Diner (located on Nassau St in the Financial District): Although "Roe" was a lovely lady, her service was a bit flakey and the food at the Diner wasn't good. After two trips there this weekend, I decided I probably won't return although they serve up a good chocolate milk. In a neighborhood with few brunch spots, sometimes its just better to cook some bacon and eggs.
Lillies (17th St Union Square) A good spot to grab a beer after work. Gets pretty crowded on the weekends. Decent beer selection, but really nothing too special.
Tonic (29th and 3rd Ave) Crowded, but a decent spot if you want to "dougie". Bring girls because this spot fills up with more dudes than Brother Jimmys.
