Island RestaurantAmerican • New York, United States
Food good, service bad.
Software engineer, general geek and bruised snowboarder.
Chilled North African setup, try and the baked eggs at brunch, very good.
Literally a spit and sawdust place, it's a must go on any Manhattan tour. Order the light beer, or dark beer. That's the only choice you have. It's cheap, but cash only.
Decent neighbourhood Thai and good value for money.
Decent burgers and a good selection of beers with local sports teams on the TVs.
Cool cocktail bar, and the only one I've seen that serves port and a decent sherry so far.
Good cheap sushi, a rare sight. Want something different, the beef sesame sandwich is very good. Don't forget to order your free miso soup with any order.
Pricy drinks, plastic glasses, great views and pumping house music. Stop by for one or two, but that'll be enough.
$25 for a bucket of (canned) Corona, great views but ridiculously loud music on a Saturday night.
Nice way to end a trip along the Highline. Odd 'tickets for beer' policy though.
Huge ramen portions may leave you tempted to skip the buns, but you'd be missing out. Try the spicy shrimp bun.
Get the strawberry and lemon truffles instead of desert and enjoy them on the bench outside.
Good brunch, get there early if the sun is out to get an outdoor table though. One free drink with brunch entree. Get the guacamole to share too. Chips and booze for breakfast? Oh, go on then.
Get a bucket of beer, sit in the sun and admire the view.
Very nice, although surprised to be charged per person on the cheese plate.
