Go o to The Jeffrey, a new take on the gastropub craze, which is located on 60th street just at the foot of the Queensboro Bridge. This establishment has it all. It is a laid back espresso bar serving locally-roasted artisanal coffees from Cafe Grumpy, in case you arrive before noon and aren’t quite ready to drink booze. They have an amazing food menu that consists of Bites, Sandwiches, and Oysters. The Bites, which are an assortment of traditional bar snacks served in nontraditional (better) ways, include my favorite, the Devils On Horseback which is bleu cheese stuffed dates wrapped in Nueske’s bacon with wholegrain mustard. The sandwiches are great too and include the namesake Jeffrey Cheeseburger, which is a 6oz Pat La Frieda beef patty, caramelized onion, pickles, lettuce & American cheese. Of course they have an incredible selection of beers for you beers snobs (you know who you are) as they have an innovative tap system with over 30 International beers to select from. Also, they have an intriguing cocktails selection prepared by their own famous bearded alchemist (link to video). And last, but not least, they have a bunch of TV’s that will play your NCAA games. And if that wasn’t enough, there is a heated beer garden in case you need some fresh air tainted by the fumes of cars coming off the bridge!
