Employees Only Restaurant Review

: Established by former employees of New York restaurants like Lucky Strike, Pravda, Tavern on the Green and Schiller's Liquor Bar, Employees Only is a cozy communal-owned eatery-bar. An Art Deco flavor emanates from wood paneling with long, narrow vertical backlights and rounded walls. Because many of the employees-owners have Central and Eastern European backgrounds, the menu draws from some less common cuisines, from Serbia to Sweden. Crispy skate paprikás comes with spätzle, while the Serbian charcuterie platter boasts some of the best chicken liver pâté this side of the Adriatic. Don't miss the cocktail list, which is one of the most intriguing in lower Manhattan.
