Popped by Rattle N Hum on my first night spent in NYC, was first on my list of places to check out based on reviews here and through word of mouth. They also had a Weyerbacher Tap feature going on that evening as well, leaving the bar a little more packed than I'm sure it normally would be (having a Knicks playoff game and Yankees-Jays game going on the televisions didn't help either). We found a spot over in the corner, ordered up a couple Weyerbacher pints and some food. Food is about average/slight step up from regular pub fare (hard to really say, as I was pretty conservative with my fish and chips, but they had some likely better offerings available). Also picked up a 4x4oz sample flight of some awesome beers, server hit the nail on the head with these. Amazing tap list (40+ taps, 2 or so casks), although half of it was Weyerbacher the remainder featured some awesome offerings (Ruination, 08 Bourbon County etc). All pints range in price between $6-8 or so, and vary in size based on ABV. Server was nice and polite, although somewhat rushed. I'll give em the benefit of the doubt given how busy it was. Great bottle list, but isn't absolutely massive. Certainly miles ahead of anything I've ever seen in Toronto however. Bill came out to only 70-something for 4 pints, a flight and 2 meals so the value was certainly there. A must visit place in midtown Manhattan and anyone visiting NYC.

Arrived around 4:30 pm on a Wednesday. The bar was completely full but plenty of tables were open. Greeted by a server immediately but it took some time until she returned for a drink order. I knew what I wanted almost instantly but it seemed perhaps they give all patrons appropriate time to look over the draft list, it certainly is extensive. I order a glass of Bourbon County because, well, why not. $10 for an 8 oz pour, yeah... that's overpriced. Granted, I'm right off Fifth Ave but still, come on. Other pour prices weren't as obnoxious... Jai Alai $8 for 14 oz, but I guess this is NYC after all. I ordered the Fish & Chips; the chips were well done but the fish wasn't great. Breading completely fell apart from the fish and was a bit soggy.
By 6:00 pm the bar was completely packed and literally had to fight your way back out to 33rd St. Another one of these places I'd love to hit between that 2:00-4:00 time frame for the sake of the crowd it seems to draw.
