One of Keith McNally's first, and coolest, restaurants, this downtown brasserie still has exactly the same Parisian shabby-chic vibe as it did when it opened, and while it's since be eclipsed by Odeon, Balthazar, and Pastis, its intimacy has something the others lack. The steak frites couldn't be any better at any of them, or the other bistro standards either.
Worth A Try! – We happened upon this place purely by accident and were pleased with the results. Other than being a little crowded and a bit overpriced, the atmosphere is filled with energy (and the "beautiful people" of course) and the food was surprising good! I only tried a simple dish of spinach ravioli in a light oil and garlic sauce, but it actually faired better than most NYC Italian joints I've tried similar dishes at. I would definitely go back -- if only for some of those exotic martinis on the blackboard.
Caz to the Max – Lucky Strike is a great casual place to just grab a bite to eat. Yeah the crowd can take it a bit seriously, but it shouldn't. Great food, great decor, great service. I recommend it! Just ignore the trendy wannabes.
great burger! – haven't been here in a long time and forgot how cute and warm it is inside. My burger was amazing and service friendly. now i won't wait so long to go back!
This place is scrumptious in all regards – As a retired hipster, I can say with some degree of certainty that for the last year Lucky Strike has been the best laid-back late night in the city. The wait staff is pleasant, fun, and for the most part gorgeous (in the wonderful aesthetic beautification way, not in that she's-way-cuter-than-me-that-b@#$* way). The food is yummy, especially their cooked-to-perfection mussels in spicy tomato sauce and their shoestring crispy fries. But the best part about LS is the late night atmosphere, delightfully free of the B&Ts. You can get a completely delish martini in a glass (that's about 2 1/2 drinks) for $8.50 (I recommend the Vanilla Shanty, mmmm!) in a great homey setting with great music. The in-house lady DJ on Saturday nights has outrageously good taste in music, and moreover, takes requests. You can't go wrong with this place.
