A Steakhouse to End All Steakhouses



For as long as I can remember, I have looked forward to my yearly visit to Mastro’s Steakhouse in Scottsdale, Arizona. When I learned that they had plans to open a location in New York City I was more than happy — I was elated. As a serious carnivore and self-proclaimed steak connoisseur, I think it’s safe to say I know a thing or two about red meat. Long ago I dubbed Mastro’s as my favorite restaurant of all time, so naturally, it’s expansion to New York City is a big deal.

The renowned steakhouse hosted their opening Tuesday evening at their impressive location on 52nd Street and 6th Avenue. The venue was packed to the brim, full of people wanting to get their hands on everything from their smoking cocktails to their out of this world raw bar. Even celebrities such as Ice-T and Coco, Jackie Cruz, Plaxico Buress, J.R. Smith, Lea DeLaria and Ramona Singer made their way to check out the new digs.


The two level restaurant features two bars, dark wood interior, and dim mood lighting. The restaurant is a great spot for a special occasion or a romantic date night, especially since they will have live music seven days a week. The dining experience at Mastro’s is truly incredible — starting with the bread basket, complete with their famous pretzel bread, and ending with dessert. While ordering up their flavorful and tender steak is a no brainer, don’t miss an opportunity to try some of their seafood, as well, which is incredibly fresh. In fact, Mastro’s might also be home to the best shrimp I’ve ever had. If you’re dining at Mastro’s, there’s no sense in skimping on any part of the menu, and that includes side dishes. They have potatoes served any way you can fathom, from scalloped to lobster mashed, as well as an array of other choices, such as creamed spinach, sauteed mushrooms and colossal onion rings. Make sure to end your evening with Mastro’s signature warm butter cake or you’ll really be missing out on something special. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, there’s a problem.
