Iconic, Legendary Garden City Hotel Debuts New Polo Steakhouse Fall 2013

September 7, 2013 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

Polo Steakhouse will make its debut this Fall at the iconic and historic Garden City Hotel, celebrating its 140th-year anniversary in 2014.

Polo, a quintessential American steakhouse, will be a benchmark for steakhouses on Long Island, serving classic, hand-selected, premium-quality steak and freshly caught seafood for discerning hotel guests and the surrounding residential and business community.

Polo Steakhouse will offer signature dishes, such as a signature 28-day, dry-aged prime grade Bone In Filet Mignon, Porterhouse for two, Bone In Rib Eye, Kansas City strip steak as well as center-cut Filet Mignon, Steak Au Poivre, Colorado lamb chops and smoked long bone Berkshire pork chop. Specialty dishes will include grilled Swordfish, Scottish salmon and classic Steak Diane prepared tableside. Entrees will be complemented by a variety of a la carte starters, salads, side orders and a raw bar. Pricing for steak will range from $40 to $95.

“The key to hand-picking the best steak is partnering with the region’s top purveyors and knowing the breed of cattle, how they are raised and what they are fed,” comments Polo Steakhouse’s (and The Garden City Hotel’s) Executive Chef, Michael Mandato, who has worked with such top chefs as Jean-Georges Vongerichten at New York’s Brandywine Restaurant, and has cooked throughout the world, even for such notables as the Queen of England and the Duke of Edinburgh.

The 120-seat Polo Steakhouse will serve weekday lunches and daily dinners in both the main dining room and the Wine Room, a private space for special events and celebrations for up to 50 guests. The interior, imagined by Italian designer Marcello Pozzi, combines traditional steakhouse dining with modern luxury, characterized by hand-laid mahogany herringbone floors, deep cabernet textiles and custom-made Italian furniture, including leather sofas with red piping.

“Polo Steakhouse will honor the tradition of great steakhouses and will be a defining addition to a new era of our hotel’s history. We are putting forth a modern classic,” says Garden City Hotel General Manager Grady Colin. “Expect a sophisticated yet approachable restaurant experience with superlative steaks, seafood and a few surprises- complemented by the attentive and gracious service expected of our iconic property.”

When the new restaurant opens, Rein, the hotel’s current restaurant, will be renamed Polo Lounge to serve breakfast and a light menu throughout the day, followed by cocktails and evening entertainment.
