Floor Glorious Food in New York City's Flatiron Hall




Before I start, I’d like you to all take a good, long look at this pretzel.  Soft, warm, salty, and when dipped into that piping pot of cheddar ale dip…hot diggity!  Loyalty for life is what I call that, Flatiron Hall!

Nestled in NoMad, Flatiron Hall is the sister restaurant to further-downtown’s Houston Hall (and we all remember how much I love that place!  But in case you forgot…!)

This two level complex houses the restaurant on the main floor and the rowdier hall one level down in the “beer cellar”.  The vibe is 1920′s New York meets 2014′s influx of craft beer lovers.  This place puts the meow in the cat, my friends.  And the service?  Top of the line.  We never sat with an empty glass, and our server went above and beyond to be so accommodating with my picky vegetarian tastes.

As obsessed as I am with the aforementioned pretzel, there’s still a bevy of menu options to please your pallet…(my husband has returned 3 times already for the Beef Filet Mignon Sandwich.  I wonder if it’s too late to get stock in this place…?)  Other favorites of ours were the Mediterranean Platter (great for sharing!), the Big Bowl Garden Vegetable Plate (great for veggies!), and the Dark Chocolate Mousse.

And being a beer hall, I would be amiss if I didn’t mention the frothy suds.  New Yorkers will be pleased to know that their beer is produced locally, as in right over the bridge, by Greenpoint Beer Works.  Besides what they have on tap, the bartenders also mix up a mean cocktail.  Runaway American Sidecar and Burnham’s Folly were particular favorites of mine, and not just cause of their cooler than cool names, promise.


Truly a great spot for a group meet up, lively date night, or throw-back evening to the crazy partying simpler times of the Roaring Twenties, Flatiron Hall has the recipe for success down.  Now if only they’d share the recipe to that pretzel and cheese dip…

Until then, here’s some food porn to tickle your fancy…
