While this 1937 setting has been restored and refreshed, nothing here changes and that is its beauty. This quintessential New York tavern is still surrounded by dark wood, checkerboard tiled floors, and those framed caricatures. The astute service team handles the crowds and energy as well as ever-they even don the same white-aproned livery seen in Mad Men. It's that kind of place. The menu's dedication to bistro classics and New York steakhouse fare ensure its continued longevity. A thick slice of their mosaic-like terrine of oxtail, poached leek, and carrot surrounding a foie gras center is timelessly good. Those warm platters of juicy, tender, appetizingly charred New York strip steaks propped up against a bouquet of peppery watercress shine with simple, perfect flavor. An oval cast-iron pan of slow-cooked pork shank is rendered tender, luscious, and dark as a prune. Piping-hot pommes aligot are just what mashed potatoes were always meant to be: cheesy, creamy, and obscenely decadent. Velvety bittersweet chocolate soufflés and towering wedges of bright white coconut cakes stacked with three layers of pastry cream, tart crème fraîche, and coconut shavings are brazen crowd-pleasers.

      Pros

      I hadn't been here since the late 80's when I lived in the Village. The transformation from a neighborhood place to a first class restaurant is amazing. The server was very knowledgable on everything--from wine to entrees to cheese. the gravlax appetizer was the best I've ever had. melts in your mouth. I've never had a better New York Strip steak anywhere. amazing flavor and perfectly done. Anna potatoes were fabulous. Don't miss the soufflé. Overall, the only better meals I've had in New York have been at Le Bernadin.

      Cons

      Room is still very noisy just like I remembered. Two top tables are right next to each other. While not rushed it was clear that they expected to turn tables over within 90 minutes. We were not in a hurry and our server needed to check and make certain we could stay for dessert. the food was so wonderful none of this mattered.
