atmosphere in the steakhouse. This was the first steakhouse that any of us have seen to have a live band, which was surprisingly good; we loved the cocktail menu at the bar and eagerly awaiting our feast.
We all shared a seafood tower with oysters, clams and the biggest crab claw we have seen. All food was excellent and well presented.
Everyone at the table chose the 59 oz. NY Strip. This was an impressive cut of meat, which was enjoyed by each member. No negative comments about this cut. Actually the table stated that Mastro’s is here to stay. The rest of the meat menu had various cuts of filet (with and without the bone) and porterhouse.
The sides were equally good, with a standout of lobster mashed potatoes.
The waiter had suggested the butter pie, which was shared by all and not a crumb left. (Highly recommended).
The staff and our waiter were attentive and just about perfect. Our waiter presented us with a candle on our dessert plate as a welcoming to our first SteakBoyz night.
This place was highly rated with the exception of value. This might be the most expensive place we will visit this year, so it scored low on Value.
