Heffernan creates a distinctive and seasonally-inspired Modern
American menu, attracting both native New Yorkers and visitors
alike. South Gate transitions from a casual morning patisserie to a
sleek sky lit lunch spot to a nighttime dining destination with “urban
tavern” intimacy. Enjoy rich, flavorful dishes that surprise your

The Prime Rib
Subdued lighting, Louis Icart lithographs, leopard-print carpeting,
high-backed leather chairs and live music at both lunch and dinner make The Prime Rib one of the swankiest dinner destinations in
the Mid-Atlantic. The timeless elegance evokes a 1940’s supper club
ambience, when dining was romantic and civilized. The Zagat Survey
rates it “#1 Steakhouse in D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia.” The
menu features the namesake prime rib, aged steaks and the freshest
seafood with an award-winning wine list to complement your dining
experience. Reservations are recommended. primerib.com.

Tracks Raw Bar & Grill
Everyone knows there is a legendary raw bar in Grand Central, but
Penn Station can also boast about housing one as well. Tracks Raw
Bar & Grill was named “The best new raw bar in the city” by the
Daily News, and Newsday stated, “The clam chowder is outstanding.” Filled with railroad memorabilia, and staffed by the friendliest
bartenders in the city, you’d never know you were in the middle
of the busiest train station in America. In addition to exceptional
seafood, they also plate a terrific burger and fall-off-the-bone ribs.
Proud recipients of the coveted Guinness Gold Standard Award.
