Clara’s is a sports bar in Bushwick, but it’s more for people who like to be sports-adjacent than for Islanders fans who yell “drop your gloves” at the TV every five minutes. There are TVs in the bar area and a projector in the back, but there’s also a pool table, and seating if you want to eat a $10 fried chicken sandwich with Old Bay fries.

JG Melon is an Upper East Side burger institution. It's also the best and cheapest thing you can hit for lunch after the Met.
