The Long Island Bar looks kind of like a diner from 1950, and despite its name, it’s equal parts restaurant and bar. You can either stop by and drink a few gimlets, or you can get a booth and have some grilled trout, cheese curds, or cornbread with chicken liver mousse. What you really want, though, is the burger. It has two patties, a squishy bun, and an almost excessive amount of cheese. Bring a few friends, and start your Friday night here.

Holy Ground is a below-ground Tribeca spot that looks like an old-school steakhouse, but actually specializes in slow smoked meats.
The Grill is the revamp of the legendary Four Seasons restaurant, run by the people behind Carbone. It’s very similar, very expensive, and worth it.
Everything at Kingside is overpriced and underwhelming. Spare yourself and only go if you feel like checking out the beehive of glammed-up female and single rich dude activity.
