On the surface, Lady’s looks a little like another generic spot serving pizza, pasta, fluke crudo, and steak tartare. And it sort of is. They serve those things - but at least they do them pretty well. This isn’t really a place you should travel across the city for, but it’s great to know about if you need to get a last-minute meal near the Barclays Center. It’s large, the vibes are perfect for date night, and you should be able to walk in a get a table without much trouble. Order some pizza or pasta, and everyone should be happy.
