Swift & Sons is a traditional steakhouse in the sense that it’s a huge space that offers the usual steaks, sides, and quality service you want in a restaurant like this. It opened in the restaurant-centric Fulton Market neighborhood that didn’t have anything similar, and Swift & Sons emanates the style and coolness of the old meatpacking neighborhood.

Everything we like about a traditional steakhouse combined with everything we like about Fulton Market is a winning combination. That means great food (including wonderfully cooked steaks and seafood), friendly service, and a bustling atmosphere. Plus, there are plenty of old school touches, including a rolling dessert cart. Which, by the way, you should take full advantage of.

22 oz Bone-In Ribeye

You obviously want a steak, but don’t cheat yourself with some sort of baby filet. The ribeye is what we normally order. New York strip is also acceptable.

Cold Platter

Starting with a cold platter is a good way to get the best of both worlds if your main course will be a steak.

Arugula Salad

Arugula, parmesan, lots of mushroom, fennel, onion, and a lemon sauce. A basic but good salad.

Chilled Salmon Tartare

One of the most interesting and best takes we’ve seen on salmon tartare. It’s covered in crème fraîche and charred onion before getting topped with a cold cucumber gazpacho of sorts. It all goes together extremely well.

Au Gratin Potato

Cheesy potatoes with country ham and caramelized onion = #1 side.

Swift & Sons Surf And Turf Special

If you’re a serious meat eater, then you know cap steaks are rare cuts to see on a menu. It’s a tender and lean cut, and Swift & Sons is serving it as part of their surf and turf special along with a 1½ lb lobster. It’s a bit of a splurge, but worth it if you’re interested.
