Founded by one half of the singing duo Asford and Simpson, Sugar Bar has been bringing decadent dishes and desserts to the Upper West Side since 1996. Located inside a converted brownstone, this venue has tons of outdoor seating and great music, making it ideal for a night out in the summer. Popular dinner items include the tender and savory New Zealand Lamb Chops and the Crispy Fried Chicken. Entrees come with classic sides like Collard Greens, Mac and Cheese, and Garlic Mashed Potatoes—and for any vegan or plant-forward eaters, there are meat alternatives to burgers or tacos or additional menu items like Tofu Scramble or Vegetarian Chili. For dessert, choose from Key Lime Pie, Bread Pudding, or Chocolate Cake.
