The Westside Brewing Co.
I liked The Westside Brewing Co. on the upper west side, and I really enjoyed the neighborhood too, being that I'd basically never explored it before. The restaurant was crowded, and really centered on its wide variety of beers (I had one of my Belgian favorites, Kwak!). I had black bean soup and the chicken satay, both appetizers. The satay was very peanutty, which was exactly what I was hoping for. Overall the restaurant had a cool atmosphere, was packed for a Thursday evening and the service was above par. Beers were reasonably priced for their wide variety, and as a bonus each was served in its appropriate glass! If I'm back in the neighborhood, Id try it again.
