33rd Street and Broadway Area Restaurant?

  • 11
  • Share

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.

          1. Food is not the best, but good, and it is a 5 or so minute subway ride away, and none of the stouts are chocolate stouts, but the Blind Tiger has 6 different stouts on tap as of 10/26 and you would certainly be able to get out for under $100.

            1. Seriously considering going to Stout! But before we get on our way tomorrow, I thought I would ask, what is the BEST restaurant in the 33rd-37th and Broadway area? If we choose FOOD over Beer, where would you go? I might consider about going to Stout for drinks and then somewhere else for dinner.

                I would either go to one of the Korean restaurants, or to Lugo Caffe.

                Another possibility is The Breslin (often written about here). Their beer list is short, but well-chosen, their food is excellent.

                  Breslin is good, too, but at 29th and Broadway, and will probably have a significant wait on a Friday night.

                  1. re: kathryn

                    I've only been to the Breslin on weeknights. How bad is it on a Friday night (I got the impression the OP would be dining fairly early)?

                    1. re: Winterpool

                      i've seen people leave in a huff when quoted 2-3 hours for a party of 2 on a Saturday around prime dinner time. Can't imagine Friday night is that much better.

                      OP in a follow up said "I might consider about going to Stout for drinks and then somewhere else for dinner." I took that to mean they'd be arriving at the Breslin closer to prime dinner time.
