Date night? Family fun night? Game night? No matter what your plans are, the Upper East Side’s Treadwell Park is the perfect place to go. I actually would take anyone there for any occasion because it’s that awesome
With two floors, patio seating, and stools at the bar, Treadwell Park is super spacious and has tons of natural light flowing through the restaurant. Though it’s known as a “dynamic craft beer hall,” it also has excellent food, free self-serve popcorn, and complimentary pinball, pingpong, and Jenga!
Plus, if you’re with competitive people, its game-on before, during, and/or after your meal! My boyfriend and I happened to be in the middle of an epic Jenga battle when our food arrived, so we put the game on pause and feasted before continuing. Oh, there’s also 12 big-screen, high-definition TVs throughout the place if you want to just watch your favorite sports team or players.
I shamelessly tried out a good amount of the menu and enjoyed every bite that I stuffed myself with. My favorites out of the small plates included the salty ‘n sweet, thick-cut bacon lollies; the spicy pork meatballs with a cool cilantro yogurt dipping sauce; and the smoked crispy wings with a horseradish cream sauce. Next time, I’ll have to try the giant soft pretzel with pimento cheese dip and the kimchi griddle cakes (sounds interesting, right?).
For the mains, Treadwell Park has an eclectic mix of offerings. Items range from the (brat)wurst sampler with Schaller and Weber’s brat, sauerkraut, and warm potato salad; the Nathan’s all-beef foot-long hot dog; and the barbecued baby back ribs; to a selection of juicy hamburgers that include a Pat LaFrieda’s blend of wagyu Kobe-style burger and the Merchant’s signature brisket burger.
Treadwell Park also offers brunch with tradition morning fare such as the poached eggs with avocado and parmesan on curried quinoa; house smoked beef brisket and fried eggs; and classic French toast.
