Dinner with my aunt and her beer afficionado boyfriend
My Aunt and her boyfriend want to take me out to dinner to thank me for letting them stay with me this week. I live on the UWS, but theoretically we could travel anywhere.
Caveats: not too expensive (they're staying with me and not in a hotel for a reason) and MUST have a good beer selection for the boyfriend. Any cuisine is fine by me.
Any suggestions? I just don't know what places have good beer selections since I'm much more of a "good wine list" person myself. Thanks!
DBA in the East Village has huge beer selection. Not sure about the food.
Vol de Nuit in the Village is a cool NYC spot - almost unmarked. Has great Belgian selection and I've seen people eating mussels and fries there. Not sure what else they have. Don't go on the weekend - too crowded. I think Markt is closed now
While it has a great selection of beers, DBA doesn't have any food (except cheese on Mondays). You can order for delivery from nearby restaurants, but I'm not sure if that's what the OP had in mind.
Something the OP might like: Petite Abeille, which has a few locations in Manhattan
It's a 4-location chain of Belgian restaurants, with Belgian food and lots of tasty beers. It's not outrageously expensive, either.
If you'd really prefer to stay on the UWS and not have to travel, Cafe Luxembourg has a decent beer selection and the food is pretty standard reliable stuff.
