Good food... even better Beer

Hey everyone... I have a friend visiting and I want to take him somewhere that we can not only have a decent meal, but have some interesting beers as well. I have yet to find a place in the city that does both. Its either a great beer selection with no food or greasy food or great food with your typical 5 beers on tap. I'm in the west village so the closer the better, but I'll travel uptown if its worth it. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...

  1. The perfect place for you is Petite Abeille on W Broadway and Duane. The food is excellent, Belgian bistro with yummy fries.

    And they have the full complement of Belgian beers including my current fav, Corsendonk.

    1. another belgian option is cafe bruxelles. also has great frites, and a good belgian beer selection (mostly or entirely bottles).

      gingerman has really amazing beer, and i recently learned that they serve food. unfortunately the food is far from great.

      1. Hey thanks for the suggestions... I'll look them both up. And Gingerman... I love that place but i'd have to agree, I can't really see that place having good food. Awesome beer selection though!

        1. Not the neighborhood but Waterfront Ale House on 2nd Ave and 30th Street. Both beers and food are great.

          1. Puck Fair! It's in the LES / Nolita.
