Tiny’s & the Bar Upstairs
135 W. Broadway
(bet. Thomas and Duane)
American (New), Bar
More casual than fancy

The name sums it up: The attractive space is indeed small, with a bar on the second floor (the third floor is for private events). The theme is rustic Americana, with antique tables, lab-style metal chairs, and mismatched plates, and the walls, ceilings, and floors are a patchwork of weathered brick, tin, tile, wood, and pink embossed wallpaper. While the menu is heavy on basics—soups, salads, sandwiches, and sides—there are sophisticated surprises, such as parsley in the beet salad and celery leaves in the sweet-potato-and-apple soup. Note: New York Ranger Henrik Lundqvist is among the owners.
