The first time I went to Chef 28 was a few years ago. It is the go-to happy hour hangout for two of my friends that work in the area, and I was told I had to try the lychee martini—complete with two large pieces of lychee floating in the heavenly concoction.
New York City steak houses are legendary, and one of my favorites is Benjamin Steakhouse in Midtown East. I had the opportunity to dine at the restaurant for a work event last year, and the establishment exudes “Old New York” as soon as you enter.
