Sine 1977 this village staple has been serving the local community and celebrities alike. A few blocks from Union Square, Knickerbocker comes highly recommended by members who live in the area. We finally were able to secure a date here, thanks to one of our members knowing the management. The word “Knickerbocker” itself, says “New York” and upon entering, you’ll know you’re in the heart of the Village. Its wood paneled walls sport a wonderful collection of memorabilia with a New York state of mind. Pieces range from rare turn of the century posters to original caricatures by Al Hirschfield. Join for drinks at the 100 year old marble bar where Charles Lindbergh signed his contract to fly across the Atlantic. Zagat rated 22 and says, “Time warps don’t get more lovable than this 1977-vintage Villager, an old-school source of no-surprises Americana that’s solid with warm service. This one is a keeper! A great alternative to NY’s stuffy steakhouses, this long-running Central Village American is a favorite of the over-40 crowd.” Chef Clara O’Marde, started at the Knickerbocker in 1985 and continues to serve tasty dishes to the regulars that come back not once not twice, but that make it a regular weekly dinner. Many celebrities dine here regularly as I myself dined next to Chris Noth on my visit. Our choices include but are not limited to, Caesar salad, shrimp cocktail, fettuccine italian sausage bolognese, Atlantic salmon, grilled chicken paillard, steak frites, BBQ St Louis ribs, house made vegetarian pasta, classic New York cheese cake and individual chocolate soufflé cake. You can upgrade on-site for their well-known 28oz t-bone “porterhouse” for $15.
