Fodor's Review

This East Side institution has been dispensing burgers and beer for more than a century. Despite renovations and several different owners over the years, the original P. J. Clarke's (there's also an offshoot in Midtown West, on 63rd Street at Broadway) maintains the beveled-glass and scuffed-wood look of an old-time saloon. Many of the bartenders and patrons are as much a fixture as the decor. 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.
