The 13 Most Iconic New York City Bars and Restaurants
Some things never change. And some, like these establishments, never should.
One of the best things about New York is how it’s ever-evolving—not just keeping up with the times, but defining the curve as it goes. And yet, once you’ve watched the last mom-and-pop left on your block be replaced by yet another big box store, there’s some comfort to be taken in the old standbys where time has stood still since the day they first opened. These 13 New York establishments have committed to keeping every detail intact, to the point where sitting down at a table can feel like stepping into a time machine (where the prices match current-day inflation, that is). We picked the best places in town where you can get a taste of classic New York.
