Two Peter Luger alumni — Benjamin Prelvukaj, below left, and chef Arturo McLeod — will open their second Benjamin Steakhouse in the former Mighty Joe Young’s space in Hartsdale this month.
The space will be luxurious and comfortable, with dark wood floors, banquettes, burgundy booths and chocolate leather chairs. A stone fireplace is the centerpiece of the 200-seat dining room.
There’s also a 50-seat patio and a bar and lounge area. The menu will, naturally, focus on steak, including ribeyes, filet mignons and 36-ounce Porterhouses, all dry-aged in an aging box that holds more than 25,000 pounds of beef. Other choices will include Chilean sea bass, crab cakes, a seafood platter with shellfish, and sides, including McLeod’s signature “Creamless Creamed Spinach.”
