When people visit from Europe, I always suggest to go for steaks, a suggestion rarely discarded unless people are vegetarian or...told all steaks in the US are full of hormones! So, as we had to plan a dinner with my brother and nephew, I was looking for a steakhouse with a great setting and decided to go to Michael Jordan's Steakhouse in Grand Central Station, combining the eating with sightseeing.

This place is amazing and I am really surprised that they are not packed. First, the view from the dining room of the main hall is incredible. Then the food is sublime, not cheap for sure, like most steakhouses, but not pricier as you would think that one would pay for the view. Our dinner was fantastic from A to Z, with delicious steaks that make my mouth water just thinking about it: nicely charred, tender, juicy and perfectly cooked. So, here is what I got to try:

They have cocktails and a good selection of wine, and I was set to get an Old Fashioned, made with Bulleit Bourbon. Very good, they gracefully offered me a second one after I mentioned to them that there was a little piece of plastic in my glass, probably dropped unintentionally by the bartender when opening a bottle.

Instead of the usual bread basket, they brought us some garlic bread, also very good.

As an appetizer, we decided to share the maple glazed bacon: I was so happy to have people ready to share that dish as Jodi does not like it, so I usually pass, the portion being usually generous unless they offer it by the slice. However, at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse, they serve it with three slices of bacon and a wedge salad, a dish I see myself eating alone. It was superb: the smokiness of the bacon pairing perfectly with the blue cheese.

Then we got our steaks: tomahawk for my nephew and I, filet mignon for Jodi and NY Strip for my brother. As I mentioned before, all these steaks were perfect, but my favorite was definitely the tomahawk that was succulent, deliciously fatty. But I admit that when they told me it was 40 ounces, I was expecting more. Well it is just that the large bone accounts for probably 10 to 12 ounces already and I was worried I had to fight my nephew who has a big appetite...

As sides, we decided to share their wild mushrooms, black truffle creamed spinach (at least some vegetables) and some amazing mac and cheese that had lots of cheese for sure.

Last was dessert: we tried the butter pecan ice cream, lemon sorbet and banana tart, all very good, although the tart, with its caramelized bananas was terrific.
