NYC Restaurant Review: Stone Creek Bar and Lounge
Stone Creek Bar and Lounge
140 27th St Between 3rd Ave and Lexington
I used to live just down the street of this place...but they hadn't opened yet. I wish they had! This is one of the better bars in the neighborhood.
First off, they have a good sense of happy hour:
HAPPY HOUR MONDAY-FRIDAY 4:00-7:00 p.m.
$2 off mixed drinks, drafts and select wines
Stone Creek Specials:
Monday Nights: 25-cent Wing Night
Tuesday Nights: Bottle of Wine and 2 Appetizers - $35
Wednesdays: Trivia Night at 8 p.m. (weekly prizes & drink specials)
Second, their Stone Creek Ale is quite nice and nice and cheap during those happy hours.
It is also a nice, relaxing place. It does get crowded sometimes, which is fine. But it retains a laid back atmosphere even then. They don't rush you. It is comfortable and relaxed.
AND they have good food. The pulled pork sliders are probably the best they have. The Roberto's Quesadilla is also great. The Crispy Calamari, Pigs in a Blanket, Jalapeno Poppers and Chicken Fingers are definitely good, but more standard than the Quesadilla and sliders. The Chicken Satay was disappointing, but it was the only disappointing thing I had. I haven't yet tried the Gruyere Macaroni & Cheese but it is on my list of things to try when I go back...and I will go back. I have tended to like their onion rings but not be so impressed with their french fries...but I particularly like THIN french fries, so that may be part of it.
Definitely a good place to try in the neighborhood for good beer and good food...better than some of the more well known places around. It isn't a family sit down place, but I have been tempted to take my son there because I bet he'd like the burger sliders. But taking your kid to a bar is kind of frowned upon!
