I haven't seen anything on the message board about this very oldie, so I thought I'd say something about the prix fixe meal at $23.95 or so, appetizer, entree, and dessert-admittedly, the choices are limited, but they are perfectly acceptable.
The current appetizer is a marvellous gravlax at something like $9.75.
Not to mention that the place is a real time traveller, complete with the gas lighting at ca. 7 pm.
It's somewhat stodgy, it's not Williamsburgh or Smith Street, but it's not bad at all. The martinis are fine, and the wines by the glass not bad, especially when the waiter shoos you away from them and brings you a more-than-decent California Chardonnay.
It's not everybody's plat du jour, but it might be worth the trip. We've done a rehearsal dinner there for my son, and it was received rapturously by the non-NY crowd.
