Once learning the trade at Peter Luger Steakhouse, they went out on their own, bringing a special warmth and hospitality to their restaurants.
Empire Steakhouse has the finest cuts of steaks, the freshest seafood and a premium selection of wine, all of which is offered in a beautiful surrounding with exceptional service. In addition to their famous USDA Prime Dry –Aged Porterhouse steak, exceptional seafood and 400 plus wine list, Empire has an outstanding Single Malt Scotch list, with over 100 selections.
Most of all, the Sinanaj brothers will make their Empire feel like your home.

I visited the location cross town on the east side. It was a large room with high ceilings and a faux fireplace. The fire place was a bit out of place as it was a warm evening, although it seems to be located in a back private table. The service was decent and ambiance matched. I had a soup and a salad for appetizer. The main course, I had a filet mignon and mash potatoes and spinach. The filet was huge, which may have contributed to it being not consistently cooked through. My guest had the salmon and she also received a very large portion. Overall, the meat was good and the porterhouse platters that came out looked delicious.
