Pete’s Tavern

Pete's TavernI braved the snow earlier today to meet my father & brother at Pete’s Tavern ((129 East 18th Street) ignore the lack of snow in the photograph.  I had forgotten my camera so I found a stock picture on Google), it’s a bit out of my usual stomping grounds, but what the heck.

Just from the exterior, you can tell that this place is old, a plaque by the door proudly states that Pete’s was established in 1864!  The interior probably hasn’t changed much at all!  A long bar with booths on the opposite wall lead to the dining area in the back (I’m pretty sure you can get food service up front too).

Well, let’s get to the meat & potatoes (literally), Pete’s Tavern is a place for burgers & fries. I got one, my Dad did as well, but my brother opted for the special of roasted chicken with fragrant rice; a choice that would end up biting him in the ass.  The chicken arrived looking dry as an old shoe & we could immediately see that he was not happy with this selection.  A few bites into his dish & he pretty much gave up.  Luckily our waitress was on top of her game; she saw that he wasn’t enjoying his meal & offered him something else.

The burgers that we ordered were excellent.  They were cooked medium rare just as we had ordered & you could see the care taken in making the burger & taste the diligence in the selection of meat.  I was unimpressed with my fries (well, not blown away like with the burger anyway), but I liked the beer selection.

All in all, Pete’s Tavern is a great spot to grab a beer, burger & have a good time.  I’ll be going back!

  1. Best place to enjoy the company of my two sons. Pete’s Tavern has the aura of an old english club. Excellence is pasted all over the place and the plates.
