Gallagher’s steakhouse and speakeasy was founded in 1927, by Ziegfield Follies dancer Helen Gallagher.
That year Babe Ruth was the highest paid in baseball, earning an astronomical $70,000 a year.
After the cash in 1929, gamblers, sports figures and Broadway stars gathered nightly for legal alcohol and prime aged beef.
During WW2 Government mandated “meatless Tuesdays” led Gallaghers to close each Tuesday, “If we have to go meatless, we will go eatless.”
In 1964 their famous meatlocker on 52nd street opened a window to the public.
Every steak is aged to tender perfection for 21+ days in the ideal, humidity-controlled environment.
