Plan B Sports Bar & Grill sates sports fans into the small hours of the morning with televised athletics and an internationally themed menu of Mexican-, American-, and Asian-inspired cuisine. Scissor into a pineapple-chicken-teriyaki sandwich ($9), or three-hole-punch a plate of empanadas with seasoned beef folded into two golden-brown pastry shells and dipped in chipotle sour-cream sauce ($10). Fries settle starch cravings in a variety of guises, from skinny and curly to garlic parmesan and golden country ($5 each). The cross-cultural savor of pulled-pork nachos reinstates family quarrels as to who gets the last bite and whether you can build a dodecahedron out of triangles ($10). Included with this Groupon, a pitcher of Budweiser, Bud Light, Corona, Amstel Light, or Heineken arrives to wash down mouthwatering mouthfuls.
200 Fifth might as well be two different venues—the establishment bills itself as a restaurant and sports bar and maintains two distinct spaces, with one devoted to upscale dining and the other to boisterous game watching. In the restaurant, linen-dressed tables invite patrons to dine from a menu that integrates American and international dishes. Chicken arrives fried or prepared francese, and Angus steaks from a local butcher pair with roasted veggies. A selection of seafood entrees includes pan-seared salmon and trout du jour prepared in one of the chef’s specialty styles. Over in the bar, a more casual pub fare menu focuses on braised ribs and chicken wings in one of six sauces. Bartenders siphon suds from one of 40 taps, which include brews from Smuttynose and Six Point. More than 100 televisions broadcast nearly any sport; throughout the year, the bar subscribes to different sports packages and broadcasts fights from premium cable or pay-per-view
As internationally renowned indie bands whoop and howl below, audience members take a break from bobbing their heads on the dance floor and venture upstairs where a jukebox takes center stage. Perched on blue wooden benches, patrons can use their laps to balance plates of barbeque, plucked fresh from the grill.
Bagel Schmagel’s bakers combine fresh ingredients to create nine types of Old World–style bagels and more than a dozen handcrafted cream cheeses. A commitment to freshness and quality guides the bakery's foodsmiths, ensuring that each batch of bagels emerges from the kettle with a glistening, thin crust and a warm, spongy interior reminiscent of the Doughboy's spleen. The roster of eats also includes baked goods, salads, sandwiches, and specials, which are denoted on chalkboards. A blue-and-gray-striped awning denotes arrival at the bakery, shading floor-to-ceiling windows and a dining room with lox-colored walls.
