Wings, nachos and beer in downtown New York, how can you go wrong! Located right next to the Hilton Midtown, it's easy to find. Staff are friendly, beer is cold! Great combination! Can't go wrong here.

We enjoyed the atmosphere and the style of this restaurant. I recommend the chicken with mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. The potato skins are also very good.

Dropped in with husband and daughter just to have a quick drink-- and we stayed for a long while! Great drinks (try the Dutch Mule) and conversation with the charismatic server/bartender Julia. Our new secret hangout in Midtown.
