Tavern On Jane

31 8th Ave
New York, NY

Ranking: 39


TAVERN ON JANE is a classic West Village watering hole…brick walls, fireplace, long wooden bar…you know the rest…a neighborhood joint.  The place sports a solid menu of comfort food and higher-end “bar food” options and takes pride in their 8oz. beef, turkey and buffalo burger options…they even have one with sirloin chili. With American, Swiss and Cheddar cheese options as well as bacon and sautéed mushrooms available any burger lover can find a pairing that they’ll enjoy.  Hand-cut, steak-style fries round out the burger plate as well as a side of coleslaw. BOTM really enjoyed its visit to TOJ. Love the atmosphere and friendly staff. Meals were cooked to order and overall a very good experience. Now to the burger.  A mixed bag of reviews here and the commentary really headed in one direction …there was nothing special about this burger. Same burger you could get at pretty much any diner in NYC. “OK” was the most used adjective.  So, if you’re looking for a place to meet up with friends and have a few drinks while ordering from a larger menu, TOJ is a great neighborhood spot…but if it’s true burger achievement you’re looking for this may not be the first stop on your journey.
