Dinner: Sparks Steak House

I’m rounding out famous New York City steakhouses with Sparks Steak House.  From the moment you are greeted by the host, you feel the classic, upscale feel of Sparks.  The dark wood and large-framed Hudson River school landscape paintings on gold and burgundy walls evoke a time gone by.  The bar has quite a hopping after work suit crowd.  Clearly, it’s still a place where the good old boys do business meals and deals.

On my visit, I got a steakhouse classic, the sliced tomato and onion salad.

For sides, we shared the creamed spinach and hash brown potatoes.

I got a filet mignon.

My friend got prime sirloin steak.

For dessert, I got the house special, strawberry Romanoff, a special cream made with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream and Grand Marnier.

My friend loved his steak and the sides.  My steak and salad were good.  The dessert wasn’t as great as I’d hoped it would be by the sound of it.  But I highly recommend Sparks as it is a great steakhouse with a classic New York atmosphere and good food.

  1. Yeah, I would have expected that dessert to be a winner. Maybe it’s better at the peak of berry season. Otherwise, looks like a great meal.

  2. Ohhh, I’ve never tried Sparks but have been meaning to! Your meal looks amazing, I will have to go!

  3. Nothing like a classic steak dinner! I heart creamed spinach🙂
