Mad Dog and Beans

Where: 83 Pearl Street (b/t Hanover Sq & Coenties Aly)
  • Stone Street in February on a Sunday night is a pretty desolate place, but has its charms
  • The food is competent and a bit antiseptic — this is for people who don’t want Chili’s or Applebees but aren’t adventurous, preoccupied with authenticity, or looking for the unexpected — a culinary Times Square for not-quite tourists — new transplants perhaps?
  • The prices fit the Wall Street environment; for those looking for taste and value, go elsewhere. If you want to entertain relatives or friends from out of town who are afraid of everything, take them here and they will think they had the most New York experience of their lives
