BLT Bar and Grill in the W Hotel is the perfect spot for a business lunch in the financial district. The setting is modern and casual, and food is excellent, fresh and nicely presented. There is a wide variety of items on the menu, sure to please everyone in your party, including meat, seafood, pizza, pasta and vegetarian dishes and an array of healthy salads (the baby artichoke salad and roasted cauliflower salad are great!). Desserts are also wonderful including a delicious gluten free chocolate cake with sea salt caramel ice-cream.
BLT delivers on every promise. Service was warm, friendly, and attentive from the time we first walked in until we departed. My daughter had the salmon and devoured every bite - even before I could steal a taste. It was cooked perfectly. I had the grilled shrimp, which were seasoned with a perfect balance of spice and salt. The accompanying grapefruit salad blended well with the shrimp.
Rising above it all however, was the taste of that foldover bread that introduced the dinner. It was like an egg soufflé with crust - so delicate and tasty.
Worth a return trip just to share with others.
My headline says it all. Order the salmon burger. Fabulous. The fries are great here as well. A little pricey but the ambiance is lively. Ask to sit upstairs. It's MUCH nicer than downstairs. (Time for a little renovation, I think.) I eat here twice a month as I work in the neighborhood. Food is consistently good as is the service. And the dangling crystal teardrops outside the second floor elevator are beautiful to see especially as the LED lights change colors.
Took Wall St. area clients to BLT for breakfast - great food and service, good atmosphere. Biggest drawback - takes a tiny bit of effort to get there because of all the WTC construction, but once there, worth the trip.
Ordered the filet, it was not good. I ate about 1/2, my friend only ate 3 bites of hers. The waiter, to his credit, did ask her if she didn't care for it, she honestly replied that it was dry, and I said I agreed. He said something to the effect that we just didn't know good beef. Unbelievable! The manager did comp her steak (not mine), but the insulting attitude of the waiter was not to be forgotten.
Located within the Downtown W hotel this eatery is more than adequate for normal dining purposes. The food is tasty, honest and well prepared. The house wine was mediocre however, better by-the-glass selections recommended. This is very close to the Statue of Liberty Ferry and right across the street from the 9/11 memorial. Blue Smoke is also very nearby, however, and in many ways is a more interesting choice (southern BBQ and a very good brunch). I would definitely go back to BLT when a solid meal is desired, without overly exotic frills but completely satisfying and tasty. The ambiance is not fabulous, but one can eat outside weather permitting.
Great spot for business breakfast. Food is pretty good and ambiance is so NYC.
While the BLT Bar and Grill looks to have a great outdoor area and we can imagine summer activities here are great, we enjoyed a quiet winter Saturday dinner with great food and excellent service. The Pop Overs were AMAZING!!! The staff was nice enough to give us an extra order as an appetizer... Would highly recommend this place for a financial district dinner spot.
I have gone here many times. The food is tasty and the staff is friendly.
Reliable in its quality, BLT B&G is always great for its standards and specials alike and always features seasonal touches. Great wine list, great beers on tap and bottle. I never leave dissatisfied and always feel well attended whether at a small booth, at the bar, or in a large group. Lightly frequented by tourists, they mostly stay away - maybe it seems too sophisticated - good for us! There's just no peer to BLT in FiDi and is always at the top of my list when someone wants to go out to lunch.
Got the beet soup, steak sandwich and tiramasu. Beet soup was good. Steak sandwich was overwhelmed with bbq sauce - too much. Tiramasu was good. Service was excellent and attentive. For the financial district it was good. Definately would order something else.
I've been to BLT Burger, and my friend had been to BLT Prime and Fish, so we weren't stranger to the brand. I had come once before for drinks at the bar but not the food so we decided to try it for the restaurant week menu.
The oysters were delicious and my duck was cooked perfectly. The lightly spiced panna cotta was smooth and creamy. (my friend's tiramisu was a rather cold (made it feel like it just came from the freezer))
All in all, the food was much better than what you'd expect for a "bar and grill" but on par with the rest of the BLT brand. I would come again.
Side Note: The table we sat at though didn't feel very secure and was a little wobbly but we're adaptable and made sure not to lean on it. That's really the only negative about it.
The food was great, all E squared establishments deliver in that aspect. But this sunday brunch - ehhh. And it was my bday! There were only about 3 other tables besides my party, the waiter was no where to be found, they didnt tell us ahead of time that we wouldnt be seated upstairs. The waiters explanation was - "its not busy so they are closed". Some food items werent available because "we dont have the ingredients." What?!
Then he overcharged me for the wrong class of wine. And then he disappeared from the restaurant and our waiter switched, he was much nicer and more accomodating. Like i said, the food was great. But the service was horrible. It is so plain and no ambiance inside. Definitely not how I expected to spend my bday brunch.
This is my 5th time here. The other 4 times had been fabulous. Other than the wonderful tiramisu, everything else was "off". LONG wait for dinner, next table complained about his "cold steak" which was replaced, the normally wonderful popovers were over baked and took forever to arrive, food was "meh". My hot plate had obviously sat under a warmer but food just warm. Seriously, this place has been fantastic on all my previous visits. Service was pleasant but not as great as before. I hope this eve was an aberration.
Due to bad weather our party of five was reduced to three, who were late in gathering. The waiter was wonderful. the food was very good.
