#UNBLACKSummer: Brooklyn Chop House Edition

It’s the aesthetics for me……This week we’re kicking it up a notch as we highlight an amazing upscale and of course black-owned steakhouse. The Brooklyn Chop House which offers Asian style cuisine is owned by former music industry executive Robert (Don Pooh) Cummins, who has worked with heavy hitters such as Mary J. Blige, Diddy, and the late Notorious B.IG.

The Brooklyn Chophouse which is located in the heart of the Financial District is widely known for their delicious juicy steaks, tasty dumplings, fresh organic chicken, and its eye catching presentation. This restaurant prides itself on being thee ONLY Chinese restaurant to use Hormone/ Antibiotic free Bell and Evans chicken.

Now, the steak entrée may cost you a pretty penny, but….it’s a pandemic. Treat yourself! One of the most raved about items on the menu is the 48 ounce Dry-Aged Porterhouse steak, which will run you approximately $149. On the bright side, the portion size is large enough for two people to share. With the prime steak or double chops, patrons have an array of side choices including Bermuda wok fried onions & garlic, wild mushrooms, double thick bacon, french fries, or onion rings.

If you are really feeling bad and boujee, you can also try the 4 pound Ginger and Garlic Maine Lobster. Please note, the cost may vary due to the seasonal market price.

But if you are like me, then you are always “balling on a budget” and the Brooklyn Chop House caters to folks like us. They offer a pretty amazing lunch special where you can get a gourmet three course meal for only $24.95, and you can add a martini to your lunch for an additional $11. Also, if you are having a pandemic birthday, The Brooklyn Chop House is the best place to celebrate. Although there is no indoor seating, they converted their storefront into a beautiful social distanced setting that allows you to comfortably eat while staying safe. Also, for birthday celebrations, they are still bringing out the sparklers and cake, which gives off pre-pandemic vibes.

If we did not already give you enough reasons to STAN the Brooklyn Chophouse, here is one more!

As the Coronavirus unexpectedly shook up the world, it left all of us extremely dependent on our brave but severely hampered health care workforce. While frontline workers pleaded for more and efficient PPE, the staff from the Brooklyn Chop House gave them one less thing to worry about….FOOD. At the beginning of the novel COVID-19 health crisis, the Brooklyn Chop House decided to spread light, positivity, and appreciation to the essential health workers. They began hand delivering their freshly packed gourmet meals to the New York Presbyterian’s Lower Manhattan hospital for FREE. Here at Urban News we stan Black Excellence and there is no better example than this!
