The Yankees are on deck to open several new restaurants in Manhattan, teaming up with the Hard Rock Café on the expansion of the partnership’s NYY Steak at Yankee Stadium. According to the Post, the first of NYY Steak’s new outposts would probably be in Midtown, though a spokesperson for the organization said “nothing has been determined.” The upscale steakhouse is decorated with autographs of Yankee legends. Among its specialties: a 28 oz. Porterhouse for $54.75, and Maine lobsters for $25 a pound. Michael Hirtenstein, Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum, who brought EMM Group’s Abe and Athur’s, SL and Tenjune to the city, have also been scouting out new restaurant spots. The first, at 21 Ninth Avenue, will be a seafood restaurant and lounge called Catch, featuring the culinary delights of former “Top Chef” winner Hung Huynh and EMM executive chef Franklin Becker. Also on EMM’s plate is a new brasserie, Lexington Brass, which is set to open at the Hyatt 48 Lex hotel. [Post]
