Over the past few weeks, we’ve had a chance to visit such recently-opened spots as Midtown’s Sixty Five, Hell’s Kitchen’s The Waylon and Upper East Side’s Shorty’s. All three are very different from one another in vibe and draw. And, all three are worth a visit when you’re bar hopping through those respective areas of Manhattan. We’ll have reviews of these and other Manhattan spots over the next several days.
Recently, we had a chance to do some pub crawling around the Ridgewood section of Queens. We had the chance to visit some old neighborhood stand-by’s and some recently-opened spots. Later this week, we will have brief reviews of Gottscheer Hall, an old-school German beer hall and restaurant, and Onderdonk & Sons, a solid craft-beer bar. We look forward to a return visit to both spots on our next bar crawl through Ridgewood.
