The New York Times said Robert’s Steakhouse is one of the best steakhouses in New York City. Now, it’s coming to Atlantic City.
In New York, Robert’s is located on the Penthouse Executive Club’s second floor. That’s right, one of the best steakhouses in N.Y. is located inside a strip club. But the Taj Mahal’s version will not be affiliated with any scantily clad women; it will let the food speak for itself.
According to Robert’s website, the restaurants feature “generously portioned, classic entrees made with hand-selected ingredients. An array of dishes ranging from in-house, dry-aged steaks (cut to order) to inventive dishes ... accent the enticing menu.”
The New York menu is certainly pricy but eclectic: Robert’s Salad ($20) features shrimp, lobster, marinated tomatoes, French green beans, mango and basil; tuna tartare ($24) is served with quail egg and sourdough toast; steaks range from $51 to $106; grilled venison ($41) is served as a tenderloin with double-smoked bacon; seafood dishes include scallops ($37), twin South American lobster tails ($99) and wild salmon ($38); and $14 sides range from creamed spinach to beer-battered onion rings.
It’s unclear whether the opening of Robert’s will mean the Taj will close its longtime steakhouse, Safari, but it’s unlikely the casino resort would feature two steakhouses. The opening of Robert’s will finally position all of the Taj Mahal’s gourmet restaurants on the main level.
An opening date has not been announced.
