The Old Town Bar Restaurant

If you're looking for a hip joint to grab a burger in Manhattan, head to The Old Town Bar Restaurant on 18th Street. We, the writing staff of YesButNoButYes, shared a meal and a few laughs there last night.

The place opened in 1892. During prohibition, she was a speak-easy. I'm told the still working dumbwaiters were used to hide the hooch when a raid was coming. It was also a men's only club for a time, women were allowed upstairs. Hence, the woman's loo is upstairs.

The burgers are great. Though last night I had the tuna melt. A top-notch tuna melt.

It's my kind of joint...
