In Manhattan, you never have to eat the same style of food twice in a row, and you can sample cuisine from all over the world. Sometimes, though, nothing but a perfectly grilled steak will do. If you’re craving a delicious dinner fit for even the most discriminating carnivore, check out Keens Steakhouse at 72 W. 36th Street!
Keens Chophouse opened in 1885. It served a boisterous array of actors, playwrights, and others involved in the theater scene, including actors in full stage make-up who ducked in for a drink between a play’s acts! Keens Chophouse developed a broad reputation for its stellar mutton chops.
Today, Keens Steakhouse remains as a reminder of that bygone era. An impressive collection of pipes decorates the walls and ceiling, mementos of patrons such as Albert Einstein, Babe Ruth, and “Buffalo Bill” Cody. Dark wood and old-style art give the restaurant a classical, timeless feel.
The massive mutton chop has kept its place both on the menu, and in the rave reviews of their diners. Patrons have sung the praises of the mutton at Keens for decades. Enjoy it with the house-made mint jelly for a special treat. If mutton isn’t to your taste, Keens serves steaks which are sure to please. Their porterhouse, which serves two or three people, will delight beef lovers of all stripes.
Keens opens at 11:45 AM, Monday through Friday, and 5 PM on Saturday and Sunday. They close at 10:30 PM every night except Sunday, when they close at 9:30 PM. They’re open every day of the year except Christmas Day.
Cap off your meal at Keens Steakhouse with a drink on board a comfortable Seastreak ferry! All our boats feature a cash bar, which serves wine, beer, and spirits. Relax after your meal and ride in style!
Sea you soon!
