This place is a MUST! I've come here on several occasions both during the week and weekends and I've always had good experiences here. Pros: So many I'm trying to think where to begin: The decor is amazing and so authentic as this building use to be a power plant and was built in 1910. The designers stayed true to the original layout and elaborated on the interior design. I also like the fact that they are not playing the Top 40's and have great music along with the silent films projected on the walls. Parking is near by and really cheap and it is walking distance to the Metro Redline. Although pricey, the drinks are stiff and flavorful. We ordered The Edison platter which was like a sampler platter with calamari, wings, etc. and it was delicious. Our host was very attentive and although we didn't reserve a table he was able to accommodate us. Great service, great drinks & food, good for celebrations with friends or just happy hour during the week! Cons: Can't think of one... :)

Ok im being a little generous here and think this place probably deserves 3.5 maybe even 3 stars but I must admit, for manhattan its a good deal. While the rest of meatpacking grows ever more pretentious and snobby, the park is a rather chill spot. Perfect for a date or just a place to start a long nite with some dinner and drinks. The bar is rather trendy and appealing, while the dining areas are just classy enough while still maintaing a relaxed ambiance. The bathroom is the only glaring pitfall of this restaurant, it reminded me of the subway bathroom brawl scene in the Warriors. But unless you were considering trying to get the hucklebuck from a Chelsea methhead here, this shouldnt be a problem. Service was actually very good... the food was decent and the crowd rather eclectic.

Made a quick pit stop here on an early Saturday afternoon. So, here we are, a motley little crew of four - two USC-clad fans, and two CAL-clad fans. . . wearing backward fitteds, too (except for me - can't go messin' up the doo). Yeah, we stood out like hookers in church. . . but, weren't treated like assholes. It's a nice looking place, with a nice looking patio, and a nice looking bartender. I, myself, don't mind frequenting a place where all the guys are bound to be hotter than me. . . all lookie, no touchy - Hey! eye candy is good for the soul.
