J. G. MELON

A New York Institution. Period. 

This is where we take visiting friends and family when they say they're "in the mood for anything," no matter the hour. Parents have stopped here for dinners at 7 p.m. Drunk friends fall in just before closing for a late-night, meaty nightcap. 

There's a jukebox packed with classics, no-nonsense staff and a menu that will laugh if you wanted anything besides a burger and fries. Oh, and it's cash only. They're not playing around.
