    Michael Jordan

Number 23, Michael Jordan, was no ordinary basketball player. With two Olympic Gold Medals, he is a six-time NBA Champion, a six-time NBA Finals MVP and a five-time NBA MVP. Of course, Jordan is no ordinary businessman, either. As one of the most marketed sports figures in history, his annual endorsements are estimated to pull in $40 million. He’s been a major spokesman for such brands as Ball Park Franks, Chevrolet, Coca-Cola, Gatorade, Hanes, McDonald's, MCI, Nike, Rayovac and Wheaties. Ultimately, Jordan added steakhouse to his repertoire. And if you think his is your typical “sports memorabilia-filled” restaurant, think again. Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C. reflects Michael’s refined taste and elegance. Sports is not spoken here, unless it's in conversations at your table. Instead, this restaurant is more about fine cuisine, stylish decor and a sophisticated atmosphere.


A restaurant in Grand Central Terminal must be dark, dingy and loud, right? Wrong on all counts. Dark? Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C. has some of the most spectacular lighting in New York City thanks to skylights and arched windows throughout the main terminal, which let in plenty of natural light. Dingy? Grand Central Terminal received an entire overhaul in 1996 and is spectacularly taken care of due to its status as a national landmark. Rather than dingy, it's delightful. From here you can see everything: the opal clock above the information booth, the people scurrying for their trains and your favorite constellation in the meticulously restored celestial ceiling overhead. Loud? Absolutely not! No music plays at Michael Jordan’s (except in the wine salon, if you so desire), as the entertainment is the actual hustle and bustle of the terminal. Designed with the glamorous train travel of the early 1900s in mind, what better entertainment is there than watching travelers as their lives cross when passing each other in the terminal? The noise is almost like white noise, and surprisingly enough it creates an ideal backdrop for conversation in the center of the terminal, making it the perfect “special occasion” restaurant. Now, onto the service: It's impeccable and very professional. Service is seamless, as servers are always there and aware but never intrusive. This isn't the restaurant you'd expect, based on the fact that a sports figure's name is attached to it. It's so much more. With the beautiful view of the terminal, the impeccable service and delicious cuisine, Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C. can be a go-to place for a business lunch, a special occasion or simply an evening of relaxation with memories of an earlier time.
