This classic Irish saloon at the corner of Eleventh Avenue and 46th Street has been a New York City landmark since since 1868, when James Clare first opened for business on what was then the Hudson River waterfront. Landfill has moved the waterfront a block west to Twelfth Avenue since then, and gaslight gave way to electricity a while back, but you can stll get a taste of the old Hell's Kitchen (as well as fine modern dining) at The Landmark. Every Monday, Don Meade and friends gather in the back room for an Irish traditional music session.
