I've been a local of Turtle Bay for about 5 years now. At first, I wondered why I would go there with all the beautiful places in NYC to be a part of. One answer...the people.
The bar is one of the most welcoming you'll ever experience. And the food, all homemade, is worthy of much nicer places in NY. I'd say the best bar food I have ever had.
Jason, Marlene, Danielle, and Al are some of the most responsive and wonderful bartenders you'll ever interact with. Rumors are swirling that it will be closing soon so try to catch it while you can.
Pros: Food, Bartenders, Drink Specials
Cons: Dive, Bathrooms
