Bars we look forward to visiting in Brooklyn

There are always numerous NYC bars on our radar to visit.  Two spots in Brooklyn we hope to visit sooner rather than later are Dumbo’s Randolph Beer and the rooftop bar at the 1 Hotel.  Randolph Beer, located at 82 Prospect St, is the establishment’s third location (in addition to those in Manhattan’s NoLita and Brooklyn’s Williamsburg).  The Dumbo location will serve both regional U.S. craft beers as well as Randolph’s own house beers brewed on site.  Located less than a half-mile to the northwest at 60 Furman, the 1 Hotel’s rooftop bar opened earlier in 2017.  The views of Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge are supposed to be spectacular.  Once we’ve had a chance to visit these two spots, we will post brief reviews of both in this space.



A review of Death Ave in Manhattan’s Chelsea

Located at 315 10th Avenue in Manhattan’s Chelsea (and just a few blocks south of the Hudson Yards development), Death Ave is a Greek restaurant that also brews its own beer.  We had been waiting over two years for the home brews to start flowing!  Finally, on a recent afternoon NYC pub crawl along 10th Avenue we stopped into the main restaurant (the recently-opened tap room is now also open for lunch on most days) for a few beers. Our samplings included the Kolsch and Pale Ale.  Death Ave also offered a few Belgian-style ales.  The braised lamb sandwich is outstanding!
