Fanelli Cafe

Fanelli’s has outlived any other tavern in the neighborhood (since 1922 in fact), and for good reason, as a beer and burger here can never disappoint. Try to impress an old friend who thinks SoHo’s all gauche fusion joints with a lunch at Fanelli’s and they’ll never drop a hundo at David Burke again. Plus, you might even have a celebrity run-in – it is the comfort food spot for the serious downtown New Yorker after all.
