    Burgers are very good. The Sunday night lasagna is fantastic. A bit of a tourist trap. Prices are high, but so is the quality of the food.

    The original and classic location. Had the Clarke burger with raw onion. Delicious and worth traveling uptown for the meal.

    Dirty martini and a medium rare burger. Doesn't get much better than that.

    Pricy, but a great after work spot. Lots of good looking businessmen.

    Brick walls, dark wood, old black-and-white photos and the quintessential New York burger. You can have it all right into the wee hours of the morning, just like Sinatra used to do. Read more

    A chill place for a beer, burger, and oysters on the half shell. Good crowd and friendly service.

    Shepherd's pie is phenomenal. Wash it down with 3 pints of Guinness (at least). Preferably in the middle of the day.

    One of the best 'classic New York' bars in town. It certainly has the best personality of any place in East Midtown. Nice mix of old-skool charm and modern(ish) food/drink.

    Jam packed with tourists, PJ Clarkes works for burgers and beers but not much else.

    Blue cheese lovers need to try the BBQ Blue Cheese Burger, it's even better than the Cadillac. Shoe string onion rings are great as well.

    The cheese burger is brilliant! One of my all time favorites. Medium done, it melts in your mouth, and the partially fried pickles were the best part. The fries were excellent too.

    "The Cadillac" is honestly one of the best burgers I've ever had! Reasonable price for a juicy, delicious burger.

    New management completely ruined this place. Perfect example of don't fix what's not broken. Food has gotten worse, more expensive for less value... Bring Back the old pig...
