Comfort Zone
    
   
Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C. is not your typical celebrity-named steakhouse. There’s no beer spilling on the bar, no basketball hoops, and no raucous sports bar atmosphere. If the game happens to be playing, it will be featured only on the one television at the back of the bar. It doesn’t interfere with your dining experience. This restaurant is simply an elegant, fashionable setting in a landmark space -- with cuisine to match. If you’d like to know a little more about what to expect, how to dress and where to get the best seat before you arrive, please read on.

Reservations
Reservations are strongly recommended, if not required, and can be made by clicking the “Make a reservation link” above, or by phoning the restaurant directly.

Seating
Seating is more than comfortable at Michael Jordan's. Armless cordovan-embossed leather chairs with chenille piping decorate the cocktail area along with a fanciful patterned, chenille-backed banquette with similar leather seating. The same freestanding chairs decorate the main dining area while large armless cordovan leather chairs with dark piping, wooden legs and brass decoration await at the bar. Leather chairs with upholstered backs adorn the table in one private dining room while the other private dining room has leather chairs decorated with upholstery tacks. You can’t get an uncomfortable seat, because most of the chairs are 19 inches at their maximum width. Tables are 36 inches square and more than generously spaced throughout the dining areas.

Atmosphere

Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C. is not your ordinary sports legend's restaurant. The cuisine, ambiance and service all stand on their own. Surprisingly, the noise level at Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C. is not what you expect, either; in fact, conversations here are easy to have. The dramatic ceilings and decor of the terminal add to the special ambiance in this David Rockwell-designed restaurant. There is no bad table to be had. For more casual dining, try the cocktail room; for more of a refined feel, try the dining room; or if you want complete privacy, try one of the restaurant's two private dining rooms (our favorite was Michael’s Dining Room, right off the main dining room). Or, if you are an oenophile, try the Wine Salon; although it's not completely private, it offers a view of some of the extensive wine selections the restaurant is known for. Service is seamless; our server, Milton, could not have been more knowledgeable, nice or perfect. Ask for him if you get a chance, as he knows all the ins and outs of the restaurant and its menu. The manager, Ken, has a wonderful sense of humor and keeps the ship running tightly.

Restrooms

Three unisex restrooms have same-level access as the main dining area and are behind the main dining room.

Because it's situated in Grand Central Terminal, this restaurant is incredibly convenient thanks to all the subways and trains that pass through the terminal. Alternately, the restaurant is easily accessible by taxi, bus and car. The nearest pay garage is Edison Park Fast’s Grand Central Garage, which is located on East 44th Street between Madison Avenue and Vanderbilt Avenue.

Awards
