City Hall Restaurant
New York, NY 10013
Village Voice's Description
Anything that swims is recommended at this Wall Streeteras hangout that seeks to re-create the (mainly imaginary) two-fisted eating halls of yesteryear. The trio of barrel herring--creamed, onioned, and carawayed--is so striking you can ignore the dull potato salad in the middle. Pan roasts, raw oysters, shrimp cocktails, and, especially, she-crab soup were all flawless, as was the touted burger, much too good for its garnish of iceberg and wooden supermarket tomato. Skip the low-on-flavor lamb saddle and signature Delmonico steakaunimproved by its mantle of blue cheeseain favor of any of the daily grilled fish.
Tips from foursquare
Lunch menu spans from the burger ($16), a blend of short rib and brisket served on a homemade onion bun, to Delmonico steak ($42), a dry-aged rib eye topped with a dollop of Iowa's Maytag blue cheese.
Order the raw seafood tower for 2 or 4 - It's spectacular.

The service is incredible. The food was amazing! Its got a nice vibe to it...definitely a classy place for a lunch in. The chef is super friendly as well as the staff.
This is the go-to power-lunching spot for top city officials. On the menu: oysters on the half shell; Ahi ginger tuna burger, a nice selection of entree salads and classic surf-and-turf dishes.
