J.G. Melon Restaurant Review

: For more than 40 years, this neighborhood pub and restaurant has been serving tasty burgers to Upper East Siders, who also pack the place for club sandwiches, chili and cheesecake. Don't let the watermelon d├ęcor deter you. For downtown folk, there's also a J.G. Melon on Bleecker and MacDougal Streets in Greenwich Village.
