P.J. Clarke’s is where we go and have a martini when we want to feel like characters in AMC’s Mad Men. Not only do we love the bar scene, but in a city where chefs often pile ten things on one burger, PJ’s classic normal-sized cheeseburger is a happy relief. Always go with the classics here – Shrimp Cocktail, Crabcakes, French Onion Soup, Iceberg Wedge Salad, Classic Turkey Club, Cheeseburger and the New York Sirloin. Make a Reservation.

“Fifty years from now, PJ Clarke’s will probably be open.” – David Burke
