Not like The Map Room needs any more reviews. I believe the law of averages took over after about 50 or 75 reviews. If an establishment is still pulling an A after that, then you know they are doing something right. The Map Room is is what we thought is was.

I have been there a number of times, always finding new goodies on the menu to try. Great atmosphere, especially during the Spring or on a cool Summer day, when they open the big street side windows. The light falls onto the bar, tables and floor and gives them a very rich look. The bartenders are always knowledgable and one of the times I was there in Spring, one of the bartenders was playing Lovage. I didn't think anyone even knew about Lovage other than me. That was pretty cool. The Map Room is my favorite pure beer bar in the city. And if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time, they put out a free food spread. It doesn't last long, so grab a plate.
