Had a great time at rc with the misses last Thursday. All in with tip was $210 and we were full and brought leftover lamb home.

star of show, best flatbread I ever had at a restaurant (we always try). Not hard not soft, crisp outside with soft inside, along with great bacon and high quality steak strips perfectly medium rare.

Colorado rack of lamb, truly perfect, had to pick up and chew on the bones at the restaurant.

Not seen - lamb bacon salad with toasted honey pecans that was very nice but Iím not such a salad guy


beignets - got them before and they were a lil better but really the weakest part of the meal, a lil too hard and sauces not amazing. Jezebel used to do a much better job.

Finally made my way to UN Plaza Grill after hearing such great reviews about it!

The Decor and Ambiance is very nice. Its not easy to find the place. It is located in the Trump tower which is easy to spot.



There is not much parking around either but the parking lots had weekend rates of up to 10 hours for about $14 ($10 extra if you have an oversize car) We were starving and not in the mood of going around a million times so we went for that option

The place was very empty which was good for us, we had quick and attentive service

We started with the Wagyu Empanadas- $24 very good



We also had the Short Rib Tacos -$26 Its been a while since I had Reserve Cuts but I gotta give UN the edge here they were excellent!



For steaks I was thinking of going for the $350 Wagyu Steak but it was only 10 ounces so I decided against it LOL (just kidding)



I went with the UN filet- $61 which is a 12 OZ steak it was cooked perfectly but a little on the dry side luckily they had some good steak sauces but a steak in a restaurant like this should not need any sauce on the side



My wife went with the UN exclusive cut -$75 also a 12 OZ but it was very juicy and soft and cooked perfectly as well (the picture is a horrible picture) Next time I come here I am definitely going to go for this steak



Sides:

mashed potatoes- $13 very good



Wild mushrooms- $13 also very good



Drinks: Pina Coloda virgin $10 good & Pinot Noir wine -$17 EH



Dessert- Triple Chocolate play- $14 excellent



French Beignets-$14 excellent as well



All in all a great (expensive) meal but I would definitely return
Was just there. Arrived at 6:30 place was pretty empty. Started filling up around 8.

Basically had the same menu as above, except for a glass of Montifiore Cabernet which was excellent and expensive ($23).

Agree on the tacos, excellent. Best I've ever had. Pass on the Empanadas.

Had the same steaks. UN Filet was dry even though we asked for it Medium Rare. Sauces were not good at all. UN Exclusive was superb. Melted like butter. PErfectly done medium rare as well. 

Mashed potato side was over-rated. Reminded me of what Karpas tastes like at the seder potato and parsley. Pass on that. Wild mushroom side was out of this world.

Desserts were outstanding Beignets and Triple Play Chocolate were perfect.

Brought home a second order of tacos and leftover beignets for the kids.

All in $380

Thanks @mochjas for the review and menu.

Was there yesterday.
Portions are small but the food was great.

We enjoyed all the food but the pappardelle deserves a special mention. Easily the best pasta I ever had!
The restaurant is beautiful, but small. Make sure to make a reservation.

Haven't been out in New York in a while, coming in for the summer and have one or two nights to go out.
Deciding if we should go to reserve cut or try something new.
Maybe UN plaza grill? What are the other top options? Manhattan or Brooklyn
