The original Chumley’s was a speakeasy that opened during Prohibition, and the West Village bar was a great a place to hang. Then the building fell apart, they had to close it, and Chumley’s reopened in 2017 as a restaurant, and it’s just fine. The food is on the heavier side with stuff like cassoulet and steak tartare, and it’s all pretty decent - but, for the prices, it’s hard to justify a night out here. The burger is $29, for example, and it comes with more bone marrow than you’ll actually want. Although we do like the space. It’s sort of like a dark, old-school country club, and there are pictures of authors everywhere. When we went, there also happened to be an in-house historian walking around quizzing people on literary portraits, and we correctly named both Arthur Miller and Norman Mailer.

We’ve got to admit that even though we aren’t the target audience for Sticky's Finger Joint, we kind of love this place. It's basically stoner food at it’s best and most ridiculous, with a menu filled with genius chicken finger flavor creations.
Pearl Oyster Bar
Almost everything on Pearl Oyster Bar menu is fantastic, but what really keeps us coming back though is the fried oyster sandwich.

The Spaniard is a big West Village gastropub that’s a fun place to get drinks with a group, and a less enjoyable spot to eat elevated bar food.
Old Town Bar
Over a century of Big Apple history lies within these walls, as does a pretty excellent burger. Come have a beer and pretend your horse is outside.
