Stone Street Restaurants in New York
Eating at one of the Stone Street restaurants in New York is a unique experience. This culinary, pedestrianised cobblestone street located in the Financial District, Lower Manhattan has a completely different atmosphere compared to anywhere else in the city. It certainly contrasts greatly with Wall Street, which is situated right behind.
Restaurants and Bars on Stone Street
Many people come to Stone Street’s cafes for drinks after work. It’s a perfect and idyllic spot for a terrace, and these places know it. In the summertime, the whole street turns into one big terrace, full of large picnic tables. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly: a good place for meeting people! Combine this all with the historical houses, their beautiful interiors and atmosphere, you can’t go wrong when dining on Stone Street.
Cocktails at Underdog
For the best cocktails head to Underdog. Actually, it’s a blessing in disguise that this place exists at all. Hurricane Sandy damaged a lot of Stone Street and completely devastated the party cellar. Instead of restoring it for its original purpose, they decided to create a cocktail bar. And it has become a great success. With a frequently changing menu full of original tasty cocktails, Underdog quickly rose to fame. Now, this post is all about restaurants and not necessarily about drinks, and they do have a great menu full of bites to share. It features tasty sliders, wings and also special, more peculiar bites. A nice touch: the music comes from a turntable.
Beers and Burgers at Stone Street Tavern
Stone Street Tavern is one of the oldest and most iconic restaurants on the street and offers a pub-style menu with comfort food, such as mac and cheese, fries, and wings. However, they are best known for their burgers. Order the legendary Classic Burger with one of their craft beers from a constantly changing selection.
Authentic Italian Food at Adrienne’s Pizzabar
Pizza lovers will also enjoy themselves on Stone Street where Adrienne’s Pizza bar is a popular favourite. The term ‘pizza bar’ is actually a bit misleading because in addition to their great, wood-fired pizzas, they also serve other Italian dishes, all very tasty, fresh and authentic. As for dessert, don’t forget to try a slice of their famous Nutella cake. Craving for more pizza? Here you can find my picks for the best pizza in New York.
Oysters at Ulysses
Oysters and conviviality, that’s what it’s all about at Ulysses A Folk House. It’s not an oyster bar, but this is the very item on the menu people keep coming back for. Above all, Ulysses is a cosy bar, with plenty of seats, where you can have drinks and eat something as well. Don’t go there if you want to grab a quick bite, because service can be slow. But what does it matter if you have plenty of time and you’re in such a nice place? They regularly have live music, adding to the already great atmosphere. The menu isn’t too special, but the dishes are affordable and tasty in their simplicity.
Discover the area
In addition to visiting Stone Street, the surrounding area is also fun and interesting to explore. You pass through Stone Street during the ‘Downtown Manhattan’ walking route in my Eric’s New York App, as well as Wall Street and the historic South Street Seaport. Extra helpful because I occasionally miss the street myself. If you want to learn more about the history of this area, book one of the Hamilton Tours.
