Any places near Urban Herbivore to get wine/beer?

Ediblethoughts Jun 18, 2009 06:07 AM

I've wanted to try this place (UH) for dinner but I understand they don't serve alcohol. Does anyone know if there is a place near by? Also, since I can't seem to find the menu on line, could anyone provide a little bit of an idea of what UH has on their menu?

    urban herbivore is a sandwich place. they also have soup (i think) baked goods like muffins etc. if u are going for dinner, go early as they are not open till very late.

    there are quite a few bars around urban herbivore. That being said, urban herbivore is more of a lunch spot and i'd go to Fressen for dinner instead.

        if an early dinner isn't a problem for you, then i would suggest getting your food to go and head over to ronnie's. they don't have a real food menu over there and so don't have issues with you bringing something to eat.

        ronnie's is also quite a nice choice because they have delerium tremens on tap!

          Interesting idea! I don't mind eating around 5 or 5:30 pm. So Ronnie's would be a good place to bring in food and order wine or beer? (Do you think they'd find it weird if a one-year-old was part of the party?)

            If you slap some temporary tattoos and an ironic t-shirt on the kid, no one will even notice. (my way of saying the joint is a bit hipster-ish)

              Quite the image! OK, thanks.

                it is very hipster-ish.. and not that i object to it but i guess that helps describe the place a bit more aptly. if you've ever been to sweaty betty's on ossington they are quite similar in many ways (including good beer but different selection).

                they earnestly wouldn't care about a 1yr old but i would also go on a day that is nicer out because the inside is pretty decrepit and small. the patio out front is quite large and barring any smoking issues, much more comfortable.

                  Also good to know. I guess a nice day but maybe not too nice because, yeah, don't want to have to deal with the smoke esp. because of the baby. Thanks.
