You can’t argue with a burger joint that’s weathered the Depression, Prohibition, and two World Wars. The P.J. Clarke hamburger is an institution in itself, and kids will love it “simply on a bun” ($9.90) or in miniature format, topped with cheese and served with shoestring fries ($16.75). Though the tots may turn up their noses, parents can enjoy fresh seafood from the raw bar or delve into the deluxe burger options.
