Cozy, fun, and great escape in SOHO

Tired of the overcapitalized SOHO zone I took the short hike to the Hudson with trepidation, as so many historical bars and restaurants have disappeared within the last few years. But I was relieved to the find the Ear pluckishly unaffected by the gentrification. Had a great steak and eggs brunch, the home fries lacking a little luster, but served promptly in a place with fantastic ambience and charm. I sat for a few hours reading Kessner's Capital City, thinking about all types of people who had crossed the threshold since 1814, and feeling blessed that some of New York still is what made so fascinating.

Simply the best.

The Ear is a fascinating place, completely unassuming..you can walk in in full evening dress or in a linesman's uniform and be treated exactly the same way..food is incredible and incredibly cheap, served till 4 most days. The P.E.I. mussels are always fantastic. The kitchen can't be more than 80 square feet, yet the creations are always good, fresh and different. Best damned burger in town, amazing home potatoes. Bartenders are top-notch and they pour one of the only Imperial (20 oz.) pints of Guinness in town. And you better wait, because they do pour it right...about four minutes minimum. Amazingly beautiful waitresses are always helpful with menu selections. The wooden sidewalk and old mooring cleats are appropriate touches to this storied tavern, formely at the edge of the Hudson (before the dredging and landfill leading to the creation of West Street).

Huh?

Just kiddin! A comfy, unpretentious bar that reminds one of the days when bars looked bars and not overdesigned space-age dens of iniquity. A decent selection of beer and a decently priced menu add "to the love". Supposedly the oldest bar in NYC and judging by the plumbing I tend to agree! Go, enjoy but shhhhh; don't tell anyone about it. Huh?

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
