Ben & Jack’s Steakhouse on 5th ave is a richly wood paneled traditional Steakhouse that was started by a group of waiters from famed Peter Luger’s Steakhouse. With The logo “Experience a Steakhouse like no other” puts pressure to deliver a unique and satisfying experience for the guests.
A large space in the heart of midtown Ben & Jacks is know for hosting many private and corporate functions upstairs as well as charity benefits to give back to the community. A family business with a rich history and a desire to deliver top quality food and service.
Meats are the specialty here and quality “Prime” cuts are grilled to perfection using very little seasoning to not take away from the natural flavor of the aged meats. We started our meal off with a very fresh yellowfin tuna tartare and baked clams. Followed by a rich and cheesy french onion soup, a must try. For the seafood lover Seafood platters are available and can be customized to include shrimp, lobster, crab, oysters, clams and more…
For the entree we chose the Surf & Turf. The lobster tail was huge and the filet mignon, medium rare, was tender and full of flavor. My companion also had the lobster but chose to try the 12oz Sirloin instead and was very satisfied with the steak. The restaurant specializes in Porterhouse steaks that can be served for 2 to 4 people.
As a side dish the Lobster Mac’ Cheese is highly recommended, made with quality cheese and chunks of lobster. Sautéed Spinach adds a little “green” and healthiness to the meal.
Dessert was a creamy creme brûlée and a traditional tiramisu accompanied by freshly brewed coffee and a dessert wine. An extensive wine and cocktail list is available and wine pairings are suggested by the experienced waitstaff.
Ben & Jack’s serves lunch and dinner daily and private rooms are available for corporate functions, rehearsal dinners, bachelor/bachelorette parties, holiday parties and more…
