We had the pleasure of getting a chance to try out the Brooklyn Chop House, deceivingly located in Tribeca and also now has a location in Southampton that celebrities flock to.
The menu is extremely unique in the offerings they have, in addition to the usual steakhouse options. The menu is also extensive with something for everyone. I suggest coming with big groups as you’ll want to try a lot but will have tremendous servings to answer to!
As this was after work, cocktails were the first thing on the agenda. The Fresh Squeezed Watermelon Cooler with St. Germain, Grey Goose and fresh basil, is one of the most popular drinks on the menu and it’s clear why that is. The drink is as fresh as advertised and goes down dangerously easy. The Spicy Mango Margarita gives you spicy and sweet with Patron Tequila, Cointreau, fresh lime juice and agave syrup living in complete harmony. Both are summer in a glass and Instagrammable to boot.
For food, we started with the dumplings, which are a must. We tried the Bacon Cheeseburger, Pastrami and French Onion Soup dumplings. They were all chock full with fillings and the French onion soup dumplings shined! We also had the Short Rib Bao Buns, which were extremely flavorful.
We were pretty full already, but HAD to try more things. We opted for the 18-oz. NY Prime Dry Aged Strip Steak. After all, we were at a steakhouse and they are aged for 45 days. This steak is definitely big enough to share. We also got the Steamed Montauk Black Bass with garlic and black bean broth. Both were wonderful. We received mushrooms and broccoli as sides, which were perfect accoutrements.
We couldn’t possibly eat anymore, but we ended with a trio of sorbets, which was a nice palate cleanser after a pretty substantial meal.
We saw tons of birthday parties happening, complete with sparklers and celebrations, but could see us here on a client dinner, with colleagues after work, with family, or on a date. If you have no idea what to order, if you give the staff an idea of what you like, they’ll help you with choosing items for the perfect meal. Regardless of the occasion, we’ll be back to try more things on the menu. And if you’re in the Hamptons this summer, check out their location in Southampton!
