Discriminatory. Watched a bouncer toss out a patron for having Multiple Sclerosis. Walking with a limp, assumed he'd been over-served without asking a word. When explained he had MS, was tossed out anyway without a single word. AVOID this place.

We had a nightcap here. Service was adequate and prices were reasonable. This bar is larger than most NYC places. We didn't go up to the rooftop access, but the second floor was nice.

Try the sliders for good shareable plate for two or three. Can even get more for larger parties. Beer is good and service excellent. Went around midnight and crowd was not crazy. Close to four points by Sheraton. Menu for about anyone.

Great food, good cider/beer selection (clearly, with that name) and really good service. Almost everything on the menu looked great and everything we got was delicious!

We stopped at the Beer Authority for a quick meal and a beer / glass of wine. The BA is a fairly large pub with a rooftop garden too. The rooftop was quite busy so we grabbed a table in the main pub area. They...More

hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of
