Please Don’t Tell a speakeasy inside Crif Dogs Restaurant on St. Marks Place
To get to PDT, walk down the four steps into Crif Dogs. Along the dive's left wall, you'll find a wooden phone booth from the 1940s. Enter the camera-installed booth, pick up the phone and press the button.
While drinking at the bar, patrons can order food from Crif’s kitchen. Surprisingly the pairing is rather tasty and you’ll feel like a V.I.P. in a secret bar, getting food to your order passed through a secret wall.
The inside is rustic and modern and funky with the wood ceiling, brick walls, and stuffed, dead animals on the wall. There are no windows so it's pretty dark and dimly lit inside. Is it worth the hype to come here? Sure. It's fun! Worth the price and worth the wait!
Before you leave, be sure to check out the bathrooms, which feature glass-shard mosaics from artist Jim Powers and signs declaring, "No Opium Smoking" and "No Cocaine Peddling".
PDT accepts phone reservation starting at 3pm.The number for reservations is 212.614.0386.
This place is one of the best bakeries in New York City, located in Gowanus, Brooklyn. All products are seasonal and freshly made daily. Thet sell pie by the slice in the shop, and a limited number of whole pies are available for purchase, as the kitchen is really small.
Salted caramel apple pie is one of the best pies ever made, the blackberry goosberry is a great choice too.
The decor of the bakery is cute, rustic and quaint, and there's spacious table space for folks that want to work and mull over a slice of pie and coffee.
