Empire Steak House

Owners: Jack, Jeff, Russ Sinanaj


What you need to know: The Sinanaj Brothers dream began during their younger years. They wanted to create a restaurant offering the finest cuts of steaks, the freshest seafood and the best selection of wine where people would gather for exceptional service, in a beautiful surrounding that made you feel at home. This journey has been a 25 year passage. After working at Peter Luger Steakhouse in Brooklyn for over a combined 2 decades, they realized they were finally ready for their dream to come into fruition. The first chapter of their would-be success began with the opening of Empire Steak House in 2010, and their second location in midtown east in 2016. Besides serving their famous USDA Prime Dry-Aged Porterhouse (for two, three, or four) you will find some of the most incredible seafood, poultry, and pasta dishes. Our wine list consists of over 400 selections where you can find some of the best wines from around the world as well as a Single Malt Scotch list with over 100 selections to accommodate each and every dish.
