Here's my tentative list of beer stuff:
Milk & Hops or Haymaker, As Is
Upright Ale House
Blind Tiger
St. Anselm, Spuyten Duyvil, Fette Sau
Maybe Tørst

This bar Cardiff Giant has a nice list of all NY stuff.

edit: looking at places like Lupulo's list, I hope pricing like that isn't standard. Yeesh. :$:

I'm baffled that several high end NYC bars have Scratch bottles. We're in the same state and barely see them, maybe 3 times a year. :shrug:

Also LIC Beer Project, Interboro, West Kill Brewing, Hudson Valley, Finback, and Equilibrium ... yay or nay? :popcorn:

Is there a better NYC bagel than Ess-a-Bagel?



Keste for pizza looks pretty legit, around the corner from Blind Tiger. They have a pizza with a handle. :unsure:



Thinking dinner there Sat, and St. Anselm for lunch on Sunday. (their steak has a handle too)

:thumbup: I get a steak maybe twice a year...might as well make it a good one.
The only caveat, it's $2.95 an oz. and averages 45-65 oz. :mellow:
Are bone-in ribeyes all center cut? Maybe I could ask for an end.

This place? Probably not. The fact they advertise a "per ounce" cost means it's cut to order resulting in end cuts (think carved prime rib) so you would want to specify. How big are you thinking? If you get something on the higher end they'll add another bone meaning you're paying for a few ounces of inedible product.

I'd order the smallest one they have probably... or just get a different one if an end cut isn't available.

If you are in the mood to make the trek to Harlem, my friends literally go here as much as possible. It's on my list, but I haven't been able to get there yet.

Also, we went here for my bachelorette party - highly recommend. It's in mid-town a block over from Times Square, so if you have never been to Times Sq you can literally poke your head over and be like "OK I HAVE HAD ENOUGH FOR A LIFETIME"

Those both look really good, idk that we'll make it up to Harlem this time though.
Did Times Sq. once, that was enough for a lifetime, lol. I hear the costume people are pretty bad now. That wasn't a thing 10 yrs. ago, at least I didn't see any.

Geez, where to begin. We covered 16 miles on foot somehow, my calves and hip are sore :bakes:
I got about 50 pics, but not easy to upload and post on the phone, will figure out later.
Hit just about everywhere we planned to, and made some audibles to hit more.

Highlights:

Beer stuff:
Tørst - met the bev mgr. and we talked about lambic.info for a bit, Estonian beer, and city water sources. def not as pretentious as i'd expected.
Spuyten Duyvil - chill as hell, great mellow vibe. only a handful of patrons with the aroma of mulled wine wafting through the air. Cool backyard.
As Is - amazing selection, chill vibe, great service. sign out front: "come on down to Juicetown" lol. Hudson Valley Peach Silhouette was insane.
Blind Tiger - packed, chatted up a regular with a hardcore nyc accent, he had just put his 90 yr old mom on the subway home.  :blink:
Upright Ale House - cool spot, maybe a little basic, but good selection and friendly folks in there.

hotel beers:



Food stuff:
Chelsea Market - Jam packed at 2 on a Saturday, basically a glorified "urban" food court. Not a fan. The one taco place i'd heard was good had a 50 person line with a bunch of strollers and assorted debris so we walked on by.



We ate at a place that had Yemeni food, Dizengoff.
Small shashouka with 1 egg for $10, and grated carrots in harissa for $4. They had a carrot hummus bowl we thought we ordered, but got the hot shredded ones instead. One pita for 2 people. Plus a 10 oz. beer, it was like $26 <_<

Keste - This was authentic Neapolitan style, pretty good pie but not the best ever. Spacca Napoli and Coalfire make a better pie. The Blind Tiger guy was raving to us about Lombardi's, but it was across town, and this was right around the corner.

Puff Cha - This tiny Thai place was around the corner from As Is in Hell's Kitchen. They advertise "puff pastries" with different fillings, but they were totally just doughy empanadas. We waited about 30 min. for 6 of them, and they were terrible. Mushy and probably from frozen, the crust was super sweet. There was only one full table on a Sat. night, that should have been a clue. I mean, just look at it. The "bbq pork" looks like dog food. :-X



Ess-a-Bagel - NYC bagel joint since the 70's that has won some awards. Went on a rainy Sunday morning, pretty short line. I was just going to get lox and got upsold to "their #1 seller" the signature bagel. It was $14. Oh well, treat yo self. It was good, but not great.

St. Anselm - Saving grace of the trip, food wise. The butcher steak was perfect, also had burrata & roasted butternut squash, longbeans, mashed potatoes, all good.

Pies n' Thighs - Pie/donuts were very legit. Packed for brunch but we scooted in & out in 5 min, real nice folks there.

City stuff:
Midtown - Some cool architecture, but kind of sterile. Less tourists I guess. Saw St. Bart's Church, Carnegie Hall, City Center, etc.
Greenwich Village - old money hip, like Old Town in Chicago. Nice architecture, narrow sidewalks and lots of yuppies/bro herds around.
Chelsea - Felt the most "regular" as a neighborhood for some reason, before we got to the gallery district section of it.
Brooklyn - Eerily quiet in Williamsburg on a Sunday, like no cars, no people. It was weird.

Went to a couple rare book dealers, Bauman was a cool place to browse. They had a first edition Peter rabbit for 20K. :o: Went to an antique shop in Brooklyn and left our janky umbrella behind by accident. They had a taxidermied giraffe in there. :mellow: Hit Central Park on a soggy Sunday morning and walked 3-4 mi.

Art stuff:





Barry McGee at Cheim & Reid - one of my favorite artists, and an intense show packed with visual details. Staff were kind of douchey, but that's to be expected I guess. They warmed up some when I mentioned we flew in to see this show and had met the artist before. Glad we only hit 2 galleries though.



Survival Research Labs (SRL) at Marlborough Contemporary - right next door to the McGee show, so a no brainer. SRL has been building nightmarish battle robots since 1979, and fighting them to the death, apparently. One of them was a claw hand with an articulated spine that could extend 30 ft. in the air. The biggest one could shoot 2x4's into a reinforced box at 90 mph. Another one had mummified squirrels for "eyes", pretty weird.

Laura Owens at the Whitney Museum - the building itself was pretty cool, 8 stories with a balcony that had great skyline views. There was a line of several hundred people to get in, didn't expect that. We went in a side door and through the gift shop to the ticket line. The art show was pretty good, cool to see some stuff in person. Saw a lot of questionable fashion statements amongst the crowd, gucci dad shoes (furley>hey), a lot of "matching people" dressed alike.

All in all, :deadbanana:.
I'd go back anytime, but it didn't feel all that different from downtown Chicago. Nice place to visit, more stuff to do.
Pics forthcoming...

downtown Chicago feels less...... personal.... i think, to me. NYC feels more lived in.

Just Midtown, mostly. Just all the impersonal skyscrapers with the occasional amazing historical building.
Also riding the subway felt the same. The neighborhoods are very different, and the city in general is more grimy.
I can't tell you how many "mystery puddles" of stuff I had to jump over. It was gross.

ah, yeah, Midtown has been sanitized and corporatized. definitely just kind of generic big city.

NYC definitely seemed to have more respect for the old school and their heritage. Longtime businesses that have been around for decades and preserve some part of culture/history, as well as historical landmarks. Chicago just gives the developers free reign to tear everything down.

Another quirky thing about NYC, most of the beer stores seem to be weird bodegas or grocery stores. In Manhattan at least. No dedicated chain like Binnys here.
The best stores seemed to be in Brooklyn, but I didn't have time to get to any. Went to one place in Hells Kitchen which was basically the NYC version of Capones (Chicago).
