Wildwood BBQ – CLOSED

Wildwood BBQ

Wildwood BBQ has your standard barbeque joint fare…skillet cornbread, wings, sandwiches, burgers, chicken, ribs, brisket, pulled pork, potato salad, cole slaw, french fries, mac & cheese, grits, collard greens and BEER. We’ve stopped in for drinks a couple of times and been completely underwhelmed. The service at the bar could be better. That’s why we were pleasantly surprised when we made a reservation with family & friend from out of town to find that it was … Continue reading

Black Door & Park Bar

Black Door

Neighborhood Bar no website 127 W. 26th Street – Chelsea 15 E. 15th St. – Union Square Oddly enough, in the last week we went to both of our old NYC neighborhoods.  Neither are neighborhoods where you might find yourself on any given evening, but you never know! Black Door is the sister bar to Park Bar at 15 E. 15th St. in Union Square. Both get a kind of young and swanky crowd. And … Continue reading

Japonais – CLOSED

Japanese 111 East 18th St. – Union Square It’s been a while since I’ve been at Japonais. It was certainly empty for lunch, but we really enjoyed sitting outside on a gorgeous day having a light Japanese lunch. I recommend trying it at lunch on a Saturday as opposed to the ‘scene’ at night. But then it may not be a scene anymore?! Manju Buns $9 Lobster Spring Rolls $12 Spicy Tuna Roll $8 … Continue reading
