With chic new eateries popping up on the Bowery like flies, it's nice to know you can still get a relatively inexpensive late-night burger at Phebe's just as you could decades ago. This pubby neighborhood fixture is especially popular near last call when downtown revelers come down with a case of the munchies. Weathered hardwood floors, exposed beam ceilings and red brick give the place an old-school feel, while floor-to-ceiling windows that open up in the summer ensure the place gets plenty of light and doesn't feel stuffy. While the vibe is relaxed and casual during the week, the weekend DJs bring tons of collar-shirted men and high-heeled women looking more to party than sit down for a meal. The long menu ranges from a variety of burgers, sandwiches and salads to pub grub like shepherd's pie and fish and chips. You'll also find 20 American and Irish beers on tap, all served in 20 oz. glasses.—Keith Wagstaff
