Eating in NYC: Day Three

Let's call this "the day we spent three hours at Macy's." :)

With multiple shopping bags in tow, we headed off to find a lunch spot (and hopefully a place to watch some of the Georgia-Missouri game). I spotted a Pig 'N' Whistle, an Irish pub and restaurant that I remembered from another location that was by my office.

We parked ourselves in front of one of the many TVs, and they graciously turned on the game for us (me). 

The extensive menu (don't you love their logo?) featured classic Irish dishes, but I noticed the sliders on the "game day" menu and decided that sounded perfect with a pint of beer. 

The sliders were pretty standard...but the "house-cut fries" were what really caught my attention. (Think Five Guys.) Delicious! 

Overall, the Pig 'N' Whistle offers quality food and a fun atmosphere...great stop for lunch!

When we started planning this trip, we knew we wanted one dinner to be at a steakhouse. One member of our group specifically requested Uncle Jack's, which has a location in Midtown.

I ordered a Caesar salad and a 10-ounce prime filet mignon, cooked medium-rare and served in its own juices. Uncle Jack's dry ages its beef for 28-35 days, and steaks are charred in an 1800-degree infrared broiler. 

It doesn't get much better than a well-cooked steak...and Uncle Jack delivered. Whether or not you go to this specific place, a visit to NYC must include a night at a steakhouse.

  1. Although I don't believe I approve of the Brush Script on the awning of Pig 'n' Whistle, I do approve of the fact that they used two apostrophes to represent the word "and" in the middle of their name.
