“Meat Me”, new French Steakhouse & Sushi Bar to open on Upper West Side

Thanks a Glatt has learned that a new French Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, named “Meat Me” will open in the Upper West Side.  They are planning on opening after the nine days however we know how difficult NYC renovations can be so we would be surprised to see if they open on time or not.

If I could summarize this restaurant down in 10 words it would be: The worst experience at a restaurant I have ever had.

It was my friends birthday last night and we wanted to try something new in the kosher restaurant world instead of going to the usual Clubhouse Cafe or Estihana so we decided to check out the Hibachi Steakhouse in Brooklyn.

There were 12 of us so once again the less than par service (see my review on Betty’s in Great Neck) was expected because of our big group but there was no way to guess it would go this bad.

We came here for what I believe was the fourth time I have ever been this past Saturday.  Since Shabbat ends early they are open but I think that may be a mistake because while it was nice for them to be open we were the only ones in the restaurant for most of our dinner.   So – right off the bat I would recommend it as a date place if you are looking for somewhere low key.  The prices are comparable to Le Meraise and Wolf and Lamb so expect to pay $20-$40 per entrée.   The ambiance? This place likes loves The Rebbe.  They have DVDs on flat screen TVS playing 24/7 showing him as well as other posters and information about him and his works.  From what we later found out that the owner was Baal Teshuva which explains the shrine like dedication to The Rebbe.

Most of our group ended up ordering the Philly steak sandwich based off of my recommendation.  I ordered it again and was not disappointed.  The meat was very juicy and the meal was amazing.  Ask for the white sauce on the side and cover it with it!  My fiancé ordered the ribs and they were quite tasty as well.  Most of their food tends to be on the greasy side however the taste is still good.  Their menu has steaks (try the Argentinian it’s delicious), chicken, and burgers with a variety of ways they cook them.

The service was lame considering we were the only customers however this has come to be the unfortunate standard in the Kosher restaurant world… hopefully someone can prove me wrong sometime in the near future.

I would highly recommend this place if prefer a night out in the city where the conversation and your friends are more important than the crowd and plan on seeing myself there again in the future.

I decided to meet up with an old friend here from my trip to Israel for dinner last night.  Since I keep fully kosher I figured it would be a good place to show off the “trendiest” kosher has to offer in Manhattan.  It’s a great place to go on a Thursday or Saturday night.. you will probably run into someone you know on a date!

Since we didn’t have a reservation they sat us at the worst table in the house – in the very front right behind the hostess.  I pleaded with the faux-hawked manager to give us a different open table but when I realized he wouldn’t budge I gave up.  That was pretty annoying because I hate sitting in a lame spot in a restaurant, I want to be in the middle of all the action.

Speaking of the workers, non of the employees seem to be Jewish.  Most of them are from some European country and one is even tattoo’d all over his body (ask him to see the tattoo on the inside of his mouth!)  They are usually quick to take orders but expect to wait a good while for your food to come out.  The larger your party the most likely some of the food doesn’t come out warm either.
