There are some good recomendations above. I dont think you can go wrong with any of them. I would aslo add the burp castle to the list. We went to the Alewife in Long Island city, a quick subway ride from times square, this weekend for the first time. They have a good selection and decent prices and is more low key. We went to an event with unlimited tastings so we didnt eat their food, but it looked good. We stopped at Rattle and Hum on the way home. They have a good beer selection but the wife wasnt too happy about the $17 burger i had, but I was pretty drunk hungry.
