Village Voice's Description

Just above Washington Square Park sits Knickerbocker Bar & Grill, an unassuming bar that offers much more than you’d expect from a restaurant on University. While the bartenders mix a pretty mean martini, the main selling points are the extensive brunch, lunch, and dinner menus, all available for takeout or delivery. And, though not overly classy, Knickerbocker Bar & Grill manages to mix a relaxed atmosphere with elevated classic American food that ranges from oysters to shell steak to St. Louis-style ribs and entirely housemade desserts. They’ve got cobblers, sorbets, pies, cheesecakes—everything you could want in a place that also offers an 18-year-old Glenfiddich served by a welcoming guy who knows more about single malts than your typical grad student bartender. --Shane Barnes

Tips from foursquare

  • Village Voice on 11/08/10

    The Village Voice voted this Best Restaurant Bar in our Best Of New York Poll!

  • The Corcoran Group on 11/01/11

    Not as stuffy or expensive as other steakhouses in the city, but just as delicious. Get the T-bone with sides of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Save room for their famous cheese cake.

  • Jeff B. on 03/14/09

    Order the T-Bone with Fried Onions...a staple of my childhood.

  • Peter S. on 04/24/11

    The Knick has THE best Beet Salad I've ever tasted... and I order it in every restaurant I go to. Such a good restaurant to have in the neighborhood, always busy.

  • David S. on 05/07/10

    T-Bone. Trust me.
