I happened upon this restaurant through Groupon while planning a trip to New York. Let me tell you, the staff for the msot part (excep the nice Asian bartender) was condescending and incompetent. While the advertisement said that many celebrity-type people come through this "high end" sports bar, I didn't see any. Appparently, they must come so frequently and spend so much money while they are there at everyone at this "Don't Believe the Hype" Lounge forgets about who actually are their bread and butter. I waited almost an hour for my food (salad with a chicken breast) with only 10+ people in the bar. When I finally did get my salad, the chicken was over done and over-season salted! Ick!
