Unlike its cross-country branches, P.J. Clarke's in Midtown is the original saloon, established in 1884. It's the one where Frank Sinatra joked about the urinals, the one featured on the cover of a 1971 issue of The New Yorker, the one currently surrounded by skyscrapers. The bar itself is ornamented in antique goodies, such as a framed portrait of a beardless Lincoln side-by-side with one of Kennedy. Though P.J. Clarke's has gone commercial, the historic, weathered charm of the original is something that can't be replicated. Order its acclaimed burger and some oysters from the raw bar and pay your dues with a glass of gin on the rocks.
