Empire Steakhouse East

A grand chandelier and winding staircase makes Empire Steakhouse East feel like the dining of room of the Titanic - well, while it was still floating. Tucked into the Kimberly Hotel, the opulently appointed eatery was once an opera house in the 1920s, followed by the famed Versailles nightclub, but today you'll find it playing host to Midtown suits dropping major dough on plates of lobster and sirloin. For the very #extra among us, there's also a 24 karat gold American Wagyu Tomahawk that, as you would expect, is coated in gold leaf.
