Cheap spot for the area. Good happy hour specials. The bartenders are good and the drinks are stiff if you tip them well. I've never tried the food but others in my presence have and they seemed to enjoy it. I've also attended several parties there and they were nicely managed and the staff was friendly and attentive.

Had we tried, we'd be hard pressed to have found a place more aptly named than frying pan: not only did I enjoy a stacked burger equivalent to the size and width of my face (this presents dining challenges), but I literally cooked my face sitting up on the top deck overlooking the river and dueling shorelines. I spent much of the next few days looking either constantly embarrassed or really steamed about something. (Who says steamed anymore? Is this 1955? My face was red..this is the point-) Anyhoo, the burger itself was delicious, and with the cerulean skies and gentle breezes blowing around the deck like nobody's business, it was easy to tilt a couple and lose track of time with friends. This seems to be a popular joint to relax with a handful of your buddies, when time isn't an issue and you wanna break out the summer gear that's been no doubt eager to make an appearance at the break of inclement weather. And even with the bright hue of my cheekbones, there's nothing like a bite with friends on a sunny deck to make you feel that all is well.

Imagine being a visitor in New York...and your friend takes you to K-Town to hit up a lounge. You get to a corner...first floor you see a sunglasses store. You're thinking...why the hell are we here? Then you get into a REALLY SMALL elevator up to the Third Floor. Okay...are going to someone's apartment? Condo? What's going on.... Elevator door opens and here you are...in Third Floor Cafe Bar and Restaurant. First thought was...NICE! Ambiance was great...exactly the kind of lounge I love to kick it at. Nice tables and comfy chairs to sit on...just a relaxed night out for a few drinks with your friends. 5 stars so far... Drinks were definitely on the expensive side. $14 Jaeger Bomb, $12 shot of Patron, $10 shot of Grey Goose, $7 Blue Moon, $10 Lychee Martini....etc. I don't mind paying more for alcohol...but these were not big shots at all. Came in pretty small shot glasses...and tasted pretty weak as well. I had about 5 drinks here and was not buzzin off anything. But they did give us a round of Grey Goose on the house in the end...which is nice since we spent so much here. I'm not sure if it's just because it's New York...but the bartender here didn't know how to make a lot of the drinks I'm use to having in the West coast. Maybe it's because it's more of a classy lounge...so they don't make crazy drinks like LC. I love going to places like this...but probably wouldn't come to this exact one again. And they were playing the Notting HIll soundtrack...which is a good soundtrack...don't get me wrong! But...not the right time for it. When that was over, it turned into Korean trance stuff. It's cool though...the people there were pretty nice to us. There's just a time and place for everything...and this is not somewhere you would want to get shit faced at. Pretty classy lookin...okay for me.
