New York, NY 10004
Village Voice's Description
A former whorehouse, Bridge CafA(c) is more interesting than the original glimpse of the red building would have you believe. The long bar serves as the perfect place to rest and have a beer or a glass of wine; if you prefer, sit at a small, circular table and order a meal. Located beneath the Brooklyn Bridge.
Tips from foursquare
This building dates back to 1794 and was opened as a porter house in 1847, making it New York City's oldest bar. Be on the lookout for pirate ghosts who are said to frequent the bar.
The oldest food and drink place in NYC, and it’s a hidden gem! Start with the corn fritters and then the fried panko crusted chicken. Be sure to make reservations.
Get the sea scallops with bacon and bourbon infused jam on a bed of goat cheese grits.
Skip dinner; proceed directly to the Southern Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie.
This cozy hideaway is nestled under the Brooklyn Bridge. Signature dish: buffalo steak w/ buttermilk mashed potatoes. You can get our free Downtown dining guide @ http://www.downtownny.com/mapsguides/
