Part sports tavern, part karaoke bar, Mr. Biggs seduces 10th Avenue argonauts with a siren song of upscale pub grub, open-air dining, and free WiFi. American favorites populate the menu, introduced by starters such as chicken fingers with creamy honey-mustard sauce ($5.95) and nachos piled precariously high with guacamole, chili sauce, cheese, and jalapeños ($9.95). Mr. Biggs’s infamous buffalo wings are served mild, medium, or hot in a basket of 10 ($7.95), 20 ($13.95), 50 ($33), or 100 ($63), while the sizzling shrimp scampi arrives swimming in a sea of penne or linguini ($12.95). For a fork-free feast, opt for the 8-ounce prime beef Biggs burger ($10.95), which travels from plate to mouth alongside salad and potato wedges, or for a hands free feast, request the vegetable panini and help untying your shoes.
Mr. Biggs caters to closed-air diners with a cozy inner sanctuary that has a full bar and tables surrounded by banquette couches. Postmeal, patrons can catch the game on one of many flat-screen TVs, surf the web using the complementary WiFi, or belt out karaoke tunes about love, death, and trying to domesticate squirrels (karaoke on Fridays and Saturdays only).
