Walk into Live Bait, and you feel like you are out on the bayou instead of the middle of the Flatiron district. Its decor looks like a Cajun bait shack, which it is the right place for down-home southern-style cooking. Specialties like Aunt Bea’s Boarding House fried chicken and Jailhouse Chili are popular items, as well as their smokehouse spare ribs and mashed potatoes. Live Bait also features a raw bar complete with clams and oysters. Flatiron workers stop by after work to sample Live Bait’s broad selection of beers and specialty drinks like the Oyster Clam Shooter made from raw oyster and Tabasco sauce. Live Bait is the official home of the Bubba Slush created by one of its patrons. There is also a lively late night scene.
