Temple Bar Restaurant Review

: Named for Dublin's restored nightlife district, this NoHo bar would be, ironically enough, too sleek and hip to be a part of the neighborhood back in the Irish capital. This quasi-sophisticated drink den is frequented by a sharply dressed mixed crowd of business types and artists. Nuzzle up to the dark cherry wood bar with a pint of beer or take a cocktail, preferably their noteworthy Cosmopolitan, back to one of the cozy booths. Better-than-average bar bites, such as the grilled chicken BLT, salt and pepper calamari, or ginger-glazed spare ribs, will help fill the tummy when you decide to stay for another round.
