New York Habitat: Not quite a dive bar but certainly not an upscale joint, just a good local spot. They've got pool, darts, and even a basketball game to pass the time. Plus who can argue with free potato chips?
David D: Great addition to the UES. Solid burgers, great beer selection on tap, and all reasonably priced. Wait till after 7pm to go, otherwise you'll be dining with every pre-schooler in the neighborhood.
