It’s Restaurant Week, also know as my favorite time of year to check off my list of “Restaurants I Have to Try.” Hunt & Fish Club was of course on the top of my list. This restaurant made it’s debut in 2014 and since then I’ve heard nothing but good things. You can find your favorite A-List celebrities dining in the “White Room” under the stunning chrome light installation in the main dining room while carving their succulent steak with a personalized steak knife. Or you can also find guests sipping a signature cocktail at the bar in the “Black Room.” Hunt & Fish Club’s ritzy atmosphere transports each guest back to the 1960’s with original artwork, marble floors and mirrored walls. This dining experience was perfect for my boo’s birthday dinner and fantastic for escaping the crazy streets of Times Square and disappearing into a world of high end flair.
The moment I entered the dining room at Hunt & Fish Club, my eyes were immediately drawn to the huge painting on the back wall and the stunning lights above our heads. I sat in the middle of the dining room and got to take in the entire experience. Hunt & Fish specializes in traditional steak and chop dishes, fresh seafood entrees and signature cocktails. I was impressed to find out they also create their specialty desserts in house and the desserts change weekly. After mulling over the restaurant week menu, I decided to order Broiled Oysters, Artic Char and Chocolate Raspberry Mousse for dessert. The oysters were tasty, the Artic Char was slightly salty but I have a very salty pallet so I loved it and the mousse cake was delicious. I had a glass of Moscato to accompany my meal and it went perfectly. (I was also able to taste the Hanger Steak and White Chocolate Cake. They were both wonderful.) A table nearby to mine finished their meal with the “Everyday Sundae.” This creative sundae allows you to choose your toppings such as a cookie, lollipop, fresh made whipped cream, fresh fruit, sprinkles, chocolate and caramel syrup and almost anything else you think goes on a sundae. Watching the waiter create this specialty treat and seeing the excitement on my fellow diners faces let me know that this restaurant truly had something special to offer.
After my meal, I was lucky enough to get a tour of the restaurant. Hunt & Fish Club offers private dining in their stunning “Green Room.” This room offers a long table fit for 25 guests that is perfect for an intimate dining affair. Downstairs, a glass encased infinity wine cellar leads to the romantic “Blue Room.” This breathtaking event space is wrapped in gorgeous drapery under a grand, mirrored ceiling. Not only is the wine cellar a unique aspect of this restaurant, the wall of personalized knives gives the restaurant it’s own unique touch. Even 50 cent, Derek Jeter and Fat Joe have personalized knives there! I hope to dine here often and be important enough to have my own personalized knife one day. (Adds this to list of food blogger goals.)
