3.25/5  rDev -26%

Stopped in this past Saturday afternoon for a couple of cold ones. "S" shaped bar aloong the right/back from the right corner entrance, flanked by maybe 15 tbales, some along the windows, which were open and begged for much interesting people watching in The Village.
About 20? beers on tap, with many dozens in bottles, all craft, no BMC, which is nice. The selection included many IPA's and Stouts, a little different for a warm Saturday afternoon for me. I had a Bruery Saison followed by an Unearthly, both served in proper glassware.
We split an order of the Chicken Quesadillas, which tasted OK, but were sort of greasy.
While the 2 bartenders seemed nice, serviecf at this place, well at that time was not good at all. There was zero floor service for tables, meaning that we had to pick a spot to invade the bar and yell over others for drinks or food. I hate that. It took 5-10 minutes to do this when we arrived; very, very close to my patience threshold and us walking out. Not sure if this happens at other times, as this was my first visit.
I would say, based on the service problems we had, and the sort of IPA/Stout skewed tap list, I may not return on subsequent visits to NYC (I live in MA, so am a tourist there). Other places I've been have better service, better beer and better food, but probably not better people watching if you can get a window. Still, I enjoyed my two beers and was thankful we were not in a BMC bar...
