This Korean joint serves both modern and traditional Korean eats in a quaint setting.
One of six locations in the greater New York area, the East Village Croxley delivers craft beers, a bunch of TV screens, and unbelievable wing deals. Grab a basket for just 20 cents per wing every day, OR get your barbecue sauce-covered mitts on them for free every Friday from 4-7pm. Croxley's prides itself on refusing to feature domestic standbys like Bud and Miller Lite, coaxing you to get a bit more adventurous with the multitude of drafts and cans available. It even has its own house beer, which is definitely worth a taste.
A comfortable West Village institution bringing some of the best wings and authentic Philly cheesesteaks to NYC.
Pok Pok's brother restaurant, WSL dishes Authentic Thai food and drinks in Brooklyn.
Hope Garage's a resto open 'til 4am and satisfying your cravings of panko-crusted fish sticks w/ spicy remoulade, tri-fromage grilled cheese w/ caramelized onions, buffalo wings w/ blue cheese fondue & celery ribbons, and fried Wisconsin cheese curds.
This sprawling gastropub, situated in a landmark TriBeCa building, is a dark-wooded space with charcoal banquets, an elevated outdoor patio, and incredibly high ceilings. Living up to its name, Distilled derives the essential elements from classic pub fare and drinks and then redefines them, from complimentary popcorn with "magic dust" to chicken fried duck & waffles. The wings, created and perfected over several years (including during Chef Shane Lyons' stint at Momofuku), are dredged in a combo of beer, liquor, and spices, then twice-fried with a freeze in between to maximize their crispiness. The method seems like madness, but it creates some of the best wings in the city.
Blondies has all the fixins of a quintessential sports bar: big screen TVs, cheap happy hour drinks, and all-you-can-eat-wings on Monday nights. The Upper West Side spot is usually packed with Big 10 alums cheering on their respective alma maters.
Evoking both a hip Brooklyn nightspot and an actual barn, this hybrid Korean tapas restaurant, bar, and performance space fills the bottom floor of the Hotel Verite with a long, heavily wooded bi-level banquet hall. Shareable Korean eats liked fried dumplings and kimchee bacon pancakes dominate the menu, while picks like truffle mushrooms assert this gastropub's trendy likability.
