Hudson Yards Cafe proprietor Jimmy Reardon understands meat. A born and bred New Yorker, Reardon grew up in the Village, absorbing the knowledge of both his father and brother, both in the meat business. That know-how translates into char-grilled succulence on the Yards’ menu. With a flame-kissed exterior and flavor to spare, the restaurant’s Blackened Sirloin Tip Tidbits prove why they were a mainstay at Reardon’s longtime but now defunct pub, Chelsea Commons. Concerning other ingredients, the Yards keeps it in the neighborhood by bringing in supplies from fellow city purveyors like Trio Bakery and the Artisanal Cheese Center. Fish from local fishmongers and French-press coffee are yet more reasons to venture beyond the excellent burgers and steak here. Period mirrors and book jackets decorate the smoky ocher walls, keeping the feel comfortably unfussy. And the bar is expansive, and the menu fairly priced, pleasing both the Javits crowd and the area business people who flood the Yards for lunch, dinner, and happy hour.Happy Hour
