Jimmy Neary ~ Proprietor

About Us

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, who passed away in October 2021, was the ultimate host. He warmly greeted everyone at the front door with his great smile, Irish brogue and charming personality. Jimmy's daugher, Una, who worked alongside her father for 42+ years, is running the restaurant and carrying on her father's legacy. In addition to Una, Neary is blessed to have an amazing staff, including her sister Ann Marie, and Liz Farrelly, who is in her 56th year, and Mary O'Connor, who is in her 46th year. Neary's is a warm and welcoming place where everyone is welcome....

Neary's signature dishes include famous lamb chops, prime ribs of beef, corned beef & cabbage, calf's liver with bacon or onions, and broiled 1/2 chicken. In addition, there is a fine selection of fresh fish including broiled salmon, broiled filet of sole and broiled rainbow trout. Make sure to save room for the homemade rice pudding and a delicious Irish coffee.

We look forward to taking care of you and sharing our special home with you.
