The Palm Too has been open since 1973, and it looks like it hasn’t changed much since then. It’s an old-fashioned steakhouse with white tablecloths and walls covered in caricatures of loyal customers, and it’s a solid place to bring someone who wants a classic NYC experience that’s still convenient to the train. The lightly charred steaks are excellent, the food is otherwise mostly just fine, and everything is a little pricey. But it’s a unique spot that feels like a brief trip back to the time when people wore hats to work and drank martinis at lunch.

Head spinning after a long day of getting dragged around Soho with the female? Find salvation in a crisp Blue Point Toasted Lager draft and steak frites at Jane. It’ll help restore the equilibrium. The predecessor to fratty East Village favorite, The Smith, Jane is its slightly more sophisticated older sister.
A nice, big Bushwick restaurant with interesting pastas. It's not quite a destination, but it's a nice addition to the neighborhood.
