A lively restaurant and bar in the heart of Greenwich Village, McCoy American Bistro harkens back to the vibrant exuberance of the Prohibition era. Stepping through French doors from our outdoor dining area into the airy interior, guests feel transported into the Roaring Twenties. Our carved wood bar, jazz styling, and vintage dÃƒÂ©cor celebrate an intimate Speakeasy ambiance with an emphasis on quality food made from the freshest ingredients.
McCoy draws its inspiration from the grit and character of William “Bill” McCoy, a Prohibition-era Rum Runner who gloried in his reputation as an honest lawbreaker. McCoy never watered down his smuggled spirits nor used imposter labels. McCoy’s products were the real deal, and when you were in one of the many Speakeasy’s throughout the city and was served great booze, it was frequently stated “This is the Real McCoy.”
Today as in Roaring 20’s, McCoy only serves genuine goods. From farm to table, McCoy honors fresh ingredients with simple seasonings to bring out the pure vitality of the food’s flavors. We do American classics with Executive Chef Eric McCue’s thoughtfully crafted, healthy twists. Nearly all of all meals are gluten-free, reflecting the time in our American heritage before food was processed. At McCoy, we work with small farms in the Hudson Valley to source only fresh, quality ingredients to our tables.
Through classic cocktails to re-imagined spirits, Master Mixologist Justin Koch channels the edgy Prohibition era in each concoction. With hand-squeezed juices, specially designed syrups, and freshly muddled embellishments, McCoy’s spirits selections reflect Bill McCoy’s passion for quality in every ounce served. In addition, McCoy has a growing wine line list to complement its menu selections and craft beers from American brewers.
McCoy has quickly established a foothold on the famous corner of Bleecker and MacDougal in Greenwich Village. Where there were once thousands of speakeasies and jazz clubs in the City, now we invite you to visit the only one authentic throwback to that effulgent era Ã¢â‚¬â€œ McCoy American Bistro.
