    Eric makes the best drinks! I asked for a refreshing gin drink and he made me a muddled blackberry with lemon juice and gin cocktail. Delicious!!

    The place looks all mysterious and exclusive from the outside - like an old boys' club hotel - but the inside is full of nice staff members, a chill atmosphere and great drinks like the Trophy Wife.

    Everything was amazing!!! The rissoto and chicken were the best I've ever had, and the Market Salad and molten chocolate were a close second :-D

    Very cool space in the village, with a warm, eclectic, romantic and trendy ambience. Their cocktails are fantastic too – try the “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” for a post work treat.

    Delicious cocktails made by some of the most attractive bartenders! Dark, historical diggs, good music, good-smelling food.

    Visit this mystique hotel for dinner or drinks. The owner is one of the sweetest and smartest men in the hospitality business! Have the tuna medium rare...extremely delish!

    Arrive early to grab a spot at the bar of this unmarkedjoint. Tip: Try the Trophy Wife cocktail—passionfruit makes everythingbetter (if not richer).

    The restaurant is named after Marie Griffou—the woman who ran a boardinghouse at the same address. It's been said that Mark Twain used to frequent the Greenwich Village brownstone.
