I have to say, I will make this a regular spot each time I am in New York! This place was easy to get to from Grand Central Terminal after a brief walk. It is also near the Empire State Building. It's unassuming... you could easily walk right by it (which we did the first time!). It has that feel of being one of those hip NYC places and yet it wasn't TOO trendy or upscale. It is a must-see destination for beer lovers. My friend and I sat in the front where it is bright with a view of the street. When I walked toward the back to use the bathrooms I went past tables for eating and then a room nestled in the back, dim, filled with comfortable looking couches. The place was fairly empty when we arrived at around 3:30 pm but we stayed until almost 6:30 and the place really filled up when the work day ended and the dinner hour began. Many patrons just stood around the bar just drinking and chatting. The food is very expensive. Good, but you don't get much for the price. Likewise, the beer is also on the high side but don't let the price deter you. We spent about $86 (inlcuding tip) on around 7 beers, a sandwich, a salad, and chips. It was worth it for the selection of on-tap and bottled beer. The waitress was friendly, knowledgable and even shared a sip of our beer! I will definitely be back next time I am in NYC!
