The Elgin is a bar & restaurant serving upscale fare situated just south of Rockefeller Center & steps from Broadway & Times Square. Our goal is to provide sophisticated cocktails, a carefully curated craft & seasonal beer list, amazing food in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Please join us!
The Elgin’s 4 main principals, Peter Pernicone, Darwin Conner, Paul Baum & Christine Trauben, have known each other for 30 years. They all grew up on the lower west side of NYC in Chelsea & had a goal of owning a bar together & could not be more excited about opening The Elgin. As an acknowledgment of their collective history, they named a signature cocktail—the Chelsea 1724—after their neighborhood. Darwin & Paul grew up in Chelsea on 17th St and Peter & Christine lived on 24th St. They are joined by Patrick Callaghan who has been working with Peter for many years.

    Food was okay (not great) but service was terrible for a half full restaurant. No refills on water were offered (we had to ask when they brought us the bill) and our appetizer never came out. I wouldn’t return.

    Good pub food with a twist. For example, the fish and chips come with a nice curry mayonnaise. Fairly loud. Good place for a reasonable priced dinner before a show.

    We booked into the Elgin online before we flew to NY. We were not disappointed with our choice at all. From the moment we walked in until we left, we had great service from everyone. I had the Elgin burger and was, by far, the best burger that I’d eaten on our trip. My husband had the New York Strip and was very pleased with his choice. We started with a couple of cocktails (mine was the tequila based one) and both were delicious. If you find yourself at a loose end and want a great meal, you need look no further.

    Our server was excellent. The smoked cocktail was amazing, and the food… Poke nachos, pita bread and carrots with a dip (Mezze), steak sliders, all fantastic. Very noisy very crowded. Kind of a bar with a restaurant in the back. Would go back with the group :-)

    Stopped in for a pre theater meal. Food and service were excellent. It was a little louder than expected at first, but quieted down after a while. Guess it’s an after work place to meet as well!

    Appetizers looked so good we chose a few instead of ordering entrees. Poke nachos kale salad, and meatballs were all delicious, and much bigger than expected. Great drinks, although I had to google a few tems in the descriptions. I'd give 4.5 stars because overall it was great, but for me it was too loud and required a bit of shouting to have a conversation. Staff are friendly and work as a team.
