NYY or New York Yankees is a shrine to the Baseball Team. It is owned by the Yankees and is full of memorabilia. I'm guessing its the ideal destination for a fan... I know nothing about baseball but still had a fabulous experience.
We came here for steak on our last evening in NYC and we were certainly not disappointed. they have a room in the basement where they age the beef and you can see the meat hanging there just waiting to be ordered.
From the moment we walked in the door service was amazing. Everyone asks your name and then continues to uses it which is a little bit strange.. but I guess some people like to feel 'special'.
We requested a 'quiet' table which is quite a rarity in New York City due to the volume of its residents but they did their best to accommodate us and we got a table on the second floor, which was substantially quieter than the ground floor where a loud group were gathered at the bar.
Our waiter was charming, and everything about the evening was super efficient.
The only thing I would criticise would be the bread choice. There wasn't any. It was pretzel roll or pretzel roll. It was OK, but as it's not even close to my fave bread I would of liked a choice.
We decided not to have a starter as we really wanted to enjoy the steaks and so i ordered a filet mignon with lobster tail and my husband ordered the strip steak. We had a side of onion rings and steak fries. The onion rings were served as a tower and were visually quite impressive. They probably could of fed a family of five and so needless to say we didn't finish them... They were excellent though. Fresh, hot and crispy. No complaints.
We managed to finish our steaks and in a moment of madness my husband ordered a dessert. I can't remember the name but it was almost as big as my head. It was two enormous (very sweet) biscuits with ice-cream in between. Like a monster ice-cream sandwich. We probably ate about a 10th of that. It was so incredibly sweet and a few spoonfuls were as much as I could manage.
All in all a great experience - even if you aren't a Yankees fan.
