  • 10
  • Share

Need a place to sit and sip a good brew (or two) for 20 minutes or so b4 dinner at Tribeca Mr. Chow. I'll be taking 1 train to FRanklin and walking to Chow and it is supposed to be raining hard, so I really don't want to wander around or go out of my way...
Thanks a ton...

  1. Grace is on Franklin not far from the Subway.
    Walker's is also right on the corner

    1. Walker's for sure. Skip Mr. Chow and eat dinner there as well.

        Walker's is an excellent neighborhood bar. A "Cheers" type place with first rate burgers. Grace is stylish but expensive.

        Using the Martini Scale, Walker's serves them for $8. The martinis at Grace are $14.

      2. Wow--chowhound rules.
        Thanks

        1. Walkers...skip Mr. Chow...seriously.

          1. You have to stop knocking Mr. Chow. I posted earlier this week about having to go there, and how I will keep a positive attitude (contrary to my initial bitching), bc I have no choice. So instead of dreading it, I'm looking forward to peking duck. Trust me, I can come up with 100 better ways to drop 100 bucks than decent chinese food. But I am biting the bullet, with a forced smile.
            Biggest crime is the wifey doesn't eat seafood, duck or pork and she will essentially have a 100 dollar chicken broccolli.
            My smile is disappearing...

            1. And to add a point, I already have gained from this Mr Chow experience--I discovered Walkers

              1. if you want something a little more upscale pre or post dinner, you should check out Brandy Library on N. Moore. Excellent selection and atmosphere.

                  Big second for Brandy Library. Have a couple of very stiff drinks there so that you'll be able to deal with Mr. Chow, which in my opinion is the 10th circle of Hell.
