Royal 35 Steakhouse is first and foremost, well, a steakhouse! Porterhouse Steak for Two, Three, or Four; Prime New York Strip Steak; Prime Bone-In Ribeye; Rack of Lamb; Filet Mignon; Veal Chop; and Petite Filet are all available on the Steaks & Chops menu. The meat is U.S.D.A. Prime, and it has been dry aged in Royal 35’s own aging box, helping it to later take on the perfect flavors during the grilling process.
If steak isn’t your cup of tea, so to speak, then Royal 35’s Seafood menu will not let you down. Grilled Chilean Sea Bass, Grilled Norwegian Salmon Filet, Surf & Turf, Twin Lobster Tails, and Live Maine Lobster can be found on the dinner menu, along with the Royal 35 Seafood Tower, which consists of jumbo shrimp, oysters, tuna tartare, Maine lobster, and clams on the half shell.
As for appetizers, the selection is bountiful, with favorites such as the Royal 35 Crab Cake, Bake Clams, Sizzling Canadian Bacon, and Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail each offering up a great way to start any meal. Soups and Salads also hold their own, including French Onion Soup, Royal 35 Salad, and Beefsteak Tomato & Buffalo Mozzarella Salad.
Royal 35 seats 130, making it an accommodating yet intimate space for those looking to experience the classic New York City steakhouse experience. Impressively high ceilings add to the restaurant’s grandeur, and the mahogany wood walls add to the overall aesthetic, meshing perfectly with the dark leather booths to create an inviting dining area for patrons. You’ll also find an oak wood bar behind the grand wooden door entrance. As if all this wasn’t enough, Royal 35 takes the design a step further, showcasing the impressively large glass meat locker.
