PS 450 Restaurant Review

: Don’t mistake this Murray Hill establishment for a mere bar or lounge. Nor should you take the giant flat-screen TVs above the bar, constantly flashing sports highlights, as a sign you’re in a sports bar. That’s because PS 450, an atmospheric lounge-like place, serves up better-than-average pub grub in the form of creatively concocted small plates. The mountain of nachos isn’t just nachos: they’re sprinkled with tender short ribs. The juicy sliced sirloin, set on top of creamed spinach which rests on a tiny baguette slice, could be a meal in itself; and the many “pops”---tandoori, mac ‘n’ cheese, buffalo---are savory goodness-on-a-stick and are a crowd favorite. There are several sliders on offer, the best of which is the pulled pork.
