A word from BLT Bar and Grill
BLT Bar & Grill is a modern tavern serving inspired versions of familiar American classics and bar fare with hand-crafted cocktails, beer and wine. The menu features a wide variety of favorites from sharable snacks, fresh salads and grilled meats to market-driven pastas, pizzas and sandwiches. BLT Bar & Grill is everyday dining that still affords impeccable style and service.

BLT Bar & Grill spans two levels, with each floor offering a different energy and experience. The full menu is available throughout the restaurant, but guests can opt to linger in the upstairs dining room or socialize at the bustling downstairs bar. The space features high ceilings with custom-designed wood beam chandeliers draped with Edison bulbs. The warm, tavern-like atmosphere is outfitted in dark red and brown leathers, with neon signage that recalls classic American pub décor.

Diner Reviews
  • "A fine spot for lunch or brunch after a visit to the freedom tower museum. Menu has something for everyone. Kids had burgers & fries, women had omelettes, and the winner was a brunch special enclosed in a donut , which was like a confection! Our server was hepful; when asked her opinion she steered my husband to the donut special saying it was something out of the ordinary, which it surely was! Prices were very reasonable, making it a good choice for a family or group visiting the area."

  • "The room temperature ranged from mildly warm to sauna despite repeated requests. They tried to give us the wrong wine. The burger had dressing on it despite a request for none. The pasta was at best lukewarm and it was impossible to get a server so it could be reheated. At one point a server said the hotel controls the AC so they cold not really do anything!! We have been to other great BLT restaurants so this one was a real BAD surprise."

  • "I was pleasantly surprised with the food and service at BLT Bar and Grill. The BLT brand is one that is consistent for the most part, and it is a brand that I can trust to give good service. However, given the multitude of restaurants in Manhattan with similar styles, tastes, cuisine, and service for a similar price, I can safely say that the BLT experience is one that every person should try once--and perhaps expand their horizons afterwards."

  • "Our waiter, Ezequiel, was fantastic. Very polite, courteous and handsome. I would come back for him! The food was very heavy. Loved the deviled eggs and the tuna tartar."

  • "I've been here before and knew they had great burgers, but the brunch was equally fantastic. The French Toast and Belgiums waffles were amazing. Highly recommend."

  • "We went for brunch Saturday morning, and were one of only four tables. Despite this, it took over 10 minutes for us to get a simple question answered about the bottomless brunch promotion, after asking both the hostess and the server. It then took over 5 minutes for us to receive our first mimosas once we ordered. We also were seated in a table where the sun was in my boyfriend's eyes, and moved ourselves, which was never even acknowledged by the staff. Our waitress switched about halfway through, and things improved once we received our food (and second and third mimosas), but we probably won't return."

  • "Grabbed birthday lunch with a friend and the service was friendly and the food came fast which allowed us to eat and chat while not feeling rushed. Definitely a place I'd go to again."

  • "Had been the BLT once before and they had a price fix menu which was great and the service was friendly and attentive This time, there was not price fix - the service was poor and the portions were tiny. For like $30 I got 5 scallops on my plate...nothing else. The service staff seemed confused and our waiter rarely came by. Probably will not be going back."

  • "This was a breakfast meeting with my boss - and it was a great place. We were not rushed, service was good and we were able to talk easily. I have been there for lunch in the past and enjoyed that as well - outdoor seating with a view of the NY harbour, Statue of Liberty, etc."

  • "We had a team lunch on Friday and BLT was able to accommodate all 12 of us with a short notice. Service was great, staff was friendly and there was little to no wait when we arrived 15 minutes early. Everyone was satisfied with the food which had good variety. We also had a birthday and they were able to accommodate dessert although one of our members closed the tab a few minutes early. Definitely recommend!"

  • "The hostess at this expanding, Chef driven Bistro was the only employee who truly executed proper service standards during our visit. Anticipated my needs, went the extra mile with a request and wore a permanent smile ear to ear. Bartender was mechanical and distracted. Wine pours were very uneven one glass to the next. The server took our order correctly and was pleasant, but had a very large station and could not get back until the check was dropped. The busier tried repeatedly to clear plates before we were finished and did not speak English well, so this became somewhat comical. The food however, was very good. Standouts were deviled eggs, pizza, tuna tartar and crab salad. The popovers are to die for and always made perfectly here."

  • "Food was good; Service was good. Nothing overly "fantastic" - but definitely a solid option for a good meal. Meal prices were reasonable - but drinks seemed pricey."

  • "BLT and the family of restaurants are always good. I think the food is good. The drinks were divine, the salted caramel martini yummy and creamy! We had a melange of dishes brussel sprouts, deviled eggs, calamari, procuitto and the steak. All very good. The dishes arrived on time, were hot and tasted as advertised! The dessert was tiramisu, light fluffy with fresh ladyfingers on top with espresso."

  • "Went out for a casual Sunday evening dinner but what we got was blown away by the level of sophistication served up with every course. Waiter, Paul was outstanding with just the right balance of attention while timing delivery of each course to make it one of the top dining experiences we've had in Lower Manhattan over the last two years. Thanks BLT!"

  • "Four of us had lunch on a friday before our visit to Ground Zero Memorial. Food was very uneven. My burger and fries were perfect, but my friend's chicken sandwich was below par. Best advice-- order burgers. Re: service: It was very cold and windy outside and the manager allowed folks to enter through a side door that often sent cold breezes through the space-- very annoying. Also music was sooo loud it was very hard to have a conversation and it took multiple requests to get it even slightly lower!"

  • "my only complaint is that the menu doesn't advise what kind of bread is used for sandwiches. Very surprising considering so many people suffer with nut allergies. I had to send my sandwich back (which I never do) because the multi-grain bread it was served on was loaded with seeds and due to a medical condition I cannot eat seeds. The waiter was very nice about it and the chef offered to make a complely new sandwich, which wasn't necessary. But I did feel bad and embarrassed, that I had to send something back when it wasn't the chef's fault."

  • "Was looking for a Sunday brunch down in the FiDit. Chose BLT based on one guest wanted a place that served omelets and waffles. We were greeted and promptly seated. Our waiter asked if we wanted anything to drink. Only later did we learn when we overheard another waiter, that there was a special on Mimosa's and Bloody Mary's. When ordering, my guest ordered the Omelet which said 'a choice of three ingredients' but no options were listed. When asked, the waiter said 'whatever you want'. My guest said salmon and the waiter replied, 'except salmon'. Then we asked again what options and he stated 'whatever you want'. Ended up ordering something else in frustration. He was only scene once more during the meal. Poor service. OK food."

We told her we had to get to our allotted time at the memorial and she had us in and out stat. Great food, two burgers. And the best fries I've ever had! We're in and out of the city for weekends a lot and we will be back to blt!"

  • "Went to BLT for what I thought would be a professional, delicious and efficient dining/business experience . I got none of those? Waitress had no idea what liquor was behind the bar , refused to deviate from the menu (really, I have to have mustard on my sandwich? U can't add avocado to another sandwich ? ). Never asked if we wanted more drinks-- server was MIA- even getting the bill was a chore!!! Do not go!!"

  • "Love all the BLT restaurants. Had a drink @ bar waiting for our reservation. On line to speak with the hostess she serviced the person behind me before me. She didn’t allow me to finish my drinks with the security that my table wouldn’t be given up, restaurant was only half full. I closed out my tab & was lead to a bar-stooled table, unacceptable considering I made a reservation for dinner. I asked to be moved, after enough back & forth she finally did. I mentioned to the waitress I was a pescatarian b4 ordering, & got the grilled cheese app, delicious expect it contained prosciutto & found out after taking a bite. In the middle of conversing/eating the busboy asked to clear our table 3 times in the course of 7 minutes during our entrees."
