Time Out says

Monday-night readings are on the menu at Sebastian Junger’s eatery, named for an obscure Seneca chief (visit for a schedule). Choose between woody, candlelit rooms and the leafy back garden, then tuck into pub fare like burgers and fish-and-chips or more substantial dishes, such as pork roast served with parsnip hash and a phenomenal (but heavy) lamb steak with shoulder confit and mashed potatoes. Creamy seafood chowder, brimming with fish and vegetable morsels, is a meal unto itself. Fine dining this isn’t, but the King is a great place to toss back a few pints (from Bass to Strongbow) and enjoy perfectly good grub.
