Maiden Lane was founded by Gareth Maccubbin in the East Village neighborhood of New York City. Since its opening in 2013, Maiden Lane has brought to the American dining scene the eclectic world of fine European tinned seafood.  Featuring an extensive liquor, beer and wine list, we aim to provide the experience of a European conservas bar with a distinctly New York spirit. We also operate an online store that ships tins around the country as well as seasonal pop-up retail shops. Maiden Lane and has been featured on radio programs and publications worldwide such as Heritage Radio, The New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, Vogue, New York Magazine, Bon Appétit and more.

Maiden Lane’s menu revolves around fine tinned seafood from Europe. The canneries we work with implement sustainable fishing methods and clean and pack their products by hand to ensure quality. Caught at the height of the season, the canning process aims to preserve the best fish at peak of quality. Highly nutritious and filling, a quality source of protein and omega-3’s, a tin of fish accompanied by a salad or piece of baguette makes for a complete meal.

In addition to the tinned seafood options, we offer a seasonal menu of bar snacks, salads and sandwiches. The uniquely curated selection of spirits, wine and beer are chosen to complement the food menu. With an emphasis on coastal regions, our beverage menu is focused on small production wines, craft beer, and artisanal spirits.

With large windows looking out at historic Tompkins square park, the vibe is a lively, neighborhood bar with an engaging staff, attentive but casual service and killer soundtrack. In the warm months, grab a seat outside on our sidewalk café and be sure catch all-vinyl DJ sets on Friday and Saturday nights. We look forward to seeing you the next time you're on Avenue B!
