Our Story

Empire Steak House is built on much more than brick and mortar.

Its foundation is built on the nearly 40 year journey of the Sinanaj brothers. The three brothers, Russ, Jack, and Jeff came to New York with determination to succeed and a strong work ethic they credit to their father.

Once learning the trade at Peter Luger Steak House, they went out on their own, bringing a special warmth and hospitality to their restaurants.

Empire Steak House has the finest cuts of steaks, the freshest seafood, and a premium selection of wine, all of which are offered in beautiful surroundings with exceptional service. In addition to their famous USDA PrimeDry Aged Porterhouse steak, exceptional seafood, and 400 plus wine list, Empire has an outstanding Single Malt Scotch list, with over 100 selections.

Above all, the Sinanaj brothers will make their Empire feel like your home.
