NYC Gastropubs Overview

Cornelius - Gastropub | Oyster Bar in NYC

For those who like mad science and esoteric flavors with their bar food, New York gastropubs have some of the best eats in America. Taking a high-end approach to everyday favorites, these specialty hangouts will have even the most battered barflies ordering a little duck foam on the side.

In true Big Apple fashion, NYC gastropubs take things one step higher than your average well-stocked hole in the wall. General rule of thumb dictates that guests receive an experience along with their lunch – hence spots like Birreria atop Eataly, whose circuitous entrance, open-ceiling outdoor dining area, and barrel-laden bar speak of the highest caliber of down-home eating. Similarly, the mix of flat-screen TVs and dark wood décor at the Ainsworth, or the special side entrance of hip burger joint Black Market, turn the consumption of respectable bar food into as much of a ride as a meal. Still, the ingredients and drink choices offered by these hotspots – artisanal beer is the name of the game – attract both hipster foodies ready to throw down a little extra coin and upper-crust jet-setters who tell themselves they’re slumming it.

Gastropubs in New York may be somewhat of an emerging phenomenon, but the availability of rare materials and dedication to style shown by these establishments makes them necessary layovers for food tourists and laid-back drinkers alike.
