Formerly known as “Bar 43” (and very briefly reviewed by me a year ago), the establishment is now formally known as “43 Bar & Grill” (located, as the name implies, near the corner of 43rd street and 43rd avenue). Although primarily a sports bar, the venue does feature a very nice menu and is frequented by many (including families) for meals.
The bar features outdoor seating (obviously it’s too cold for that now), and inside there is a plethora of TV screens, showing all kinds of sporting events. For major events (eg boxing matches), they frequently have open bar events with a cover charge.On an unrelated note, before I forget – Happy New Month’s everyone!
The $5 tomato bisque sounded appetizing, and indeed it was! Very good soup and well worth it. It seems small, but the bowl is actually pretty deep. The accompanying bread made for a perfect combination (dip it into the soup).
Equally good was the $5 mushroom soup. It was creamy, but not too creamy, and the mushrooms were very potent.
So technically this was supposed to be a sandwich, in a sourdough baguette, but the waitress said they ran out of the bread, so they made a wrap instead. This is one of many $10 sandwiches/burgers on the menu, each of which comes with fries, a pickle, and some cole slaw. The fries are very good and crispy. The sandwich was good, but there wasn’t enough chipotle (it wasn’t spicy at all).
This is a $10 turkey burger, and I was very confused as to why to came on what appears the bread they use for McDonald’s Egg McMuffins. Perhaps they ran out of hamburger buns as well? The burger was good, although a little small and a little undercooked. The ones at Molly Blooms are better. It did come with some fresh onion, tomato, lettuce, and avocado.
