Great Steaks, Celebrity Diners, and a Touch of History. That’s Gallagher’s. The most casual of New York steak houses, with its checkered tablecloths and photos of sports greats on the walls, Gallagher’s makes no pretensions. From the moment you walk through the door, time stands still and customers are pampered and the food improves with each visit.
For starters, there is a first rate shrimp cocktail (or split the smallest lobster, which start at two pounds). You won’t be disappointed with the famous dry-aged steaks (especially the melt-in-your-mouth Sirloin);.The Roast Beef is the best in town. All potato dishes and the fabulous onion rings are recommended.
Vegetables, whether steamed or creamed, are terrific and the wine selection is easily accessed and affordable, with an abundant selection available by the glass.(There is an excellent choice of single malts). You won’t complain about the Rice Pudding, creamy Cheesecake or wonderful Key Lime Pie. Add the easy-going service and you’ll agree that Gallagher’s is a heavy-hitter in the steak house league.
