After a lovely break in New York we found ourselves wanting a light meal before a flight from Terminal 7 back to Heathrow. We had to queue to get in but after seeing the meñu I could not see why, apart from the fact that...More

I don't even know how to start this review. On the way home, we stopped at this place to grab a bite. I waited about 15 mins before a server came to greet us. Once she arrived, she apologized for the wait, it was fine,...More

On arrival I was ignored by the tender at the bar for several minutes before they finally offered to serve me (it wasn't busy, but I am sure he enjoyed the banana he was eating!) After ordering a drink I asked if there was a...More

The last meal we had in New York was here at JFK Airport whilst waiting for our overnight plane back to the UK. Decent beach themed bar where we enjoyed Sam Adams beer and burgers (billed as sandwiches, but actually burgers). The food was nice...More

The bar was the first thing that caught our attention after an especially frustrating experience with the TSA...and the bartender did not disappoint! The drinks were solid and strong. We were so encouraged by this experience that we ordered an appetizer (loaded nachos), then dinner...More
