33rd Street and Broadway Area Restaurant?

My husband and I will be trekking to NYC Friday afternoon for his job interview so we thought we would have dinner afterwards to avoid rush hour and come home later. We are big on breweries/brew pubs or bars with large beer selections, especially any with chocolate stout. So where do you recommend we go? It would be nice if we could keep the meal under $100 for the two us with alcohol. Fire away! Thanks!

  1. Stout, on W. 33rd, has a huge list of beers, especially stouts. The food is decent, but not outstanding, but if you want a good beer list in this area, I don't think you will do better.

        1. I'd maybe walk 10 minutes south and east to Resto.

            Resto is a good choice. This comment reminds me that it's been too long since I've eaten there.

              Normally I'd agree- I do love resto and it has a good selection of belgian beers. However, they do trend toward the lighter colored beers. Looking at their current menu, they do have a porter that is probably the closest to the stout the poster is looking for.

              For broader beer selection I would go to the Ginger Man or Rattle n Hum, but their food options are a little weak.

            2. The Breslin is 4 blocks south on Broadway in the Ace Hotel, though I'm not much of a beer drinker and can't judge their selection. It has a pub-y atmosphere. I think it's possible to stay under $100 for two there, though it's easy to go over as well.
