Beer and meat. If your affection for these isn’t typically satisfied by burgers and pitchers of generic IPAs, The Cannibal has options to set you right. Along with some hard to find draught beers, they have over 300 bottled choices. The bar works well for a casual hang with a friend, and there are some good small plates like bone marrow with beef shank ragout. If you come with a group, sit at a picnic table in covered beer garden out back, and share a large format dish like the smoked ribs or the General Tso pig’s head.

Bowery Meat Company
An East Village steakhouse that doesn’t really feel like a steakhouse. And that’s a good thing.
We keep wanting to love The Breslin as much as everyone else seems to, but we just can't get there. Partly because the food is so damn heavy, but the service sucks too. Spend your time and money at John Dory next door instead.
