We went for the burgers but had to try the oysters and martinis and were not disappointed! Great selection of martinis to choose from, fresh raw or cooked oysters and fantastic hamburgers. The staff were very friendly & made our first night out in Manhattan a memorable one.

I usually trust the reviews on Trip Advisor, but they were wrong on this restaurant. It was disappointing. The kale salad with pears and gorgonzola tasted like the kale was drenched in olive oil with nothing else in the dressing. I could not identify the cheese, but it was not gorgonzola. The roasted cauliflower was steamed in a tasteless broth... More

Classic deli- very hectic and huge portions- traditional NYC deli- unique menu. Also loved their gift shop next door. Some of the people in our party had chopped liver on raisin bread and they said it was amazing !

We had lunch at the restaurant. The service was friendly and helpful- we never felt rushed. The burgers were cooked perfectly and hand cut fries were crisp and not greasy. Prices are reasonable.

A casual stop for a burger or cocktail. Sunday brunch does well here too. Not expensive, casual atmosphere and decent simply prepared food that hits the spot. Has special priced cocktail hour treats oysters and drinks.

Juicy, tasty and done just right! Service was quick and polite. A small place, but great burgers. I'd surely come back.

$17 for a glass of Cabernet is ridiculous at this place. Have a martini instead. The food was good, especially the burger. Nice relaxing atmosphere, good neighborhood go to.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
