Our first review of 2014 goes to Maggie Reilly’s located in northern Chelsea at 340 9th Avenue (near 30th Street), located in the former Blarney Stone location. Alas, with this particular Blarney Stone passing on, the Manhattan True-Dive NYC bar crawl continues to shrink. Anyway, Maggie’s is a decent place for affordable drinks and decent pub grub. The layout is practically identical to Blarney Stone’s layout, except the pool table in the back has been replaced by a dining area. Maggie’s offers ten draft beers with some good local representation. A solid spot for any West Side pub crawl in NYC, Maggie’s is also a good place to stop in at and get out of the cold January weather!
Several weeks ago, we shared a photo of a cheeseplate from Brooklyn’s Olympia Wine Bar. The photo below is from the recently-opened Vitis La Vineria, located at 284 Third Avenue in Manhattan’s Gramery nabe. Vitis is a great addition to any East Side NYC wine bar crawl.
After a few days out of town, we are back in NYC! We look forward to picking up we’re we left off in late 2013; namely, bar hopping and pub crawling around New York City’s five boroughs!
Best wishes for 2014. Our New Year’s Resolution: More NYC bar crawls this year!
