About Us

The Statler Grill harkens back to the golden age of the big band era, and is named after Ellsworth Statler, who ran the Hotel Pennsylvania from 1919 to 1954, when musicians such as Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie and Glenn Miller played at the CafĂ© Rouge, the hotel’s main dining room. The Statler serves classic New York steakhouse prime steaks and chops as well as daily delivered fresh seafood, while the bar and lounge serve a delicious grill menu. Located just steps away from Pennsylvania Station and Madison Square Garden, it is the perfect place to have a breakfast meeting, a meal before an event at the Garden, or just to relax with friends and co-workers during happy hour before you hop on the train.

The owners have been in the restaurant business over 40 years and have assembled a staff of seasoned profressionals who help make your dining experience one to remember. It is all about the food and service says owner Vinny Polsinelli. “I want my guests to enjoy themselves, have a great meal and return again and again.”
