P.J. Clarke's Restaurant Review

: A key drinking spot on St. Patrick's Day, P.J. Clarke's may now have a raw bar, an upstairs dining room called the Sidecar boasting a 280-bottle wine list and swank dishes like grilled lobster, but unless you're a regular, you'd be hard-pressed to notice. A year-long gutting and refurbishment was done just right, preserving the venue’s 1890 patina. Other things haven't changed: the burger-and-potpie menu (although prices have crept up), and the shoulder-to-shoulder crush of post-office pick-up artistry. Burgers include The Cadillac, which sports American cheese, double-smoked bacon, onion, and bread and butter pickles. If you're at the great jukebox figuring out if you want to hear Sinatra's New York, New York, Blondie's Heart of Glass or Jimmy Durante doing a husky Inka Dinka Doo, the people squeezing past you will force you to literally embrace the music as you make your choices.
