Most nights we ate out either near our apartment or downtown Manhattan. Here are a few of the places we ate at.
Harlem Tavern – This was not far from our apartment. A lively, friendly sports bar. The food was excellent – we ate here twice and both times the food service were very good. The Tavern is family friendly, lots of tv screens with sport on and the second time we were in there was some live music.
McHales Pub – an Irish pub on 51st Street very close to the Gershwin Theater. We were looking for somewhere quick to eat before seeing Wicked and this place was close by. Food and service very good – one of the few places we didn’t get water served automatically.
Amy Ruths – Another local restaurant. We visited this after a busy day – Matt just about fell asleep. Very popular restaurant with locals. Good value food – plenty of food served. Famous for fried chicken and waffles.
Sardis – Another night out on Broadway and this time we had plenty of time so went to Sardis. Great food and service more expensive than where we had eaten before. Atmosphere great a mixture of theatre goers.
Native – The last of the local restaurants. This one was at the end of the street we were staying on. Very busy when we arrived but still managed to get a table. Great atmosphere – popular with locals. We had to wait a while on our food but the serving staff were very attentive. The food was excellent – worth a trip up to Harlem. Currently has scaffold on the building but the joint is still jumping!
Cafe Fiorello – an Italian restaurant by The Lincoln Center. Ate here on Easter Sunday. Had pizza which was very good – very thin base with fresh basil and mozzarella. Another restaurant I would visit again when a little bit more hungry.
Oyster Bar, Grand Central Station – a little bit of luxury towards the end of the holiday. Great food and service – only complaint was not a great amount of non fish dishes – Matt not keen on fish. The rest of us loved our food. Amazing restaurant in a very Grand train station.
