Harold’s used to be a place called Harold’s Meat + Three - but they dropped the meat-and-three thing, and now they have a slightly different concept. These days, this spot at the bottom of the Arlo Hotel serves a few different pastas and salads, some small plates, and a bunch of different entrees ranging from salmon to fried chicken. Just about everything seems like it’s a little more expensive than it should be, but the food is solid, and they make a pretty good fried chicken sandwich. That said, unless you have some family in town and you need an inoffensive place where you can get a table last-minute, there isn’t really a compelling reason to choose this over other spots nearby.

A classic New York City gem, still standing from a time when horse and buggies were bringing people here to drink. Eat the chicken club sandwich, drink a Stella from the tap, and imagine that you’re about to head off for a sweet vacation aboard the Titanic.
