PRESS - the latest gossip about us ...
No, they don't show "Gossip Girl" 24/7, although the show's brooding everyman, Dan Humphrey, should find himself quite at home at this laid-back, if kinda chichi, pub in Hell's Kitchen. The grub? Shock: predictably utilitarian bar food that's literally all over the map, from quesadillas to chicken satay to mini cordon bleu. Larger plates bust out the fancy-schmancy—can you say duck breast with pomegranate reduction? Ooooh. Prices that top out at $18? Ooooh. Late-night hours that stretch to 4 a.m. on weekends? Ooooh. A full second-floor party area can host groups of up to 100, and it's also got a working fireplace. Yeah, yeah, not quite the stuff of gossip, but worth paying lip service to. Solid. Solid. Solid.
It's not quite a restaurant. It's not quite a sports bar. It's not your typical Irish pub. It's just a solid place to get quality food and a pint of beer for a very reasonable price. It has quickly become my wife and I's go to place for a relaxed dinner out in the neighborhood. I recommend it very highly.
This little gem in Hell's Kitchen has been open just a few weeks. I stumbled across it with a few friends this afternoon and we were just delighted. While the neighboring bars and restaurants are relatively trashy, this place has more of an East Side feel than it does Hell's Kitchen. The burgers are to die for. My friend had the peanut satay - which was stellar, and the spinach artichoke dip was just right. Our bartender acted like we were old friends, and the rest of the wait staff treated us like family. We'll never know why this so-called "Irish" joint calls itself Gossip, but the experience is well worth it. Definitely check this place out!
I've been loving this place during the NCAA Men's basketball tournament, but also I have to say there are many other reasons to love the place. The food is slightly better than average pub fare, the space/interior is brand new yet still reminiscent of Ye Good Olde English/Irish Pubs, and the beer selection is well chosen. The staff, however, is where it excels. Good Bartending staff is indespensable in low times and I feel these Irish guys really know how talk to everybody and make them welcome. Charlie and Owen are the best!
Reserved the second floor of Gossip for my office's "Spring Fling" and a great time was had by all. Everyone I dealt with from the bartender to the owner was super accomodating and friendly. The drinks were strong and the food was delicious. If you're looking to host an event, this is the perfect place.
Gossip Bar & Restaurant:
From its first reviews, recently-opened Gossip seems like a perfectly serviceable pub, with late-night hours, an upstairs party space and working fireplace. The food is in the $9 to $15 price range, and includes your typical fancy-pub hybrid fare, like quesadillas and chicken satay. Entrees feature fancier items, like duck breast with pomegranate reduction.

Great burgers and nachos
So far, I've only tried the burgers and nachos. Both were excellent. The place is nice and cozy and the service quite good.
I love this place - beautiful Irish pub with great service and gorgeous back room! The name "Gossip" does not really go with the cozy interior and overall feeling of this bar though! Other than that, I love coming here w/ friends to just chill out...very welcoming atmosphere and nice lighting!
Great Neighborhood Spot
This place is exactly what the neighborhood needed. It's a great place for happy hour with colleagues or Sunday brunch. You can bring anyone here and they will be satisfied.
Gossip Bar and Restaurant is set on Ninth Ave in Midtown Manhattan. But this is not your typical midtown bar. For once there is a neighborhood pub that you can feel right at home. With two floors and an atmosphere that can mean a "crazy" New York night or a relaxed casual place to dine, this is the kind of place that you well be telling your friends about. No one ever knows where to go in midtown. Now you do. Come have some beers or grab a nice meal at the newest hot spot in NYC !!!
