Stephen's birthday Part II (Sparks Steakhouse NYC)

26 March 2016
So Sparks Steakhouse?
Stephen loves steak! So much! 
He is also so interested in people like John Gotti.
So this place brings both worlds together....
Paul Castellano, Gambino crime family boss, along side Thomas Bilotti were gunned down in the entrance of Sparks Steakhouse in 1985. John Gotti gave the orders for the hit and he was across the street while it happened. It is now a historic landmark in NYC and every year, on the anniversary of the hit, people send flowers. 

Birthday Boy!
Appetizer: Combination of Baked Clams and Shrimp Scampi

This was my plate.
I got the Sliced Steak with Sautéed Onion & Peppers. ($42.95)
This was the most delicious steak I have ever ate. (very juicy and tender)
I managed to finish it all. Would deff recommend to everyone! 

Stephen got the Prime Sirloin Steak ($54.95)
According to him,
 "Juicy, tender steak"
"Fresh-tasting crab meat on top of the steak"
"Would deff recommend"
Fresh Mango Sorbet in its own Natural Fruit Skin ($10.50)
The presentation was very cool.
Me and Stephen really enjoyed it! 

We also went with Stephen's parents so what they had is also included.
(We left tip in cash!) 

Very nice server and great service.
The style of the restaurant was very old fashioned and old school.
The server told us the menu has not changed since they first began 
and they have not changed the way they cook anything. (The owner's original plan was to never change the menu and always keep it consistent)
Mostly all the Chefs have been there for over 35 years! 
The Wine list is LONG! Very good for wine lovers!
The menu is quite pricey so make sure to come with an attitude to spend money 
on real authentic food! 
This is the type of restaurant you go once but never come back till many years later
so that's the plan. hahahhaha. 
We all had a very nice time!!!!
