Let me set the scene for you. It’s about 10pm, and my coworkers and I had been drinking for about five hours already. God bless summer Fridays. We had the bad idea of going to Water Taxi Beach for happy hour and are now starving in South Street Seaport with no idea what to do with ourselves. The Seaport is not known for their food, that’s for damn sure. So, instead of leading this wasted crew through a Chinatown maze which would have only led to bad things, I hit Twitter for suggestions, and was told Cowgirl Sea-Horse was our move. Thanks to everyone who chimed in with a suggestion.
A laid back bar/restaurant with tortilla chips, tacos and buckets of beer was exactly what this crew needed at that moment. The food coming out of the kitchen is average at best. Still, for a relatively cheap place with ample space and good drinks, I’m not complaining. For the Seaport, it’s definitely a good option. Put this restaurant anywhere else though, and we’d keep on walking. Would I take a trip back to the seaport just to hit the Seahorse? Absolutely not. Under similar circumstances though, I’d make the same call. Thank you Twitter.
