Ended our walking tour of lower Manhattan historic sites by having an early dinner at this tavern. We sat in the long room and felt like we were back in colonial times. Discovered as I walked to find the restroom that there are several differently decorated dining and bar rooms. One particular smaller bar had a roaring fire and comfy... More

Went here for lunch after Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Most of Manhattan is laid out in a grid,but not lower Manhattan. It was a little hard to find but worth it. The motif reflects the historical setting of the building. I had the clam chowder, perfect for a cold, wet day. With lunch came passes for the... More

If you like historic, warm atmosphere, this is a famous spot--and don't settle for the lounge/bar. This time around, we got good service--but slower than usual in what seemed an under-staffed weekend. My (chicken) meal was just okay, but that's not the norm. Fun, Irish waitress added to the night, as did the helpful maitre d' during our unexpected wait... More

Although this restaurant looks and sounds like a charming find in the WTC Neighborhood, we did not enjoy our meal, unfortunately. The tavern was quite empty which should have been our clue. First, the Pinchos appetizer was a disappointment. Our steak dinners left a lot to be desired in both size and preparation detail. The waitstaff was apologetic when told... More

Whether you come to eat or appreciate the location for its history you won't be unhappy, not many places have the historical pedigree this building does (Sons of Liberty, George Washington, first US Congress up the block-many ate here or FALN bombing) although the building has survived many fires, renovations, and additions so it's not the "same place" it's as...

This is always a must stop for me when I visit NYC. I love the historical aspect but also the food is quite good. This time I had the chicken pot pie that was the best I have ever eaten. The puffed crust somewhat like a thin croissant and dress veggies with big chunks of chicken so yummy. My spouse... More

Jazz brunch was great. We sat in the bar area, bartenders were attentive and had great drink suggestions. Food was amazing. We had the pretzel as an app and I had the mac and cheese with bacon (healthy, right?). Both were delicious. Check out the brunch if you're in the mood for an old pub with great food and drink.

We had 9 people in our group all family. We were served very well with no hitches. Our food came out hot and delicious. A little slow for drinks but no big deal.

We visited here after our ferry trip to Ellis Island. The hostess was not super friendly and told us that she was not sure that she could seat us in a 1/2 empty restaurant when we had a reservation. After arguing with her, we were seated. The cocktails were great and we enjoyed our lunch. I had the pot pie... More

We are history buffs and love to find unique places to visit that might not be on the major tourist trail. This absolutely fits the bill! We reserved a table for an 11:00 lunch, but when we arrived the restaurant was empty, which allowed us to enjoy the beautiful and cozy atmosphere. It was so warm and inviting. We really... More

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
