The original PJ Clarke’s has been serving great burgers in Midtown East since 1884, but the only views you’ll get at that location are of a T-Mobile store and people carrying briefcases like footballs as they run to catch a train out of Grand Central. If you want the same burgers (we like the smoked bacon one best) and red-checkered tablecloths, but overlooking a yacht harbor on the Hudson, head to the one in Battery Park City.

Don't make the trek down to Gowanus just for Runner & Stone, but if you want a reliable meal in the neighborhood, go for it.
