Excellent place in the downtown area! the blind tiger ale was- no pun intended- a blind choice we made once we saw how upscale the Gramercy tavern turned out to be.
and landing this great laid-back place in the middle of manhattan is certainly lucky. filled with folks not only american but very diverse, small and manageable and you still get a table and are greeted with a smile from the 'tender.
Sure no one's waiting your table but it's nice to go up to the bar and just have a look around. and the feel around with the chalk-board tap selection gives it an informal feel. the bartender was a pretty nice bloke with swift service and definetly earned his tip- we talked about beer by the end of the night (i was tipsy).
the selection, oh the selection! only on taps we're talking what, 15-20 crafts? but absolute brilliant crafts. these guys don't waste their time on rubbish beers. bottles aren't too many but a good amount nonetheless. and quality, seriously.
We tried the BLT sandwich and the hummus. nice hearty sandwich and tasty but unusual hummus.
overall, this place is brilliant, definetly a place to hit in manhattan.
