Please be sure to patronize Kipsey’s. They are serving up some great American comfort food with a bit of a Middle Eastern influence. They have one of the best burgers in Manhattan with a proprietary meat blend (we like it with the Gruyere cheese and carmelized onions) and amazing fries. They just introduced a new cocktail menu that’s defininitely mixologist inspired. They have a 4-star rating on Yelp and some great reviews. Also 5 out of 5 stars on MenuPages and 4.5 out of 5 stars on Trip Advisor.
The owners Arnon and Melissa are the nicest people; Be sure to say Hi.
They had a bit of a glitch with their air conditioning but that’s been fixed.
We have long-needed a great, comfortable neighborhood place and hangout like this!
