Stopped in after a day in the office. Had 2 drafts and a Rueben. The bartender was friendly, the food was OK. Solid pub, kind of quiet but it was Monday. Would go again for a burger or sandwich and a beer.

Could not provide menu listed ..had lost our reservation... Seated us and prolonged period of time for a drink.. Food came before drinks- no water,etc. Food was good but service entirely too slow...

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.

of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
