Death Ave Restaurant & Brewing Co Ratings and Reviews
Reluctant to leave a review cause I don't want this hidden gem to get too much attention. Soo Death Ave is kind of that answer to the 'I want to do something chill and fun, not too expensive and that's different' ..Which is a daily challenge in NYC.. So this is pretty much everything you're looking for.. If you want a low key dinner it's perfect.. if you want a fun bar scene of quality people that's not full of loud amateurs, this is the spot.. if you want a casual nice glass of wine and a quick app it's perfect.. a group of friends, it's amazing.. the outdoor garden after work is always my spot and the tap room next door is my new go to for after drinks now that's cooling down and for weekend football obviously..While I'm not a big beer drinker they have a great selection of cocktails and wines and my friends always love their beers. Just a solid, low key spot that's good anytime. Very much recommended unless it starts getting too packed then don't come cause I kind of want it all to myself!!!
We had a wonderful experience here. We saw coverage of this restaurant by a notable reviewer on cable TV. The dishes looked tasty and the ambiance look incredible. As a result, my boyfriend and I decided to try it the next night. We came in an hour before closing and the service was still on point. The owner/management came by our table himself to see how everything was going to and to confirm we had everything we needed. I highly recommend the tacos and the sliders. Although I'm no a beer drinker, one could definitely appreciate the setup and selection. On f thither things that stood out to me were the thin cut fries, which I find are rare in Mediterranean inspired restaurants, and also a deal maker:-). I love the cut and the taste of the fries, along with our experience altogether. Definitely give this place a try! We will be back!
Sunday funday! Soo... a small group of us were headed to Death Ave for brunch and to have a little fun in their outdoor garden before meeting up with others at a sports bar for Sunday football. What we didn't realize was Death Ave opened a sports bar/brewpub next door and it's f'n awesome! We spent all afternoon there eating their pizza's and trying their beers and forced the other group to leave their spot and come meet us! We had a large area right in the front all to ourselves and took in the games. The manager was super nice and put on a couple different games so everyone could watch their team! Service was super friendly and the crowd was a good mix of tourists from The Highline and locals. We ended up meeting a lot of people and I think my gf might have met her future husband but it might have just been the beer talking!
Amazing Sunday, we'll be back for sure.
Quality hidden gem with a unique historic charm that is long lost with most places in the city.
Was very impressed with the feta burger which was super juicy and flavorful and paired with their own IPA it's pretty hard to beat. Despite being pretty busy the service was very attentive and friendly and they knew exactly when to come over for a refill on our beers.
Always great to find a new solid spot you know will never disappoint. Highly recommended.
Don't let the name put you off. We came here for brunch with kids, they were able to hang out in the backyard area while the food was being prepared. Scrumptious, inventive dishes meant for sharing (we had sliders, breakfast toast, and tacos). Excellent cocktail list. Friendly, attentive service - we had the whole rear section to ourselves on a Sunday, even though nearby similar restaurants were booked out - can't figure out why, as the food exceeded our expectations! Definitely will be back.
Chocolate flavored beer wasn't impressive for $11.00 and cocktail taste like soap .
Fresh cod fish should not smell fish
But smell so fish and over cooked and
Sauce was not really goes with cod at all.
Fried pickle was the only thing we can bite but pickle slice was so thick so make it too salty.
I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.
On a recommendation from a colleague I stopped in for lunch with a couple friends.
We decided to try out the new Tap Room and try out their flatbread pizza's and house made beers. I ordered Greek Salad pizza and absolutely devoured the entire thing which is a pretty big portion. The others ordered the margarita pizza which I'm guessing is amazing because he refused to share and a spinach pie pizza which I tried and loved as well. We sampled a few of their beers, all were easy to drink and really well made. The stout for me was particularly impressive. We did have a round of Jalapeno tequila's to complete our highly enjoyable experience. Very comfortable, casual space, service is super friendly... my only regret is living on the East side because I will be crossing town very very often to visit.
My yelp review (one star):
Don't go here. I thought it sounded like a great option for me and a few of my friends to go for drinks and dinner. The building itself was incredibly hot, humid and uncomfortable. The service wasn't impressive - it was slow and each person seemed like they were new and unaccountable. In fact, a server came over with drinks and and provides 4/5 of the drinks on his tray and said "and someone else had something else?" It was mine and I asked if he knew what it was before putting it in front of me. He said no, took a minute, sniffed it in front of us and put it down saying, "this must be it."
They also brought out my entree 10-15 minutes before anyone else's. I ordered the octopus and despite being very optimistic m, it was a disappointing dish overwhelmed by the flavor of the beans it was served with.
The beers, despite being labeled a "brewery," took extremely long (15-20 min) to bring out and they offered nothing other than their own 4-5 personal brews. In fact, our waitress suggested we order something other than beer since they "take a while to bring out."
The prices were about average for the location (NoMad) but were not in line with the quality or service we expected.
I don't expect this place to be around very long. And even if it is, I won't be visiting. They have a lot of potential, but have not even close to being a decent restaurant, bar or brewery.
The lunch time staff were VERY slow and did not come to check on us. It took over 20 minutes to get them to take our order. The food is good with some unique ingredients. It took another 20 minutes to get them to bring the check. If you sit in one of the private booths don't expect them to see you.
Service was excellent and we enjoyed a private meal before going to Sleep no More around the corner. Byzantine sausage, steak skewers, and truffle fries were very good. Baby lamb chops were over cooked and sub par. Our server was knowledgeable and professional. I was impressed with his demeanor and explanation of the menu.
Here's the problem. The manager? Owner? Head jerk? Bearded fool occupying either the far table facing the front door or standing behind the bar ignoring customers and berating staff. You'll know him when you see him.
Some of the finest restaurants in the world are run with an iron fist, but the patrons should only see the velvet glove. Your bad day and poor attitude should never dull your customers experience. This boorish fool is a blight on a beautiful restaurant, an impressive staff, and what should be a relaxing meal.
I recommend this establishment only for the staff and above average food. Value is lost when this man is present.
This place is super fun. Where else can you get a black martini made with squid ink?! The service is extremely warm and friendly but totally professional. The drinks are fabulous, the food is delicious and prepared with love. This visit was only my second, a couple years apart, and I'd forgotten what a delightful find it is. I'll make an effort to get back more often. Really great. Moussaka interpretation I found supremely fantastic. And the privacy of the booths is so rare and just what I love in a restaurant when you want to focus on your friends and the conversation. So respectful.
Amazing food and good food choices for various tastes. They have little booths for privacy and the noise level is very acceptable for an NYC restaurant. The decor is really beautiful with brick and reclaimed wood and iron.
Service was reasonably fast.
It's a bit pricey for what it is, but it's NYC, so to be expected.
Lovely little spot on ugly 10th Avenue. Decor is stylish and there are 2-3 enclave booths that can be curtained off for privacy. Outdoor space looks great. Food though is meh. And waaaay over priced for what it is. Brunch, for example, $18 for an egg bacon and cheese? WInes by the glass $15 - 18. No way. Burgers were fair. Fries, average. Those souvlaki tacos, fair. Salads had a very bland dressing. Wanted to love it as it is a charming space and staff is lovely but everything was just mediocre and overpriced.
A good find in a neighborhood with few options. Menu is eclectic, with lots of fun, casual versions of greek food, e.g. souvlaki taco, greek-inspired sliders. There were serious, traditional dishes as well, though we didn't try them. I doubt the cuisine would win many Michelin stars, but it was tasty, the portions were generous, and overall the atmosphere was warm and festive. The space looks thoroughly renovated and is quite handsome, yet not too slick, still warm and welcoming. A nice place for casual dining. I would definitely return when in the area.
