Alsatian restaurant and bar with a remarkable beer list.
Directions – Q train to 86th Street, walk north two short blocks. Alternatively, 4 / 5 / 6 train to 86th Street, walk north on Lexington Avenue two blocks, turn right on East 88th Street, continue for two blocks to 2nd Avenue.
Café d’Alsace is primarily a restaurant (modeled on a classic French bistro), but with bar seating also - so dining is not compulsory (but recommended!). It’s a very smart and laid back place, with a very focused view to their beer selection (there is a dedicated beer sommelier). The bar top is handmade in zinc, and there is a colourful display of antique soda bottles. Incredibly good, don’t miss. (9/2015)
Worth a visit if in the area; more bottles than drafts but overall good selection - perhaps more a restaurant with good beer on offer, including many Europeans but some good American beers too.
Back to the pub search.
