Fodor's Review

This East Side institution has been dispensing burgers and beer for more than a century. Despite renovations and several owners over the years, the original P. J. Clarke's (there are offshootsin Lincoln Square and Chelsea) maintains the beveled-glass and scuffed-wood look of an old-time saloon. Many of the bartenders and patrons are as much a part of the décor as the light fixtures. More civilized at lunchtime, the bar area heaves with an after-work mob on weekday evenings. Pull up a stool if you can for superlative bar food, like clams casino and the signature burger smothered in creamy béarnaise.
