Playwright Bar & Restaurant
Playwright Tavern is a place where you can relax ac" where the atmosphere is warm, the people lively and the food appetizing. A true Irish American bar and restaurant. Serving New York since 1995 we are a regular stop off for theater goers before and after a Broadway show. We are conveniently located in the heart of the Theater District, just minutes from Rockefeller Centre and St. Patrick's Cathedral.
as you see the pics above, i had amazing onion soup (perfect!) followed by the worst hamburger i've ever had at a restaurant. i was angry. i asked for a well done burger & got a tiny, charred bit of meat on a very large dry bun. i was very dissapointed. i stared at it in amazement. if you got the hamburger in the picture would you be happy? so i left with such mixed feelings. the atmosphere was fun, the soup was delicious, the hamburger was shameful, & the service was less to be desired (only one smile). atmosphere/soup = 5 stars. hamburger/service = 1 star.
