Peachy Picks Hunt and Fish Club @huntandfishnyc by Nelson Braff @BraffNelson and Team #PeachysPicks #WhomYouKnow @ManhattanPeachy

"When you arrive at Hunt and Fish Club, you will discover a fabulously friendly atmosphere that is both motivated to excel in the culinary arts and the fine points of hospitality, thus welcoming visitors to Manhattan who are friends we have yet to know and also the treasured clientele who in their genuine love for our experience have built us to become the successful restaurant since our inception over three years ago."
-Nelson Braff, Owner
The Definition of Steak: Sliced 24 oz Bone in Ribeye Perfectly Medium Rare 

Alaskan King Crab Legs, dinner of Winners of Game Sevens!
It's not who you know, it's WHOM YOU KNOW and it always has been.
We know the Hunt and Fish Club, and they have impressed us immensely and we are thrilled to announce they are the newest Peachy's Pick.  There are many owners but Nelson Braff is leader of the packEytan Sugarman, Anthony Scaramucci, and David Barrett are among the other partners.  Chad Brown is the Executive Chef.
They were first featured in 2015:
And they were most recently featured last year:
We began with their world famous popover.

This was followed by one of their new menu items: Elite Baked Shrimp, a lovely appetizer.  They're crisp, warm and sourced from Samuel and Sons.  Six days a week seafood is delivered to Hunt and Fish Club, ensuring your dinner is uberfresh.  Stolichnaya elite baked shrimp, vodka sauce, sopressata and crispy shallots team up for a goal in your stomach.
We are looking for the hottest salads now in Manhattan, and the Three Leaf Caesar is absolutely one of the best we've had.  Trevisano, Baby Kale and Romaine form a triple goal similar to a hat trick and are joined by superlative GARLIC croutons to satisfy your inner garlic monster.  Peachy thinks they are shaped like goalie pads.  Hunt and Fish Club is on it in terms of details and they put the dressing on the side for Ms. Super Picky.
Of course it is in a gorgeous silver boat, the same hue as The Stanley Cup.
If you are looking for something with a bit of sweetness, you can't go wrong with the Local Field Greens with strawberries!  They are a highly underutilized item in green salads as are raspberries and blackberries.

Almonds and balsamic vinegar round out the nutritious plate and the colors are this rich and deep in real life; we never edit pictures.  Again the Stanley Cup colored boat of dressing is aside the salad so you can control how much you put on.

Just like that breakfast cereal claims to be the breakfast of champions, we say the Hunt and Fish Club's Alaskan King Crab Legs are the dinner of champions.  You can have them chilled or steamed and Peachy prefers steamed.  This is her most favorite food period and these are the best that she has ever had in Manhattan.  Ever ever ever.  Until she eats them again that is, and then we visualize a tie scoreboard.  They were so fresh and the melted butter on the side was perfection.  The crab quality made us so crabby we became happy.
If you like crab, chances are you like lobster too.
Like and love are not strong enough words for how you will feel about the Gnocchi with Lobster and Caviar, another new item to grace the menu under Pastas.   Russian black caviar perches upon lobster and gnocchi successfully swimming in tarragon vermouth cream.  This dish is the definition of decadence.  It tastes like luxury feels.
In case you want to continue along the crab theme and we believe you will, you should next order another new dish under pasta: King Crab Spaghetti!  Tomato, scallion, tobiko and spicy bread crumbs cheer for the succulent crab nestled in the ideally al dente spaghetti.  Other spaghettis are cowering in the corner looking at this dish in jealousy.
The Main Courses are the stuff of All Star Teams as in all of the Mains here are the best entrees that could ever exist.  There is no weakness among the eight choices of entrees NOT including the seven additional Steak Mains.
Meet King Salmon!  Perched majestically upon roasted root vegetables which are succulent and delicious in themselves, the Salmon is sourced from Scotland and is wild caught.  Some salsa verde rounds out the dish nicely.
Green vegetables are a total must in life.
If you want to win hockey games, business deals or just win a long life so you can eat more great dinners, you eat your green vegetables and they are just splendid at Hunt and Fish Club.  From the classic Grilled Asparagus to the dreamy Creamed Spinach to the enticingly unique Spicy Broccoli Rabe with red pepper flakes, even the vegetables are decidedly decadent at Hunt and Fish Club.

The last round of fireworks was for our carnivorous entree, which we let them pick.
They picked the 24 oz Bone In Ribeye which put other steaks to shame.  From the high quality Brandt beef, a ranch in California, grass fed and corn finished to the phenonmenal sliced presentation to the first savory bite, this steak proclaimed victory over all other steak dinners.  
Every bite is blissful and juicy!  Make this your dinner!
And we always can't wait to see what they do next.
Peachy Picks Hunt and Fish Club!
Hunt and Fish Club Has Earned Our Highest Recommendation.
