    Staff Pick! Richard (Membership): As in Vanderbilt?... Clubby and friendly old world charm abounds. You can always count on the American standard fare.

    $1 Oysters and $4 drafts during happy hour - slurp! The oysters are usually Blue Points, and they always have an interesting selection of beers on tap. Cocktails are generally tasty, too.

    Get the mac and cheese and ask for "extra bacon." Also get a perfect rye Manhattan.

    Lots of good food, and contrary to comments, I have gotten the 4sq special recently. The grilled cheese though is subpar. The apples arencaramelized and there isn't enough cheese to hold it together

    So the oysters, wine and staff cannot be beat! But recently they changed their menu (which used to be awesome and tasty) to a bar food menu... :-( I am hoping the owners realize this was a mistake!
