Tavern on Jane Street
This is a neighborhood pub, off the radar for most reviewers, a boisterous bar with about 25 tables and some supremely great wine choices. The restaurant feels like something that Paul Revere might have eaten at – lots of brick, wood and low ceilings. So charming, in fact, that you should break the rule and bring a Trojan on the first date, because you’re getting laid if you have half a game and start the night here.
I recommend the burger, which crushes those across the street at Corner Bistro and is as hot as any other beef in the burger porn world.
Tavern on Jane, 31 8th Ave, (212) 675-2526
