Harold’s Meat + Three
2 Renwick St.
(at Canal)
American (Traditional)
More casual than fancy

Chef Harold Moore, known for his (closed) West Village restaurant Commerce, has opened an all-day restaurant in the new Arlo hotel. It’s called a meat-and-three after the Southern cafeteria style, where you choose a main dish and a trio of sides. Harold’s is very handsome, with none of the kitsch that “meat-and-three” calls to mind. The dining room is large, with a bar running down the middle of the room, and natural light comes in from two sides, thanks to the Arlo’s courtyard. Harold’s appears to be trying to walk the high-low line: On one hand, in the dining room there’s a salad bar and a glass-door refrigerator filled with meat; on the other hand, the cocktail bar has those silver nut dishes you see in old-school hotels. There are two menus, one for lunch/brunch, and one for dinner; the latter has many more options, including a variety of sauces and a handful of appetizers.
