American Restaurant in New York, NY, United States
Hidden behind a fake pawn shop, this consistently mobbed LES bi-level-er plies you with enough food/drink-fuel to match the energy levels it maintains. This's kinda the perfect staging area for heading elsewhere once you've had your fill.
Venture into this subterranean joint and be prepared to be schooled in the ways of house-specialty pulque. Be sure to down flights of mescal, or make your way through their epic list of tequilas. Oh right, also, there's dinner.
With a partying option already built in downstairs and fortifying options like lobster pizza, this a great place to start or end a night. Also: if you don't order it, you'll probably be the only person there not drinking Champagne.
Old-school and kitschy in the best possible way, there's often a grownup-bar-mitzvah vibe at this Best Steakhouse in NYC, thanks to a live keyboard player and bottles of vodka that're delivered to your table frozen inside of giant blocks of ice.
Japanese Restaurant in New York, NY, United States
From EMM Group and Chef Hung Huynh, this multi-level, Asian-influenced seafood spot sports a rooftop that's basically a club already -- it's perfect for a rowdy encounter with a crispy white snapper or king crab spaghetti.
