Went for an impromptu dinner with Pete to the Bliss Street Station pub this evening, where we ate while watching Larry King’s final show (the bartender\waiter was very obliging in putting on CNN!) I’ve only eaten there once before, years ago, so it was almost like a new experience. It was an enjoyable time and the food is definitely good, although some things on the menu can definitely be on the pricey side.
The black exterior walls make this place stand out on the corner of Greenpoint and 47th street. The decor is much less imposing on the inside.
A lot of creamy soups can be too buttery in taste, but this vegetable soup was just perfect. It comes filled to the brim by the way, and the only reason it’s half-eaten here is because I was hungry and forgot to take a picture until later.
This is the specialty chicken dish ($17), which comes with the soup (or salad), choice of potato, and vegetable (peas or corn). The sauce was very impressive and I would definitely order this again. The peas were good, but the baked potato was a little on the dry side (which was easily solved with butter though).
Pete ordered the chicken burger ($10) and was permitted to have a twice-baked potato (apparently better than the baked potato) in lieu of fries.
