Description

Village Voice's Description

Unlike its cross-country branches, P.J. Clarke's in Midtown is the original saloon, established in 1884. It's the one where Frank Sinatra joked about the urinals, the one featured on the cover of a 1971 issue of The New Yorker, the one currently surrounded by skyscrapers. The bar itself is ornamented in antique goodies, such as a framed portrait of a beardless Lincoln side-by-side with one of Kennedy. Though P.J. Clarke's has gone commercial, the historic, weathered charm of the original is something that can't be replicated. Order its acclaimed burger and some oysters from the raw bar and pay your dues with a glass of gin on the rocks.

  • The Corcoran Group on 05/21/10

    Grab some fresh oysters from the raw bar and a burger with fried onion strings.

  • New York Habitat on 11/30/11

    The burgers here are awesome and they're made even better when paired with the onion strings. Good for a casual lunch or dinner. Keep an eye out for the old school bathrooms as well.

  • Rich G. on 10/25/10

    Get the Cadillac Burger, named by Nat King Cole, because he called it the "Cadillac of burgers". He was right, it is one of the best burgers in NYC. Throw in some home fries and you'll be very happy.
