Just what the hungry, pen-pushing phalanx needs after deadline, another decision at this upscale literati enclave. Should I unwind in the main floor News Room, or sit down for a more formal affair—including dining on continental favorites like filet mignon and roasted Atlantic salmon—in the upstairs Press Room? Sporting twelve plasma screens and back-lit whisky bottles behind the mile-long mahogany bar, the News Room is like an oversized den that Mayor Bloomberg would design if he was best buds with Jimmy Kimmel. That may work for some "junkies," but for those who seek a respite from the media blitz, grab a pint and park it in the Press Room overlooking the avenue. However, the best bet on either floor is the traditional Irish breakfast.
