  • 100 whiskeys. Bacon cocktails. Craft beer. Wagyu burgers.
  • Old Fashioned + Pork Belly Toast
  • Nice Jazz tonight!!
  • finally a bar that serves proper cocktails on the UWS.
  • Draft beers and some appetizers are half off until 7. Get a craft beer for $4! Those are LES dive prices. I think I've found my stumble-home bar.
  • Watermelon Refresher is as advertised. Well balanced to still be "manly". Burger is nicely executed even on a ginormous bun. Cozy feel, great bar. Not well suited for large groups, perfect for dates.
  • Great whiskey list. Watermelon refresher is exquisite as well :)
  • Cocktails are all delicious--try the Penicillin! Great addition to the neighborhood. Just be careful if you sit outside, the smoke from the smokers outside the neighboring bro bars tends to waft over.
  • Food is great. Good happy hour. Friendly bar tender. Best kept uws secret
  • Potato lollipops? Yes, please! Delicious wines and beers and whiskeys. What's not to like?
  • Whiskey menu is great.
  • The place is called gluten and gluten.....yikes
  • The Kale and beet salad was amazing!
  • Good cocktails. Slow service.
  • The best whiskey joint on the uws. Can't beat the service and they've got the best glasses to slurp from.
  • This is the type of place that should end up on Bar Rescue: Great potential, terrible management.
  • Great American Mule cocktail.
  • I think this is the least personable or unique restaurant on the upper west side (even after reno) maybe come for cocktails, NOT food.
  • The food was good. Great Bloody Mary. But owner yelled and cursed at his wife at table next to me. I'll never come back again.
  • Baby kale salad was great. House cured pork belly is enough like a great brunch to bring a smile to your face.
