Pizza Beach Club is a very cool beach looking restaurant, finished in all white brick walls with fantastic oversized photography adorning the walls. The pictures are all fantastic beach scenes, and the the odd surfboard adds to the overall theme and feeling as though you've just come off the beach and are ready for a feast. The menu is pizza...

After doing some shopping in SoHo, we were tired and hungry. We were sitting outside of Brinkley's looking on Yelp for places to eat and this restaurant received good reviews. We were so glad we checked it out. The brunch menu had an assortment of items sure to please anyone. Cocktails were also available. When I ordered iced tea, I... More

If you're in a hurry and want a quick bite but yet still good taste, this is the place to go! It's right off of the train (Lexington line). I had the grilled chicken avocado sandwich, with french fries. It was deeelicious! YUM! A friend of mine had the sweet potatoes fries, which wasn't nothing to talk about.....Expect....that it seemed... More

A friendly retreat in the noisy street next to Bloomingdales, this bar was a real find. The staff (Devin!) were great and the food pretty good too. A nice choice of beers and lively in the evening, a place you could relax, cool without being pretentious.

the best hamburger in town is at brinkley, a simple restarant/bar with very good food and drinks. Fries come with the hamburger; a choice of sweet potato or regulars. Opt for the sweet potato. An expensive treat , but the $$ you save here, you might spend in Bloomingdales, about 100 steps away.

I think the title says it all. This is a three star review as we went to drink and just happened to eat. The food was overpriced and not particularly spectacular (I had a burger and fries, which was pretty 'meh' to be honest). Had we gone to eat it would have been a two star review but the range...

We stopped in here on a Tuesday for lunch. There is not an overabundance of quick, easy, good lunch spots in this area and it was freezing so we decided to try it. From the first moment you walk in, you know their main business is drinking. It's just a bar with a few tables and stools for those who... More

Unless you're a raging alcoholic there is no reason to consider eating there. The place is really a bar with a smattering of uncomfortable seats for eating. We had the Messy Breakfast Sandwich which lived up to its name of messy and the Huevos Rancheros, both were very disappointing. How can you make flavorless eggs, ask Brinkley's Station as they’ve...

we visited this place recently on a Monday night. it is a clean,smallish, but cozy pub. the lighting is way too dim though, and we pulled out a flashlight to read the menu. the menu is extremely limited, with typical manhattan prices. the grass-fed burger was delicious, and so was the eggplant and chick pea burger. they both came on...
