The Loft Steakhouse is an upscale restaurant in Boro Park, yes Boro Park and not Soho in The City! Opened in 2013, the owner Yossi Gluck welcomes a sophisticated clientele, dressy, and perfect for romantic evenings for two and plenty of room for a table of ten. It’s walls of glazed exposed brick and warm chestnut and russet colors create an inviting Old World ambience, while the metal-encased lanterns and a glass waterfall wall, set in Jerusalem stones, form a contemporary aesthetic decor. There is an upper “loft” which yields ample space to accommodate up to 75 people for a family gathering, party or business function. Meanwhile, manager, Mattis and his team work hand in hand for elegantly prepared dishes with the highly acclaimed top-rated Executive Chef Boris Poleschuk. Chef Poleschuk graduated from the French Culinary Institute and went on to appear on the popular TV series, Hell's Kitchen. The restaurant has two kitchens: the downstairs prep kitchen, where the butchering is done, vegetables are chopped, sauces and stocks are prepared, and the upstairs kitchen, which is used for finishing and plating dishes.
Fine wine and cocktails are a great way to start the evening, from sipping the Strawberry Daiquiris or the Pina Colada. If you want something juicy and delicious, try the Chicken Lollipops made with crispy breaded drum sticks with mango chili sauce, Crispy Beef, and the Pulled Beef Sliders for appetizers. The sushi menu offers an array of special and tempura rolls like the The Explosion Roll with mango, kani, spicy salmon, special sauce, Natruto Roll with spicy salmon, avocado, crunch wrapped in cucumber, and Mattis’ favorite, The Sweetheart Roll made with spicy kani, cooked salmon, spicy tuna, avocado, cucumber, and soybean wrap. To get a taste of Chef’s Specials, the Salmon Mini Pizza and the Zaru Tuna are crispy fun bites. Entrees includes the Braised Short Ribs with it’s honey cider glaze, herbed baby potatoes and onion chutes. When dining at a steakhouse like The Loft, it is recommended to try something off the grill menu, like their 14 oz. Steak au Poivre (Pepper Crusted Filet), 24 oz. Black Angus Boneless Rib Eye, and the hottest steak of them all, The Surprise Cut made from the thin edge of a rib roast and best piece of meat of the entire cow. Their motto is “The Loft is where food stories are made” and there is always a happy ending in this story.
