Day 148—Sunday, June 6th, 2010
Old Homestead Steakhouse

Okay, last week I was interviewed by Frank Carmichael on his Happenings Q & A radio show on WLIP 1050 Radio out of Kenosha. It’s a fun and lively show and Frank is great interviewer. This was my third time on the show and it’s always a great time. During the interview Frank said that a recent guest of his was Greg Sherry who, along with his brother Marc, owns the Old Homestead Steakhouse in the Chelsea area of Manhattan. The reason Frank interviewed him is that the steakhouse recently had their 10 millionth customer served. And that person now gets a free dinner and drinks for two, once a week, for life!

I’ve walked past the Old Homestead many times, but never have gone in. It’s New York’s oldest steakhouse and there’s a bar in there. I think you know where this is leading...Sunday night dinner on the bar crawl! If you’re a vegetarian, you may want to skip this post, because I see dead cow in my future. Moooooo.

You gotta love the giant cow out front of the Old Homestead Steakhouse!

Ashley and Mary are the two friendly and lovely hostesses.

And when it's this crowded, you need two hostesses!

However, I'm walking into bars, not tables and luckily there's plenty of seats available. I see a stool with my name on it!

And  Robinson, the friendly bartender wastes no time in serving up an ice-cold Corona. He also told me the full menu is available at the bar. Looks like this is the spot for the evening!

The Holy Trinity of every bar: Olives, lemons and limes.

A nice flat screen TV looms up in the corner of the bar for your viewing pleasure.

The steakhouse is known for its impressive wine list and here's some of the wine they stock.

And there's a full bar, but tonight I'm sticking to beer. And beef!

Speaking of beef, the table is set and it's getting close to the main event!

Why am I thinking of Sammy Davis and Peter Lawford right now?

Alright, let the Sunday dinner begin! John and Yaro deliver my appetizer, Bang Bang Shrimp.

The dish is tempura-battered shrimp with ginger chipotle and ancho chili. It's the best shrimp I've ever had!

Next up is the Homestead Chopped Salad. I need a little green before the mountain of beef arrives.

Frank was seated next to me at the bar and was enjoying rib steak on the bone. It looks delicious.

Alright, here we go! Jose serves up the main course.

This is truffle mac and cheese. It could be a meal in itself!

Feast your eyes on this, I got the Empire cut of Prime Rib on the bone. It looks like it's going to melt in my mouth! I have to let Frank pick more places for my Sunday dinner, this was an excellent choice! Now let's see if I can eat the whole thing.

And I'm off!

Oh my God! One of the best Sunday dinners on the crawl so far! Now I'm going to go home and have a heart attack! Goodnight everybody!

The Old Homestead Steakhouse is definitely an old-school, traditional New York restaurant and bar. The wooden walls are dark and the space is cozy with tables in the back and a couple up front with a great view of Ninth Avenue. You definitely want to make a reservation, as this place fills up fast with hungry carnivores. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is casual and inviting.

The star of the restaurant is the steak and there’s plenty to choose from. There’s three different cuts of sirloin, four styles of filet mignon, ribeye, rib steak on the bone and porterhouse for two. Some of the non-steak items include: Chilean sea bass, grilled herb rubbed chicken, Colorado rack of lamb and a bourbon glazed pork chop. They also offer four types of burgers, including their famous 20 ounce American Kobe burger. The burger is legendary, but make sure you come on pay day, the price is 41 bucks!

The restaurant has a full bar you can dine at and an award winning wine list. It’s the oldest steakhouse in New York City, so stop by for a slice of history and a slab of beef.

56 Ninth Ave. (near 15th St.)

Wow what a good meal you had. And I see the TV was set to the Lakers/Celtics which the celtics won which im bummed out about. Maybe its an omen but I felt better when you mentioned the KOBE burger they have on the menu. Maybe tomorrow kobe and co. can kick some ass in boston.

Jeez look at the size of that thing!
I cant eat that much steak...but i'd feel bad wasting and try...
The truffle mac and cheese looked awesome.
did it have bits of truffle in it..
truffle is pricy.. not even gonna ask how much that jacks up the price of a mac and cheese.
I like truffle butter actually on steak..

ok nuff food talk...

I am soooo glad you went to this place.. the radio dudes had me drooling when they were telling you about it!

*sooooooooooo jealous*

I also enjoy Old Homestead. But did I tell you that Sushi Samba has kobe burgers! Not as expensive as Old Homestead and not the same size but delicious non the less.

Goddamn! What a meal, I'm jealous too! Your Sunday dinner crawl is always one of my favorites. Nice crawl and a cool old time NY steakhouse!

June 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBarfly

That meal looked AWESOME! I don't eat lots of meat these days, but it's still fun to look and remember. LOL I do, however, eat plenty of mac and cheese. And the truffle variety looked mighty savory.

Nice looking establishment, too....

This beef looks sooooo fuuucking good!!!!! Ohh I'm so hungry and would eat that beef with a shallots sauce!! and I want a Tartiflette with and also a crème catalane for dessert !!!!!!! oh and a good wine like a Bordeaux or a Côtes du Rhônes!!! Fuck yum! fuck! BEEF!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEEEEEEEEF !!!!

And that shrimp make me think about the Fable by Jean de la Fontaine : The Frog Who Would Be as Big as an Ox !!! but it should be : "The shrimp who would be as big than a piece of beef" Ha Ha !!

MMMMMMore prime rib please! The only thing missing was some broiled lobster right next to it, I could die happy and content having finnished a meal like that, my mission on planet earth finally complete. Best looking cut of prime rib I've ever seen...and of course the babage continues unabated at 365!

Hey Daddio!
What a great looking meal!
Maybe change this to a bar GROWL as that is what my stomach is doing looking at these photos.
Damn. I'm hungry!
Heart stoppingly good! (as well as the lovely hostesses)
Great stop on the journey.

Looks like you had a great meal Marty!

What a fantastic restaurant full of patrons enjoying delicious meals and refreshing beverages.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the long apron/tie combo is a classic. Especially for a steakhouse. Your meal looked delicious and I'm for sure putting this place on my captain's list for next visit. There's nothing quite as decadent as a bone-in ribeye oscar style. And if they have escargot, I'm going to marry the place.

June 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBiff

Oh My God, I have been there a few times and I absolutely LOVE the Old Homestead Steakhouse!

@ Zioum Zioum; There's a dish you ought to try, I make it all the time for breakfast...it's not bad, even though someone like Chef Gordon Ramsay would find a million things wrong with it, hand me my ass and send me home in disgrace if I ever had the audacity to sign on as a contestant on Hell's Kitchen, a popular cooking contest show here in the states. I make a plate of crepes, let them cool in the fridge, then I roll them up one at a time with some cream cheese and some home made raspberry preserves in them and wrap them up individually in wax paper and store them in the fridge till its time to eat. Then I nuke one or two of them on a plate with some sausages or ham on the side, with melted butter on the crepe roll up and topped with maple syrup. Yum! a restaurant quality breakfast You can make super cheap and easy!

@ jaws; sounds great! Nothing wrong with that, and I generally wonder what is wrong with famous Chef who (maybe due to a lack of imagination) melt weird things together... I don't know the tast of the cream cheese here (sounds sweet tast? maybe it's why you put raspberry with) our cream cheese is always flavored with herbs, galic, onions etc in France. But to make something similar I would put crème fraiche or a "natural flavored" yogurt in it, which is funny since 2 weeks ago I got so mad in several supermarkets because I couldn't find a "Normal, without flavored, natural" yogurt!!! lol Jason said it's "Greek yogurt" but NO zioum zioum says it is NOT!!! And I found out on web today that it doesn't really exist here. BUT what THE HELL how many different flavored & colored yogurts you got!!! Ha Ha! ;) It's very comon in France to eat crepes with ham, bacon, spinach, tuna, eggs or what ever you want in it !! I need to try with raspberry ;) Oh and try out the : crepes + figs + onion jam + goat cheese !!!!!!!!
we have similar tast food and I would be happy to share more on this subject, so ask my email to marty, or this website will turn into a cooking show! HAHA :D

Paypal been berry berry good to Marty, to be able to eat grub like that! Sure ain't pimento loaf! I have to start a website! A guy falls off 365 bar stools without spilling a drop!
