Great food and service. We loved it. For NYC and such high quality food this place is very reasonable on price. Make sure to try the lamb if you like it.

There are business people in suits and families in jeans and sneakers. The restaurant itself is not elegant but clubby in feel. You will be one of the more dressed up couples but you shouldn't feel out of place. It is... More

Yes, we saw children when we went and they found the museum atmosphere of the old pipes so interesting, and were also taken on a tour by the staff.
