    Ask for a side of 21 Sauce, a spicy blend of ketchup, English mustard, Worcestershire, horseradish and white wine, the sauce has been a signature staple for over 60 years. Via CityEats.com Read more

    The chicken hash — a mixture of cubed chicken, cream, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, butter, and sherry — is a real throwback to a different era. It’s pure, pull-no-punches comfort food. Read more

    Ask your waiter about touring the spectacular hidden wine cellar in the basement, which was used to hide booze during Prohibition. It's this place's semi-secret gem.

    The lounge's dark wood paneling, fireplace, Frederic Remington horse paintings, the low lighting, and the men in suits and ties—despite a recent loosening of the dress code—still beckon another age. Read more

    It may be stuffy, but if old-school, Don Draper Manhattan is your thing, there's nowhere better. And much of the food is still quite good. At lunch, get three courses for $24.

    The Wine Cellar Dinner Menu is reserved for private events in an intimate setting, and the resulting food-gasm is incomparable. Hackleback caviar, butter-poached lobster, sautéed duck breast, oh my!

    On everyone's top ten lists. Kicking it old school here will just enhance whatever you decide to do later....Roseland is nearby...always a great time there. Order the cheesecake to go.

    The martini here is an unsung hero of the hip NYC mixology scene—big and dry, like Charles Grodin in drink form, it floats to you in a glass so capacious there ought to be a goldfish swimming in it. Read more

    Prohibition may be over, but the bar remains as intriguing as ever. Pro tip: Take in the large art collection and toys hanging from the ceiling as you sip on a gin rickey. Read more

    Vegetarians should not shy away from this New York tradition. They have a very nice *on menu* vegie plate that doesn't feel like an afterthought. And thank the universe cocktails are still vegetarian.

    Order the burger, get yourself a martini and enjoy classic New York. Steak tartare, Dover sole and off menu potato puffs are also all must orders.

    One of the supposed birthplaces of the Southside cocktail, made with gin, lime, simple and mint. Also nice if you are craving a classic NY experience and throwback to another era.

    We love the decor at 21 Club almost as much as we love the menu. Let us suggest two things. Get dressed up and see "Bethany", then come to the 21 Club Bar!

    The key to power lunching is landing the right table, the left section of the dining room is preferred and the right, known as “Siberia” to it’s regulars, is by no means coveted.

    This place is history, and I go there when I visit New York, at least once a year. Frank Sinatra held court at Table 14. Donald Trump sits on the far left. Wall Street was filmed there.

    More for the atmosphere and its legacy than its food. The Prawn for appetizer is good but nothing too special, and the Amish chicken is a little dry and very mediocre

    Old New York glamour – gentlemen must wear a jacket and no jeans allowed. The service is amazing. Try the ‘21’ Burger.

    Cool history, plenty to look at if your company's boring, and the garlickiest Caesar salad on the planet. I love it that way.
