If you like to drink obscure beers and eat various dairy products, you’ll be a fan of Milk & Hops. It’s a little place in Chelsea that looks kind of like a fancy grocery store, with a bar inside where you can eat a sandwich or a meat and cheese plate, and fridges filled with a bunch of different beers you won’t find at your average bodega. Bring a friend who sometimes talks about different kinds of beer even when you aren’t interested, and hang out for an hour two at one of the tables along the wall.

Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine
In truth, without a basketball court and Walt Clyde Frazier's involvement, we wouldn’t be talking about the Wine and Dine. The space is massive, the layout is clunky, but the food is pretty good. If you're a hoops fan, it's a must visit.
