Sounds almost too good to be true, but Matts disdains attitude and price gouging and serves up great food and fine beverages. No wonder it is a neighborhood favorite, with a ""Cheers""-like atmosphere that encourages conversation and lingering. Based on three years of occasional meals taken here, this place never disappoints. There's a wide variety of global brews --draft or bottle-- and wines plus the usual assortment of alcohols. But what sets Matts apart is the honest, well presented flavorful food. When winter grinds the thermometer down, drop in and warm up with a great martini and what might be the best chicken potpie in NYC and a winner of a meatloaf --truly better than some of the ones I've forced down at some Moms that shall remain anonymous. The hamburgers are consistently tasty --juicy and cooked as ordered-- and the steaks worthy of an expense-account snob-hutch. The staff is invariably friendly towards regulars and casuals. Altogether, a great comibination. Matt's a keeper! May it remain faithful to its current formula and thrive for many years.
Pros: Food, drinks, service, value
