Not Accepted


A Formica-clad shrine to smoked fish and everything else that defines the dying art of Jewish appetizing. No one's stopping you from ordering cheese blintzes, chopped liver, even caviar. But that's not why you're here. You're here to savor Barney's raison d'etre: the holy trinity of sturgeon, smoked salmon, or Nova scrambled with eggs and onion, with an H&H bagel and cream cheese on the side.

Cash Only

The restaurant is cash only on Sat. and Sun.
