Tazza Café's baristas serve a lively selection of handcrafted coffee drinks alongside light lunch fare and pastries that are baked fresh in-house. Express your support for the international caffeinated beverage of your choice, choosing from the Americano, cappuccino, and café au lait ($3.25+), or remain deliciously neutral with a steamy Belgian sipping chocolate. A refreshing iced tea ($2.25+) staves off summer's sweltering advances and a frozen hot chocolate ($4.35) bombards unsuspecting mouths with the oxymoronic warmth of an unlighted stove. Alternate caffeinated sips with fluffy mouthfuls of freshly baked treats, including scones, croissants, and jumbo muffins, available in flavors such as pistachio-walnut and cappuccino ($2.75).
At The Bar & Grille on 7, none of the 11 flat-screen TVs ever goes idle. With subscriptions to virtually every sports package on both DirecTV and Comcast, including NFL Sunday Ticket, NHL Center ICE, and the 24-hour Lumberjack Channel, visitors almost always find a match to watch. But sports aren't the only thing guests clamor for. Warm dark wood lit by pendant lighting signals that this is a more upscale sports bar, with a thoughtful, vibrant menu. The signature B&G burger tops a half-pound Angus patty with avocado, brie, and bacon, and sliders embrace morsels of lobster drenched in aioli and lemon butter.
The global cuisine at Crown Restaurant & Lounge satisfies myriad hankerings. You'll find chicken penne vodka, chorizo tacos, Mexican roasted corn, hummus, and Angus burgers. The diverse menu comes together as gracefully as the smooth cuts of wood that dominate the main dining space. Exposed brick, gold-colored seats, and tufted upholstery add a touch of refinement to the lounge, where you can sip on sake, caipirinhas, or lambic beer until 2:30 a.m.
For almost 25 years, Gammeeok has been treating hungry New Yorkers to authentic Korean dishes. The menu includes classics—like bibimbap—as well as lesser-known gems, like seolleongtang, a white ox-bone broth brimming with brisket and wheat-flour noodles, which The New York Times dubbed one of "two things Korean food lovers can't live without". Other must-trys include abai soondae, a sausage stuffed with pork, sweet potato noodles, and steamed pig's feet, and the platter of briny raw oysters, sliced steam-softened pork belly with radish and white kimchi.
