My wife had been here on a previous visit to NYC, and thought it was outstanding for a good pub lunch. Indeed she was spot on - good atmosphere, good service, very good pub food - excellent value.

Take a trip back a few years and enjoy a real downtown feel. Love this pub when I am downtown and need a good beer. Food is good for lunch. Staff is friendly.

We visited NYC, ate here before and had to return! You walk in and are welcomed straight away. The menu is exactly what you expect from a New York cafe and the steak sandwich was to die for. Wash it down with Brooklyn lager and you have an amazing lunch!

This restaurant is a must for all NYC visitors. The atmosphere is nothing quiet and nothing romantic but just as you would imagine New York in the old years, it's small, noisy, very busy but this is exactly what makes it so special. The burgers are great!

So we walked all the way to Galli's (an Italian place on Mercer) only to be rudely told 'no room at the inn!' So as we were walking back to the Subway we passed Fanelli's. From the outside it looks like a bar, but there is a dining that can be seen too. We gave it a try. We sat... More
