Landmark rustic pub’s charm still intact. Old-school patrons and birds looking for lively talk make it worth a beer or three, selected from a fairly impressive variety of brews. Energetic and historic, kind of like your favorite grandpa. Dates back to the Civil War and once claimed O. Henry as its alcoholic writer-in-residence. Huge, gut-filling portions of upscale bar food make the summer sidewalk tables a hot Gramercy commodity.
