What used to be a garage in the 20's is now a casual American restaurant famous for its live Jazz & late night meals. Out-of-towners & locals alike dive into the a la carte dinners & Prix Fixe Brunches while watching the show. In the summer, the outdoor cafe is an airy spot for micro-brewed beers, raw bar selections & a wide range of fresh seafood & grilled steaks. In the winter, tables around the stone fireplace warm crowds.

It was Valentines Day. They had a prix fixe menu and an a la carte menu. The prix fixe, while a good deal, was much too much food, so my husband and I decide to select items from the a la carte menu. We were told that we HAD to order a least three courses from the a la carte... More

Went here on a Sunday afternoon for brunch. We got a table upstairs near the fireplace, which was nice because down near the band was really loud. They say it's $16.95 for anything on the menu though lots of items have additional charges listed next to them. The food was good but the portions were not that big. We were... More

We came here for some drinks after arriving in NYC as it was around the corner from where we were staying. Service was OK - friendly enough. Drinks were alright. Didn't eat here nor did we stay for the live music so unable to comment.

Only one visit recently for lunch, but menu of burgers and salads was well executed, atmosphere and service good. If you're looking for music, it's a good bet evenings. Otherwise, a reliable place for pub lunch, near the Christopher St. subway.

We had the Christmas brunch. For $30 apiece, pretty good. The $10 minosas, not so much. The host was curt, and almost inattentive. Waiter did a good job, and the jazz was very good.

We had looked at all the reviews on here before we booked but really wanted to go to a place with live music on Christmas day. We arrived 5 minutes before our reserved time (7.30pm) and stood in a queue for at least 20 ,minutes without being acknowledged. The guy who was seating people kept walking up to the podium... More

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
