Our story is inspired by the adventure that is Track 61, an abandoned underground platform under the famous Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. This platform allowed VIPs to enter the hotel in a more private manner via a specially built private golden lift. One of the most famous VIPs that frequently used the platform was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Legend has it that Roosevelt’s armor-plated car would drive off the train, onto the platform and straight into the especially made golden elevator, which would lead to the hotel’s garage.

In 1965 the platform was used by the famous pop artist Andy Warhol for his ‘underground party’.

The quest for the platform, known as Track 61 has become a holy grail for many urban explorers.

Visit us @ 27 South William street and discover the holly grail for the urban foodies!

Food was lovely and ambience improved as more diners joined the room. Our waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. White wine should have been properly chilled. Will definitely return on an early bird as very good value. Wish nothing but the best for this little eatery

Decent ambience though quite dark (more lighting needed), little bit loud on the backing music (voulme control), service a little over-attentive and food good though not remarkable, more spicing and herbs I'd suggest. Solid if not spectacular and a little over-priced but in general, a decent evening's city centre dining

Dark restaurant which I liked and able to have a conversation with my partner without the whole restaurant hearing / good acoustics. Service good, food nice / middle of the road but not memorable enough to bring me back.

Great food. One of the best Hake dishes I have had. nAnd they don't allow ketchup to be served. Great decision.

Made our first visit to this compact basement restaurant which we had been meaning to try for some time. Their early bird menu is excellent value and our waiter was wonderful. The prawn starter was delicious. One minor quibble, the sauté rosemary potatoes could have been crispier. Definitely will be back.

although it initially took a while to find, once you know where P61 is you'll never lose the location...where the old Indigo & Cloth used to be, the owners have transformed the area into a warm and welcoming space with the perfect soft lighting and background music.. Molly, our waitress, was uber friendly and welcoming from the minute we set foot in the place...we were a party of two and were sat by the door (no draught came in)...lovely menu with good selection and well priced...we both didn't go for starters but next time I'm definitely trying them.. i went for the steak with chili prawns - the steak was a beautifully cooked ribeye that just melted in to mouth and the juicy prawns added an oompha with their tangy hotness (my only negative was would've preferred more veg as opposed to potatoes which were lovely but i know for next time)...my sister got the chicken (and she never gets chicken) with a yummy bean mix - soo tasty and would definitely work as a veggie dish with some warm bread...for dessert there was creme brulee (the best my sister ever had with perfect crisp sugar to crack and creamy goodness underneath) and tiramisu (light, fluffy and airy)...portions were perfect size and left you feeling happily full...discovered this place also do brunch so will most certainly be checking it out...can't highly recommend this place enough... :)
