We want to wish all of you very happy holidays. We miss you very much and cannot wait until we are back together in 2021!!!!
While we have great hope and faith that the vaccine will successfully mitigate this crippling pandemic, we wanted to share some wonderful news (and we all need some these days!). The documentary entitled Neary’s: The Dream at the End of the Rainbow is now available on Amazon Prime. Some of you have already seen the documentary on PBS but for those of you that have not .... It is a wonderful story of our father, Jimmy Neary, and his extraordinary journey of leaving the small town of Tubbercurry, Co. Sligo in Ireland and arriving on the shores of New York, the greatest city in the world, in 1954. You will enjoy listening to our dear friend, Kathie Lee Gifford, moderate most of the documentary and hear from a number of extraordinary people including the Archbishop of New York, Timothy Cardinal Dolan; former NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg; former Goldman Sachs CEO, Lloyd Blankfein; world-renowned author, Mary Higgins Clark; and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland, Jean Kennedy Smith. All special friends of our father and Neary’s for many, many years.
May God bless and keep you safe during this holiday season. We look forward to saying goodbye to 2020 and welcoming a bright and promising 2021.
Neary's opened on St. Patrick's Day 1967 and proudly remains one of the most well-known Irish restaurants in New York. The restaurant is often referred to as the "Irish 21." Jimmy Neary, New York's finest host, welcomes everyone in the door with his great Irish smile and charming personality. Each night Jimmy is joined by members of his family and his long-tenured staff to ensure that every customer feels like they are part of the family.
Neary's signature dishes include lamb chops, prime rib of beef, corned beef and cabbage and broiled 1/2 chicken. In addition, there is a fine selection of daily delivered fresh fish.
We look forward to taking care of you and sharing our special home with you.
The Neary Family
Betsy Bober Polivy, founder of Manhattan Sideways (sideways.nyc), has published an amazing book entitled Walking Manhattan Sideways. It is Betsy’s journey of walking the side streets of Manhattan’s original grid and showcasing some of New York’s most wonderful businesses, including our own favorite restaurant, Neary’s. We are truly honored to be included in the book.
Thank you, Betsy! We wish you much success with your fabulous publication.
“Neary's is like classy Irish restaurants in NY used to be decades ago, where the owner comes over to sit with you, where the bartenders greet you by name, and you feel at home.”
“This is an upscale place with a very relaxed atmosphere and no "snootiness.”
“Charming and wonderful service. The food is unbeatable. It really is like being in Ireland. Meeting Jimmy is particularly pleasant.”
“Everybody’s smiling. They might be a sourpuss when they come in, but they won’t be when we get done talking to them.”
