best fries in the borough, great beers at a great price, always good staff, cheese steak is top notch, sliders make good snacks between beers...and so on... – Oh this place you gotta have fries, cheesesteak and sliders with your beers cause the food is the jam and the beers are insane...staff is always good except for when they spill beer all over your head on accident....or maybe on purpose...
You've gotta try this place! – Great place to go for a satisfying experience. The rotating selection of american beer is exceptional. Good break from the ordinary as far as enjoying a quality beer. The menu stands on its own, delicious food that compliments the beers well, a good step above "ordinary" pub food. The staff is timely & well informed on the brews available, which helps if you're undicided or unfamiliar. The atmosphere is great as well, with the front doors open on warm summer nights you get a feel of the neighborhood around you. All in all, a great new bar with great people, great food, and most of all, great beer! Highly recommend it to anyone.
East VIllage Tavern - A Great Experience! – Have been there several times and have a blast each time! Great atmosphere, friendly and informative staff and last but definately most important.......... GREAT and DELICOUS BEER. What more can you ask for in a bar? I am absolutely going back!
American Beer Bar – I would fancy myself somewhat of a beer geek and the EVT does an amazing job of choosing great craft beers and keeping them fresh and rotating on draft. I spoke with the owner who said that they regularly clean their lines . Nothing is worse than going to a bar, seeing a great beer on tap, and getting a funky pour because the lines are dirty. From the several times I have gone to the EVT, I can say the pints are always fresh and delicious. I also like how they list the ABV (alcohol %) on their chalk board so you know when you are ordering a beer that is practically as strong as a wine.
Their food is also out of this world in taste and price. The menu far surpasses your typical bar food menu of chicken fingers, burgers and fries. The thing I like the MOST about this bar is that they serve exclusively AMERICAN beer, no imports.
Just Booked a Party There Great Place Great Beer Great Time – I just recently booked a party there and really enjoyed myself. The place was very accommodating and I highly recommend booking a party there. The beer selection I thought was great and I am a rookie to this new craft beer craze. The different types of beer suits everyone. If don't want a beer the bar is fully stocked. Check the place out. The neighborhood is really starting to take off.
I wish this place was closer to my job! – Went here with a bunch of teachers from Ditmas Jr. High (thanks Monty). We had a great time here. The beer was supurb! The doors were opened up to the street and the atmosphere was great! Let us know when the next party is going to be!!!
Can't wait to come back! We also had some great snacks! (Sliders, mac N' cheese, fries...)
Great Beer! – Can I say WOW!!! What a selection of Beer! We had such a great time here! I can't wait to attend a Sunday Brunch! Friendly staff, great location, great music and more!
OMFG LOVED IT!! – Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! simply delicious. I enjoyed the food, the service, the music, the atmosphere and the drinks. no complaints on this place. A must go!!
Great after-work hangout – I rarely hang out in the ever-gentrifying Alphabet City anymore, but this is a really fun hangout, comfy and unpretentious. They have a great happy hour, where the well drinks are not juts mixer! I know little about beer, but I know the few I really like and the waitress was great at recommending beers from their list that I would like based on my tastes. I?m very picky when it comes to food, and just because it is bar food, it is no excuse to be ?just? greasy, and the Tavern does not disappoint. The sweet potato fries were delicious (Southern food is my fave), and surprisingly and happily married to a BBQ-type dip. And the cheese steak may not be Philly but it?s great, and very reasonable prices. A simple and welcoming decor, relaxed atmosphere, perfect to forget the worries of the workday. The place is big enough that even when busy it doesn?t feel uncomfortably crowded or noisy. Expect a very mixed clientele where everyone is welcome and comfortable ? NYU students, artists, attractive young professionals fleeing the stilted yuppie scene, young and old, casual and well-put-together, everybody bonds here. I am definitely going back, again and again and again - and I?m going to start lobbying for a dessert menu ? I want a key lime pie to follow those fries!
Best Brunch in L.E.S. – PAJAMA BRUNCH!!! What else is better than sitting around in your pajamas all day...Rolling out of bed and going to brunch in your pajamas, hanging out with everyone else in the neighborhood in their pajamas. Had the fried croissant stuffed with goat cheese while sucking down a double espresso white russian. Once brunch was over Sunday Funday was in full swing, $4 drink specials all day long. Great idea East Village Tavern. Wait until you see next weeks pajamas.
