One restaurant that we didn’t have time to try in 2012 was Strip House on 12th Street. This year we found they have a second restaurant in Mid Town, where we were staying so we decided to go there for dinner.
Strip House Midtown is a large restaurant and bar spread over 2 floors. Rich siren red walls adorned with original Studio Manasse prints of 1930’s burlesque performers and decor that combines old world glamour with modern style and sophistication. The large crystal chandeliers are quite amazing.
We decided to sit upstairs and had a great waiter named Ray. Something about him reminded me of a young Sinatra, he seriously would have fit in with the Rat Pack. Our table overlooked the ground floor so we had a great view of what was happening down there.

I loved the little covers for the butters:
A shot of Gazpacho for our amuse:
Being a fan of Surf and Turf Mr. CA4G couldn’t resist choosing it, along with Striphouse Steak Sauce. The prawn was the largest we have ever seen, almost the size of a marron, the steak was a classic fillet.
I went for the Kobe striploin with caramelised soy, yuzu and radish salad. The caramelised soy was very good, sweet and salty, the salad of radishes and yuzu really cut through that saltiness. We added a side of garlic and herb chips to go with our steaks.
Of course you can’t visit New York without having a New York Cheesecake. This was a huge slice of cheesecake and we were so glad to share it. Served simply with a berry coulis.
After dinner we had to have a big walk to work off soem of the great food. We were very happy to be able to dine at Striphouse this year and look forward to going again next time we are in Manhattan.
