Tavern on Jane looks, from the outside, like the type of cozy English pub you’d expect to find on every fourth street corner in London. Upon stepping inside, it fits exactly the same description – except, beyond the standard fish and chips (which are, of course, on the menu) this place has – unexpectedly – some of the consistently best food I’ve had in the city.
Every dish my friends and I have tried – from the salads to the seafood to the pizza, burgers and chicken – has far exceeded our expectations. Beyond the menu, it’s a fantastic spot for casual dates, brunch, lunch, dinner, celebrity sightings, first dates and people watching.
Good For Casual Dates/First Dates: The atmosphere is super chill, the experience is unique for NYC and, as previously mentioned, the food is delicious. Plus, the bar area is open until 4 a.m. so if it goes well, the conversation can easily continue well into the night.
Good For Celebrity Sightings: It is, by no means, a “hotspot” but celebs who live in the neighborhood can often be spotted enjoying a quiet, (hopefully) uninterrupted meal with friends.
Good For People Watching: In some areas of the restaurant, you can be packed in pretty tight. However – while, at other spots, this can translate into being uncomfortable – here it really just means you can pick up on some hilariously entertaining (and sometimes enlightening) conversations.
