A new venue for The Single Gourmet, Ambassador Grill & Lounge offers inventive international cuisine in New York City’s most distinctive dining space, a postmodern interior landmark from the height of the 1970s disco era. On January 17, 2017, it received Landmark status becoming the city’s 118th Interior Landmark and the youngest structure to ever receive such an honor. Today, Executive Chef Ayman Mustafa carries on the Grill’s cosmopolitan culinary heritage featuring subtle influences from his native Jordan.

Regarding the location: one of the reasons I chose it is because it is close to Grand Central Station (less than 3 crosstown blocks). Regarding transportation: I talked to the concierge, I asked him if it would be difficult to get a taxi at 12:30 or 1 AM after New Year’s Eve, and he said he has been there every New Year’s Eve for the past 23 years, and it was never difficult to get a cab. I am not making any promises in that regard, but that is what he said. 


Appetizers (choice of):

  • Lobster Bisque – topped with crème fraiche
  • 8-ounce Grass-fed Beef Meatball – marinara, basil, parmesan, lemon ricotta
  • Pomme Frites – made from sweet potatoes 

Winter Apple Salad – baby arugula, spinach, Brussels sprouts, cranberries, feta cheese, caramelized pecans, maple vinaigrette

Entrees (choice of):

  • Mediterranean Murray’s Chicken – pearl couscous, peas, shallots, garlic, grape tomato, lemon sauce
  • Ora King Salmon – fingerling potatoes, leeks, corn, enoki mushroom, thyme, chowder sauce
  • Flat Iron Steak Frites (substitute 14 oz NY Strip Steak +$20) – french fries, arugula, red wine jus


  • Triple Chocolate Layer Cake
