Gallaghers Steakhouse Reopening on February 4By Billy Lyons | January 24, 2014 By Billy Lyons | January 24, 2014
Gallaghers is ready to reintroduce its hickory coal fired steaks to Manhattan diners starting February 4. The New York City Midtown institution is now under the helm of restaurateur Dean Poll, who spent the last six months updating the 86-year old interior as well as completely overhauling the menu. Poll revitalized the 220-seat dining room by installing everything from new oak floors to restoring photographs from the days of the original owner - and sassy Ziegfield girl - Helen Gallagher. Additionally, servers in black jackets will now roll out dishes on trolleys, a new element added to the storied steakhouse. Though we'll still be able to order up chops and porterhouses, a brand new raw bar is now in place for diners looking to snack on hamachi crudo and salmon tartare. The restaurant's unchanged horseshoe bar will also boast a new Mad Men-style cocktail list composed of old fashioneds and fizzes courtesy of The NoMad's Dominic Venegas.
Here's a look at the brand new menu and what awaits us inside - if we can make it past the infamous meat locker (212-586-5000).
