Wild Turkey Pub

On 47th Avenue, between 40th and 39th streets, there used to be a restaurant called The Boulevard, to which I actually never got a chance to go to. And now I never will, because that place is gone, and has been replaced with the Wild Turkey Pub. We went there with a few friends yesterday evening, just as the snow was starting to fall.

The place is brand new, so as you can see in the picture, even the awning is currently blank. Unfortunately this also means that their alcohol selection is pretty weak right now. Even though they ostensibly have a full bar, their beer brands are limited to Corona, Bud, Heineken, and Sam Adams. The novice bartender did make a pretty good mixed drink though. On the plus side of it being new, you can find lots of good deals on Groupon an Yelp for discounts.

The food, I am happy to say, was delicious. The menu is just printed out on regular printer paper for now, but their kitchen is clearly professional. There is a wide range of appetizers, comfort food, and burgers. The truffle mac and cheese was really great. The portion sizes are huge – they definitely don’t skimp on anything involving the burgers. Even the sliders are of descent size, and come in platters of three. The only negative were the french fries. Even though they have a selection of regular, sweet potato, and home fries, they are pretty mediocre. The prices are very reasonable though – most appetizers clock in around $5, and entrees at $10 (although there are some more expensive main dishes).

  1. My onion rings were stone cold. They would have been good if they were warm. The truffle mac and cheese was okay, but not amazing.
