Oliver's Bar and Grill
Housemade chili. Crispy calamari. Baked macaroni with white cheddar cheese. There's no one way to start a meal at Oliver's City Tavern—which is why on any given night patrons seated at booths, tables, or a classic stained-wood bar are pairing bites of a variety of starters with sips of freshly poured beers and well liquors. However, appetizers and drinks are just the beginning. For main courses, chefs simmer Louisiana-style jambalaya and slather cheese ravioli in a housemade Southern Italian pepper-and-mushroom sauce. On weekends, they swap their standard menu for a prix fixe brunch menu, which includes morning favorites such as eggs benedict, cinnamon french toast, and toasted alarm clocks.
Nonedible enjoyment stems from nine flat-screen TVs and an Internet jukebox that entertain guests throughout their meals. For a bit of live entertainment, patrons can gaze out the dining room's panoramic windows for people watching on the busy streets of Greenwich Village.
