Hunt & Fish Club NYC, which opened recently on 44th Street, takes the contemporary steakhouse to new heights of opulence. The space is packed with 55,000 pounds of marble, and mirrored ceilings sparkle with the reflections of hundreds of light bulbs from a 40 foot long light installation. Paintings by contemporary artist Roy Nachum are also displayed throughout the restaurant, which has a total of 180 seats spread across two floors. The bar and main dining room lie on the main floor, as well as a private dining atrium with a live ivy wall. Below, there's a cavernous basement lounge that could easily double as a night club. The various dining areas are named by color — black for the bar, white for the main dining room, green for the atrium, and blue for the basement lounge.
The executive chef is Jeff Kreisel, who worked under Michael Lomonaco at Porter House New York, so he has plenty of steakhouse experience. The menu contains the expected updates on chophouse classics, including an oxtail and bone marrow soup, and uni crab ponzu alongside dry aged prime steaks. The full menu is below. Hunt & Fish Club is open for dinner nightly and begins lunch service today.
