New York – Upper West Side
998 Amsterdam Ave. at W 109th St.
New York, NY 10025
Upper West Siders can tilt back a brew and play dominos at this laid-back tavern, outfitted with oak tables, brick walls and vintage photos of New York City. Casual drinkers and beer snobs will find something from the wide-ranging selection that includes pours both commercial (Bud Light and Amstel) and craft (Delirium Tremens, Fire Island). Pad all the boozing with a plate from the pub-grub menu, which features shepherd's pie, meatball sliders and frickles (crisply fried pickles served with a rémoulade sauce).
