Located just next to the 46th street subway stop on the south side of Queens Boulevard, Sidetracks serves as a restaurant, sports bar, and dance club all in one. For food purposes, brunch is your best bet, as the dinner menu is a bit on the expensive side.
Sidetracks by day. At night, especially a weekend night, a line of partygoers fills the sidewalk. Also, you can’t tell in the picture, but the left half’s wall is retractable, so its open to the outside on warmer days.
Most items on the brunch menu come with either home fries or french fries. Here you see the Eggs Florentine ($10) which were quite good – certainly one of the best in the neighborhood.
The Eggs Nova ($11) are a little more expensive on account of the salmon. On the right you’ll notice a Bloody Mary – each dish comes with one complimentary (or a Mimosa). There are no substitutions, however, and coffee is $2, while sodas are whopping $3 (and the coke I ordered wasn’t even a real Coca-Cola!)
The somewhat less appealing Spanish omelete ($10) tastes good nevertheless. Most of the brunch menu focuses on egg dishes, but there are some “Irish breakfast” items as well as a couple burgers and triple decker sandwiches available.
