Though it succeeds as a welcome addition to a Jäger-fueled stretch of Murray Hill, Cask’s offerings are mostly amateur. The name refers to its two rotating cask beers (unpasteurized, hand-pumped ales), which are worth investigating—we enjoyed a malty Defiant porter. But the rest of the largely domestic lineup is humdrum. Only a few options—like Ruedrich’s Red Seal Ale—deviated from the usual beer-bar staples (Blue Point Lager, Ommegang Hennepin). If you’re in the neighborhood and looking for a respite from fratland, you can’t go wrong by sticking to the casks and the menu’s few highlights, like the black-truffle mac and cheese.

We did a bunch of cheeses/meets and a flatbread and it was fine, considering the area though I would say its great. Not much good food in Murray Hill but good to be aware of.


Perfect date spot. Really cute interior and delicious drinks. Food was ok - mushroom flatbread & cauliflower was awesome. Mussels were dry & kale cesar salad was super fishy tasting. 

Came with a group for happy hour/dinner and had heard great things. The veteran move here is to order a pitcher of their signature drinks rather than order by the glass. It was a good way to get the evening going! The food selection seemed pretty limited as they only had about 6-7 entree options so we complemented our orders with some of their apps. The flatbreads were nice with a side salad accompanying each. The nachos were great and kept you yearning for more. Brussel sprouts were good and the onion rings were nice too. Overall, its a great little spot...


I went here last night for dinner and happy hour! I ordered a blood orange jalapeño margarita and it was delicious! It was eight dollars in the happy hour menu which was totally worth it. My friends and I spilt the following: fennel and potato flatbread, Mac and cheese, meatballs, and fried cauliflower. The food was very tasty! However, I believe the food was overpriced.

I wish this place wasn't always so busy. It's good for happy hour just a little packed on some nights. That being said, I like the smaller dishes -- cheese steak spring rolls and sliders. 


This is an across the board solid dinner spot, especially for Murray Hill. While I was underwhelmed by the beer selection, I was more than satisfied with the menu. Philly Cheese Steak Spring Rolls, Brussel Sprouts, the Chopped Salad and the Wild Mushroom Flatbread covered our table and were consumed in their entirety. 

In addition to a very split-worthy menu, the lighting was perfect for a date. Soft lighting and dark corners made it feel very intimate and fit for conversation despite the size. No wait and great service really sealed the deal
