Tribeca Tavern in New York City

Absolutely excellent is the best way to describe our experience at the Tribeca Tavern in New York City.

Friends and I were in Manhattan on a Saturday night and wanted to grab quick pub-style food, watch the game and get a good beer.

Since we love finding new, random places, when we saw the sign for this place, we figured why not try it.

The brick walls are adorned with chalk boards that list the impressive and extensive list of draft beers the bar has, including a local pumpkin brew that when drank alone tasted like you were eating pumpkin pie, but also paired surprisingly well with the bar food we ordered.

Speaking of food, the pizza was by far, one of the best “bar pies” all three of us have had. It was hot, cheesy and had a tasty sauce – and we’re all picky with tomato sauce, so for all of us to agree on it, it’s got to be good.

The potato skins were good, but if you go, definitely try the pizza. Another little tip – it was cheaper for us to order a pitcher of the beer than by the glass, so ask the prices.

The place looks small when you walk in, but there is a large back area that also has a pool table. It was packed for Sunday football, and my guess is it’s the same during baseball season. If you’re ever in the area, check it out.
