Sports bars with good food?

A fellows Cardinals fan and I are hoping to take in the carnage tonight (we accept that the Cards are going to get killed, we're just gluttons for punishment) at a sports bar that also offers a nice-ish dinner. Any suggestions? I'm on the UES, but downtown is OK, too. We'd rather avoid the west side for practical reasons, but that's about the only restriction.

  1. Professor Thom's on 2nd Ave between 13th & 14th St has decent bar food.

    1. Also, while this is an old post, it describes the certainly decent sports bars of the UES. I don't venture up there much, but I like Blondies and have found Ship of Fools and Backpage to be fine. Bounce, a new place, is also ok. Tons of TVs. More expensive food.

      1. Thanks guys; and thanks for that link, Jorel -- I clearly used poor search terms.

        1. David Copperfields @74th and York Ave is perhaps more a pub than sports bar atmosphere but that have decent food and large beer selection. 3 TV's and 1 large screen.

          1. I've visited the Park Avenue Country Club a few times and thought the food was well above that served in the average sports bar.

            On Park Ave. South at 27th St., one short block from the 28th St. 6 train stop.

              Agreed about PACC. Probably the more "nice-ish" type dinner that you're going to find at a sports bar.
