NYC INTL New York City Best International Pubs Caledonia Scottish Pub

Adults 21 and over can visit Caledonia Scottish Pub for a fairly priced pint of Bell-haven and review the menu of authentic Scotch.  The wide variety are separated by region along the whole wall behind the mirrored bar.  Wood paneled with dark stain and varnish, this leathery Upper East Side Scottish Pub deserves only the best drinkers.  On a normal night the Manhattan Scotch affectionato crowd emerges.  Generally well heeled young successful professionals frequent the establishment, which may explain the high number of ladies looking for eligible companionship.  The music is usually just the right touch of Classic Psychedelic Rock and U.K. Classics and blends well with the international crowd.  The back has overstuffed tan leather couches, perfect for relaxing after a long day on the hamster wheel.  The front has a bay window and separate bench, perfect for drinking while watching pedestrians on Second Avenue.  Enjoy your stiff drink while watching the walking world wishing they had found a snug spot to relax with their friends.

At Caledonia Scottish Pub you are a regular by just walking in – we look forward to getting to know you.

A Perfect Rating for Caledonia Scottish Pub!

Pro’s:  Great Scotch selection, awesome environment, excellent talent show

Con’s:  It is really easy to catch a buzz and keep on rolling

ADVICE:  If you are extra lucky, Mike, The Man Himself, will be working behind the bar in a kilt.  If he isn’t swamped, he can give you tips on how to find the Scotch of your dreams.  Be sure and tip your barman well and they will remember you in the rounds to come.  They rate very highly on our favorite list of Manhattan’s Best Pubs and have a perfect score of an +A!  We can remember great times at Caledonia’s Scottish Pub and hope you can share the good times with us.

When you cheers in Scotland or in a Scottish Pub say, “Slangi Bar” which is a rough Gaelic translation of Cheers and all the best to you!

Thanks for drinking responsibly at Caledonia’s Scottish Pub

Restaurant Reviews

NYC INTL New York City International Dining

Thank you for visiting and dining in New York City.

Here, in our city of over 20,000,000 people, millions of meals are served all day long.  In The Big Apple, everyone can find a bite to suit their appetite and inclination.

True, the bills for an average meal can be potentially, as high as anywhere else in the world.  The fare can also be equally royal and decadent and may not always have an incredible price tag associated with the experience.

My wife and I live in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.  We are both world travelers and generally eat two or three meals a day.  We and our local chefs have access to excellent quality international raw foods from around the globe, and regularly prepare meals from scratch.  Because of 0ur global dining experiences, we tend to eat a wide variety of foods.

We seek out best quality and rate in terms of:

  • Cleanliness
  • Served food freshness
  • General Presentation
  • Flavors
  • Portions
  • Price
  • Service

The Zagat system of rating is an excellent way of finding general information about locations, however, we at NYC INTL offer first hand fresh advice on great restaurants.  When you are looking for fun cuisine we offer you an international direction.

Here you can find a list of our favorite restaurants and the reasons why we had a great experience.

We will try and not post negative comments about experiences at other less favorable restaurants, and rather focus on where to go, rather than waste time about where not to go.

If you like our reviews, please share them with your social network!  We, the restaurants, and your friends will thank you.

Likewise, if you feel like our review is in error, please feel free to log in for free and submit your experience, and we will take your experiences into account and evaluate each case on a per meal basis.

It is a pleasure dining with you New York City.  Here we have enjoyed many, many satisfying meals and we are so grateful, we have decided to share our good fortune with you.


New York City International Restaurant Review for:

Luke’s Lobster

Lukes Lobster New York City International Resturant Review

Our first recommendation is for Luke’s Lobster in the Upper East Side and other NYC Locations.

Luke’s Lobster, since it’s opening, has had a line out the door.  Their food is so good, they regularly sell out of fresh soups and gumbos so be sure and ask what is fresh and in stock.

We normally order the Lobster Bisque if available, and sample either their Shrimp Roll, Crab Roll, or Lobster Roll.

I order mine without mayo, but it normally comes mixed with a light coating of seasoned mayo on a toasted bun.

I recommend adding their locally brewed Blueberry Point Soda and a bag of organic BBQ potato chips to round out a combo meal for less money.
