Great selection of beers and whisky/whiskey in a huge old building that used to be a ships chandlers. It’s at 170 John Street which is opposite the sailing ship on the South Street Seaport with ideal access to Battery Park. Ground Zero. Liberty and Ellis...Island Tours. The staff were lovely and very attentive. We used the place twice, it would have been three times, but social media and the website said it was open on Sunday. The sign on the door said closed Sundays. There are 4 steps outside and the toilets are down a flight of stairs, there doesn’t appear to be any visible disabled access. The building is lovely but the lighting is very dim, my partner used her phone torch to read the menu. I was closer to the bar which was preferable to me. Our first night was a drinking night as food had been eaten at the hotel. The second night, we both had steak and chips which was lovely, although steak knives would have been useful. This is New York City so the prices match, on our visit there was a party upstairs so we used the basement bar. There are 2 additional floors above the main bar. I keep going back to the bar, not literally as we were sat next to it, our bar tender never missed the chance to check up on us for refills, snacks or anything else. The service was excellent. Thank you.More

We visited in Nov 2019. We had reservations and were promptly seated at a comfortable table in the bar, by a window. Our server took our order and we didn't see her again until she presented the check. Others brought the food and cleared dishes....No one bothered to ask how our food was. I told a member of the waitstaff that the crouton in my French onion soup was burned and I couldn't eat it. At $14 a bowl, you would expect decently prepared food. The appetizers, especially the artichoke pizzella, were quite tasty. I was told the prices for the area were reasonable. The seating was very comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was the French onion soup, and that the waitstaff didn't care.More

On the city’s lower east side, The Trading Post (170 John St.) is a gem! Literally across the street from the NY Maritime Museum, we dined at The Trading Post... grazing on appetizers and a couple dinner entrees and will go back as often as...we can. It occupies three floors in a refurbished building... in the basement... a whiskey bar... packed the night we were there. On the third floor... their special events space and on the ground floor a warm inviting bar and dining room. John Higgins, one of the owners, made us feel like family. And the food???? Sautéed Shishito peppers... and a burrata... both awesome! A scallop and fresh asparagus main course and a ‘sticky toffee pudding’ for dessert that was over the top! It is a gem!More

Went on a weeknight with about 30 people attending a conference. First, we were in a rustic basement bar area with lots of wood and open beams. It was dark, but well serviced by the staff. Then we were moved up to the second floor,...which we had to ourselves. The staff was very prompt again and the prix fixe menu was open enough to have something for everyone. The house wine went well with the food, the food was well prepared and presented (and tasted quite good), and the ambiance was a lovely. The second floor was a perfect place for a group like ours. It was setup like a spacious home library and was completely separate from other patrons. I'd definitely recommend it for similar functions. The one very minor negative was that the basement bar area was VERY dark. It was trendy, but not really what I prefer.More

Interesting restaurant, the dark wood interior and low lighting levels gave it an interesting feel, but harder to read the menu. Good range of food and prices on the menu, all of which was tasty and decent servings. Staff were very friendly and helpful. A...good choice if your in the area.More

Had dinner here on the evening of the 4th July. The staff were amazing as we arrived an hour early due to it being July ,4th and they seated us straight away. We had an amazing Irish girl who looked after us and she could...not of been better. Food and drinks were amazing and they kept our table all night even when we went outside to watch the fireworks which again we had a fantastic view from the front of the restaurant. This place was a total find for 4th of July can not recommended it highly enough.More
