Ulysses' Restaurant Review

: The execution of many Irish pub-restaurants in New York feels a bit halfhearted, but Ulysses' (dig the synergy between the Greek co-owner and the Irish theme) is hardly a warmed-over effort. The attention to detail starts at the foundation: sandstone imported from County Clare serves as trim, rustic wood beams adorn the ceiling, and the bar itself is a staggering 130-foot-long behemoth. Presumably, the length is necessary to serve over 50 varieties of brews, including Boddington’s and, of course, Guinness. Ulysses' aims to cater to Wall Street types with high-end items like platters of fresh East Coast oysters and clams, but stock and trade brewpub fare comprises the bulk of the menu. That’s not to say there aren’t standouts, like the "steak tidbits" with horseradish sauce, the crisp semolina-crusted calamari, and anything from the raw bar; and any of the filling entrées like chicken potpie or a grilled pork chop would be good choices. And if you don’t find the menu appealing, you can always take the free shuttle to Swift’s or Puck Fair, owned by the same group as Ulysses'.
