Foursquare Tips

  • This place gets too crowded and noisy. Find another after work bar with better food and better service.
  • The hitachino nest white ale is a must try here. Expensive, but not easy to find in nyc (trader joes has it too but not too many other places)
  • Saturday night opera is the very best live entertainment in NYC for the price. Great value with amazing talent and an overall good time. Highly recommended by me.
  • Watered down drinks galore.
  • I ordered moules frites in a white sauce. They gave me so many mussels I didn't know what to do. They are delicious and you should order them immediately.
  • Excellent Belgian beer selection.
  • A great place to grab a seriously strong martini, in a quiet atmosphere, on a weekend afternoon. One of the few places in midtown that I would recommend.

  • Only good bar in midtown
  • see Tom he will take good care of you at the bar
  • Go upstairs to Taci Opera Cafe. Its wonderful
  • Not the same without Reese
  • Popular after work spot for the Midtown office crowd
  • Saturday opera
  • Apres work fun.
  • Less French and more sports bar. A fairly nice atmosphere inside. The Long Island iced tea was massive and not very nice.
  • Popular business lunch location in midtown. Good vibes and ambience. Food is bistro fare without flair.
  • Huge space! Good for groups or reserving one of their spaces
  • Nice place, friendly, but slow bar. If you are trying to get your drink on, it might take a long time. I would suggest pre-drinking.
  • No happy hour, but cool ambiance and deco.
