he won't be back at the Garden again.........and he probably will never be at this restaurant again. But......it is very good...convenient....and.....you can at least tell everyone you saw Michael Jordan today.

Close your eyes for a moment and picture this! Low lights...post stressfull, busy-day chatter...the sound of wine pouring into the glass...surrounded by a heaven of olfactory stimulation...oysters, assorted cheeses, warm garlic bread, lobster, shrip, fine olive oils and herbs, and of course dont forget their signature steak...cooked as you desire. Fortunately you dont have to keep your eyes closed for long because this experience can be yours...for a fare price of course.

Grand and Bland

As with MJ himself, the view is spectacular, but the talent in the kitchen just can't compare. The steak was average, and the sides were bland. Fortunately, the views kept me distracted from the whopping price for average food.

The website's designation as being "Good for Kids" is very misleading. After a long weekend in the city with my 5- and 9-year-olds, and eating in only kid-oriented restaurants, I was looking forward to dining in a place that would cater to all of us. I was surprised to find that this place has no kids' menu. Thank goodness macaroni and cheese was offered as a side dish on the regular menu, or there would have been nothing there that my kids would eat. There wasn't even a bit of basketball memorabilia for them to look at. The only saving grace was when I asked to be moved to a table overlooking the main concourse so that at least the kids would have something to look at. My entree was very good, but everything on the menu was extremely over-priced for what we got. We left and went to Ben and Jerry's.

A Meaty-meal in Grand Central

Best for the gluttonous and cigar-loving, fat, affluent, white-male. Great Mac 'n Cheese and nice steaks, but other than that I'm OVER IT!

Eat Your Heart Out, Luger's

First, Luger's is great, but I've rarely felt like doing the car thing both ways to get there. Jordan's is a beautiful space (open-ceilinged, framed by Grand Central) with first-class food and service. The atmosphere is special, but for those few tables by the escalators. Steaks are great (their meat is as good as Luger's) as are the sides. Many excellent non-steakhouse dishes here. Very good wine list, particularly CA-based wines. Servers are spot-on. By the way, their "chopped steak" is my favorite burger in the City.

My first steakhouse visit.

I chose Michae's for my first steakhouse visit because of its location. We went for an early dinner on Sunday, so the place was pretty empty. I can only assume that the crowd picks up. Noise level was really my only complaint. I would have enjoyed it more had the location been just a little more quiet. I ordered the roast chicken w/pan drippings which came with snow peas and baby onions and a side of mashed potatoes. I thought the food was great, however, my date did not not agree with me. He felt the portions of food were too small. For desert I had the brownie sundae which was absolutely heavenly.

One of the best center cut filet mignon I've had in ny. The problem is that it's too informal for the price, you have a great view if you like grand central. Overall is a nice steakhouse but too expensive, service is good but the atmosphere is not that good.
