It is home to some of the world’s most elegant, enticing, and memorable experiences. It is thee place to celebrate and host your special events. Why not opt for a part of the city’s best-kept secret?

As someone who appreciates exclusivity and loves one-of-a-kind things, I would describe the area as an elevated city within a city; an imperial masterpiece, only accessible by two bridges and staircases; I love that you can’t just stumble upon it.
Tudor city is nestled in the Eastside of 40th to 43rd Streets and 2nd avenue to the FDR Drive. To my surprise, as a native New Yorker, it was pleasant to uncover a rich history, proud community, captivating city views and classy entertainment. In 1926, when Tudor City was being established, the developers and architects had a vision of one of the first, largest, and most important models of a middle-class residential community in New York City. It became the world’s tallest residential skyscraper in its time. The name ‘Tudor’ speaks to the 16th century English and Elizabethan time period and it’s influence on architectural style, design and ornamentation of its buildings.

Rightly positioned in the middle of the historic Tudor City complex; made up of the Windsor, Tudor and Prospect Towers, Tudor City steakhouse, according to Lekic, “is a next-generation” dual-level venue that offers versatility no matter your wedding theme or special occasion interests. Its indoor and outdoor dining areas can accommodate up to 250 seated. No matter the party, each dining area thoughtfully represents a unique part of Tudor City’s emergence.
My husband Troy and I, newlyweds, are committed to keeping our date life fresh and fiery. So we decided on a Sunday brunch date at Tudor City Steakhouse restaurant. Our host, Owner, Mirso Lekic (his wife,not present, as event coordinator), received us well and showed us that good old New York hospitality. Top shelf drinks, family-style servings, and conversation that made you feel like family. I loved it! I loved it more that my husband loved it!. This steakhouse restaurant is the allure of this “castle city” as Lekic puts it.
Famously known for its premium prime dry-aged meats, the restaurant rates one of New York City’s top and best steakhouses.
