The Great Jones is an essential part of the New York City experience. Food is very spicy -- even when ordering "mild" -- but very, very good. Love the staff and the ambience -- a lot of good in a small package. The sign on...More

The colorful exterior caught my eyes as I was walking up The Bowery. Inside is dark, small but very welcoming. I had a cheeseburger and bloody mary...both excellent. The assortment of music in the jukebox is supurb.

Have been going to Great Jones Cafe for years. Must have my wonderful Great Jones Sazerac and fried oysters every so often. That's classic New Orleans fare but Great Jones is a lot closer than New Orleans and just as good (if not better). A...More
