The Old Homestead

56 9th Ave.
New York City
Manhattan, Meatpacking District, West Village
(212) 242-9040

Surrounded by the neighborhood made famous by Sex and the City, The Old Homestead is a refuge amidst the cloud of estrogen. Impeccable service from a staff so knowledgeable you’ll think they earned a PhD in Making Customers Feel Awesome. Everything at The Old Homestead is good - the Beefsteak Tomato Salad is almost as killer as the steaks - but the meat is why you’d come to this area of town (you know, the Meatpacking District); hopefully not for the Apple Store and trendy boutiques nearby. The good news for the Bachelor is that he may have a chance to see a model wolfing down a T-Bone, a true sight to behold.

Venue Tip: 

If steak isn’t your thing go with the $41 hefty burger made of Kobe-style beef that’s a delicious, ridiculous indulgence.

The Good: 
Awesome food, amazing service, a meal you won’t soon forget.
The Bad: 
The Old Homestead is a tiny bit stodgy. This is the type of place your parents would go to for a special occasion. Can you handle that?

Price: $$$$

Signature dish: The Sirloin Steak will melt in your mouth. Unbelievable.

Attire: Ranges. Older parties will be in sports coats and slacks, younger groups will be in jeans and collar shirts.

Vibe: Somewhere between old-world New York City high-class fair and a down-to-earth neighborhood eatery.

What’s next?: For clubs just head to West 14th Street, young man. Other options: try The Boom Boom Room or Biergarten at the Standard, Plunge Bar & Lounge at the Hotel Gansevoort, The Griffin, White Horse Tavern, Hogs & Heifers.
