Food and drink
You'd think that because this is a restaurant/bar the quality would be poor... au contraire. The meat is 100 per cent USDA certified beef. The bartenders only serve craft beer and wine.
Besides the angus burgers, the restaurant serves a vegetarian-friendly falafel burger. For the meat ones, try the Black Jack, which has chili, monterey jack and jalapenos. The Iron Horse has horseradish cheddar and onions on two all-beef patties.
The ambience is no-nonsense and no-frills. It's a real hole in the wall, but everyone is welcome and the main crowd is young and hip. But avoid going there on hot days, the restaurant doesn't have air conditioning so you'll sweat.
The servers and bartenders are very friendly. Service can be a bit crazed during peak times but you won't wait long for your food.
In Alphabet City in the East Village. This is a quieter part of the usually bustling East Village.
Prices are fairly inexpensive, dinner for two runs to about $40.
