How's Michael Jordan's?

marls Nov 9, 2008 06:06 AM

I've got a cousin and Aunt from Rome who will be in NYC in December. A group of us will be meeting them for lunch (or possibly dinner) on a Saturday in the midtown-ish area. We want a good restaurant in an interesting location and have sort of settled on Michael Jordan's. I know it's not a top NYC culinary spot, but it seems to get fairly solid recommendations and the dramatic location is an extra benefit. Comments would be appreciated!

    Pretty good steaks. Not the best in NYC but towards the top, esp. the ribeye. During lunch they have a great burger, very underrated. Mac and cheese is a pretty good side too. Plus you have the location right in Grand Central.

      as previously said, not the best but very solid. great service, good value for a steakhouse lunch, and an amazing view. everything is solid but i particularly like the filet and the mac and cheese.

        I love their creamed spinach, best I've ever had in a restaurant. And the view.......

            You will not be disappointed if your expectations are realistic. You will however have a very good steak, great atmosphere and excellent sides.
            Go with the ribeye
