If you’re looking for an iconic place to take a date on Valentine’s Day, and one that offers fabulous views, look no further than Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C. Located on the balcony of one of NYC’s most beautiful architectural landmarks, Grand Central Terminal, the restaurant overlooks the stunning Beaux-Arts main concourse with views of the famous clock and stories-high windows.   You can even dine under the stars of Grand Central’s spectacular constellation-embellished cerulean blue ceiling. Grand Central Terminal’s culinary gem, designed by David Rockwell in 1998, pays homage to glamorous train travel, notably the 20th Century Limited, and has a design and layout reminiscent of a dining car. In addition to MJ’s regular menu that features perfectly charred steaks, fresh seafood and other classic dishes, for Valentine’s Day this year, Executive Chef Canalizo will be offering specials included below my signature. more
