(bet. Broadway & 8th Ave.)
This NYC historical landmark in the heart of the Theatre District has been serving up suds and down home pub food since 1892, surviving prohibition by renting the front of its then Rockefeller Center facade to Greek florists, while the Hurley brothers ran a speak-easy in back. Legendary hijinx aside, this hold out bar has been dishing up comfort food since before there was a word for it.
