THE APPEAL OF DAMON RUNYON, the New York storyteller, newspaperman and sportswriter came from his mastery, but also invention, of 1920s American slang – a mixture of the ‘louche and the lugubrious’ according to the New Yorker magazine. He would go to Lindy’s, an all-night Jewish deli on Broadway that became Mindy’s in his stories, and listen.

Runyon married a down-on-her-luck Spanish countess from Madrid, 26 years his younger, who turned out to be an up-on-her-heels Mexican dancer from Tampico. When he died his ashes were taken up in a plane and sprinkled all over New York.

    No staff to seat on arrival had to ask a bar staff employee Kitchen closed for cleaning so had to wait to order Food tasteless, the buttermilk chicken coating was damp and not crispy (had to remove as it was awful) the pickles were raw and very greasy as were the onion rings, majority of the meal was returned, had asked for no cheese but they put it on anyway ! No one else in the restaurant And just to add insult they trtied to add 20% service charge !!!! AVOID shocking from start to finish - Mothers day meal I will never forget

    Overall a lovely evening. Took a while for anyone to come and take a drinks order. My husband doesn’t drink so ordered a 0% beer. He was offered three to choose from. Then the waitress came over and explained there was no 0% options available and would he like a cider? He asked if it was 0% and she said no. Very disappointing in 2024 to have no non-alcoholic drinks available other than soft drinks. Especially in January when lots of people are doing dry January. Food was great, the salt and pepper chicken starter didn’t taste like I expected but was still really nice.

    Dear Kate Thank You for Kind Rewiev. Regarding your drinks order, I am sorry if there was some kind of misunderstanding as we offer Alkohol Free Beer, indeed is not exactly 0.0% but it's 0.5% which is still under UK Law labelled as Alkohol Free product. We have as well range of non-alcoholic spirits and mocktails in our offer. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention, and I hope we can see you again. Many Thanks Lucas Daminski F&B Manager
