The Flatiron has the Breslin and now the Financial District has the Bailey. The 5,000-square-foot, 140-seat “Pub & Brasserie” is a partnership between Jason O’Brien of Trinity Place and Dublin 6, and chef Donal Crosbie of Spago and Danube. Inside you’ll find a 67-foot walnut wood bar, handsome red leather banquettes, and large, luminous windows. So what kind of crowd are the Bailey’s $12 cocktails likely to draw? Well, it’s a block from Wall Street — the photo above and the words “Kobe Pigs in the Blanket” are a pretty good indicator. Though to be fair, the menu runs the gamut from Coq au Vin to Hungarian Beef Goulash (both weekly specials)— take a look below.
