Overview

We combine the two things we love the most, fine dining and closeup magic. We set our performances at world renowned restaurants around NYC: Tout Va Bien Bistro, Gossip Restaurant, Dock's and now Ben and Jack's Steakhouse. Between each course, our world class entertainers will astound and delight you with a closeup magic show right at your table. There is no better way to experience magic in New York City. Our show is family friendly and perfect for a date night or a night out with friends, and with your meal included in the ticket price there is no need to break the bank. A private bar has been set up in the space for your convenience with a large collections of liquors and a magnificent wine cellar to choose from. Check out our website for more info!

Who doesn’t like magic? This show was so much fun. The magicians are doing what they love and that comes through. Enjoyed all 4 magicians performing for us tableside, each one outstanding and with a different style.

The show was very interesting . Magicians come to your table in between courses at dinner and do tricks with cards and coins, but done in a very slick and professional fashion. We spent 3 hours over dinner and the show and thoroughly enjoyed it....More

Personal magicians come to your table and dazzle you with magic. Even up and close we couldn't work out how the tricks were done. Meal was very good and was good for my teenage boys who didn't want to go to a musical.
