We enjoyed our delicious food. Service was inattentive, had to ask other workers to find our server more than a few times.

Wonderful restaurant. The food is great; service team is thorough and friendly. Atmosphere is fun. Valet is awesome. This needs to be considered by Michelin for a star. Greg Nespole

Theater District
About the restaurant
Please call for parties over 4 guests. You table will be held for 15 minutes.
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.

The Elgin is a great find fairly close to the theater district. Cocktails are fantastic and the food is elevated bar food. Highly recommend.

Great hidden spot in the Bronx. We stayed at a near by hotel for Dodgers series at Yankee stadium, we won. The ambiance is very cool, excellent service, Jocelyn was a sweetheart and the food was very good. A DJ started after 9pm and had a great sound. Check it out if you are in the area.

The talent is high quality. We laughed a lot. Some were great, others were good. None were bad. Overall the experience was just what we were looking for—a fun night at a comedy club.
