Just like us, MJ’s restauarant—located in historic Grand Central Terminal in midtown Manhattan—has got Hall of Fame fever. Starting Monday the 7th and running through September, they will be running an “Eat Like Mike” promtion,basketball players of all time, Michael Jordan. The Steak House N.Y.C. will feature Jordan’s favorite cut and sides, Delmonico steak served with a baked potato and broccoli ($39). When dining à la Mike, be sure to raise the dinner’s complimentary glass of Champagne to celebrate his induction!
They will also have the Hall of Fame Burger (pictured at right), which uses his favorite ingredients. Made with fried green tomatoes, sliced onions, Jordan’s own blend of prime sirloin and chuck, and finished with his Nana’s dressing, it’s a slice right out of the legend’s life. Available in the restaurant’s bar, it is served with fries and a choice of soda or Brooklyn Brewery beer, which pays homage to the legend’s birthplace ($23).
What’s more, Michael Jordan trivia question cards will be given to all guests dining at the restaurant and bar. At the end of September, a drawing will be held of correctly answered cards to win two tickets from American Airlines, valid to travel any U.S. flight route.
As stated earlier, SLAM’s role is to give away a $100 gift coin to use at the restaurant. While we don’t have any problem with someone flying from elsewhere to come enjoy it and/or waiting til they come to New York on vacation, we realize this is best for New York-based readers. Hey, those are the breaks. Along those lines, this is how you can win: tell us about your favorite MJ-in-New-York memory. What was it, and why?
Please keep your entries to 100 words or less, and be sure to use a valid email address when you comment so that we can contact you. We’ll let this run through Labor Day Weekend and then pick a winner—whichever entry we think is best—next Tuesday. Good luck!
