Of a similar heritage to the Gramercy Tavern (the chef originally at Union Square Café moved to Gramercy Tavern) this is another American restaurant with excellent atmosphere and simple, enjoyable cooking where the ingredients have not been tortured and where ordinary people mingle with the famous.

Thanks to Ivan Klugman for the photos.

    I had lunch here yesterday. The high point (a hugely substantial pork chop cooked perfectly medium on winter veg) was possibly the most satisfying thing I ate all trip. As suggested by the review, excellent ingredients treated well. Calamari and crumble either side were well average - the anchovy mayo supposedly coming with the starter was underpowered. As with many other excellent New York restaurants no reservation required to walk in for lunch if you're passing and don't mind sitting at the bar (which as per normal was fun). For tourists who don't want a tourist lunch this is a godsend as you can mark up your map and just pick whatever is closest when you're out and about.
