Best Upper East Side Pub? Bloom’s Takes The Prize

blooms.jpg

A TRUE INTIMATE
IRISH PUB IN

NEW YORK

The Dublin City adventures and encounters of one of James Joyce’s most memorable characters,
Leopold Bloom, were made legend in the Irish writer’s literary classic, ‘Ulysses’.
Bloom’s exploits were to become so renowned, that almost 100 years after his fictional feats were made known to the world, his name lives on, not only in literary circles, but with the establishment of Bloom’s Tavern, an Irish bar/restaurant, on Manhattan’s 58th Street.
Bloom, the Dublin-born son of a Hungarian Jew and an Irish Protestant, famously mused in Ulysses how a good puzzle would be to cross Dublin City without passing a single pub.
A century later, scholars, drinkers, tourists and writers are still attempting,
and failing, to solve the conundrum.

Bloom’s Tavern, the brainchild of Irish entrepreneurs Noel Donovan, Eugene Wilson and John Mahon, is a lasting tribute to Joyce (one of Ireland’s four winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature), his literary creation Leopold Bloom, and the former’s extensive works. Tastefully decorated throughout with discreet mementoes to the iconic writer’s life and career, Bloom’s Tavern, situated on 58th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue, in New York City, is a thriving location, frequented by office workers from the nearby financial, media and technology giants, construction crews from the ongoing building projects in the neighborhood, tourists from all over the world and local residents, who delight in the accents of the staff, the Celtic-fused literary theme throughout, the extensive beer and wine lists and the ever expanding and developing menu (as well as the $1 oysters all day every day of course).
Available for private and not so private parties, Bloom’s Tavern, is also noted for being
one of New York’s few taverns with a working (and welcoming) fireplace.

So, if you’re in Dublin, attempt Mr. Bloom’s puzzle, try to cross the city, without passing a single drinking establishment, just don’t try it on Manhattan’s East 58th Street, as it may prove to be quite impossible to avoid the temptation of Bloom’s Tavern. – Michael Fitzpatrick.

THE GRILL

Rating: A MAJOR

This historically based American chophouse set in midcentury New York. It takes great inspiration from history. Both the time the Seagram Building was built and the restaurants that existed at that time. It is the precursor to the NY Steakhouse, when things were still intricate and elegant.

Always a favorite, The Grill-Room (previous name) had lost some of its luster before this stunning renovation. Now with a world class management team and chef, its is again a Manhattan MUST. Brilliantly created by Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick and Rich Torrisi.

Celebrating  the land, sea, extensive table side preparation and an extensive devotion to grilling. here is a restaurant that pays homage to one’s fantasy of the New York of bygone days and the here and now. Not to be missed.

We built a house and seven years after our arrival in Montenegro, we are proud to 10,000 vines in the village Rogami, with Zeta in Pipers (7.5 thousand vines), around the family home (2.5 thousand), and for visitors to the open door of the winery "Radević" – an esthete Wines, about which I can talk only in superlatives – explains Dr. Radević.

According to him, the winery is surrounded by good people, and for the quality of wines in charge of the young engineer. Milena Mugosa and consultant oenologist – ing. Ivan Dašić, one of the leading technologists from the golden era of the former Agrokombinat "July 13th". Such an atmosphere has resulted in the success of the 82nd International Agricultural Fair in Novi Sad, where he was awarded all twelve wine samples sent to an evaluation (5 gold medals, 4 silver and 3 bronze) and two grape brandy (grappa), which won silver medal, a Winery "Radević" also won the championship title the Novi Sad Fair and 2015-.
Dr Goran Radević says he is not a man of competitions and awards. For this assessment came under the influence of Ing. Ivana Dašić, attracted by the fact that the chairman of the commission stands doc. Dr. Vladimir Puskas (Faculty of Technology, Novi Sad), a man of science, that the blind test and that, consequently, no lies, no deception. Ideal family Radević a small winery of excellent wines, and not go to competitions and collecting awards. To do this, do not even need, because in mid-April the first shipment, through the Port of Bar, he went to America, and two restaurants in Manhattan, guests will have the privilege to drink Montenegrin wines from the winery "Radević".

Their vineyards are represented by three varieties of red grapes: Chabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cormorant (which is the backbone of their winery), and the white, Žižak (indigenous variety from the environment of Tivat, which dates from the time of Queen Teuta, III in. BC) and two spicy white – Gewurztraminer (Italy) and Malmsey aromatics (Istria).
– Wines we have given the names of the grape varieties. This year, the first time we made an exception for evaluation and a liqueur wine (instead Liqueur White wine Chardonnay, 17% alcohol), christened the name of my wife, Renee. This wine won the first gold medal for our winery and the first wine that has requested registration of the Ministry of Agriculture has just liqueur wine from Montenegro.

Grand Central Oyster Bar’s Dutch Herring Festival Finally Here THURSDAY, June 18, After Delay

oyster-bar-interior-3 (1)

Lovers of nieuwe maatjes herring imported from the Netherlands can finally celebrate the arrival of the delicacy this Thursday (June 18). The Grand Central Oyster Bar‘s annual Holland Herring Festival was delayed a week, and will finally get underway on Thursday. The first-tasting ceremony, now in its 35th year, will begin at 12:00 noon. This year’s arrival of the Dutch Herring at New York City’s Oyster Bar was originally scheduled for June 10. Three reasons cited for the delay were very low fat content in the herring; the absence of adequate sunlight to produce the plankton that the herring feed on; and stormy North Sea waters, where the herring are fetched, according to executive chef Sandy Ingber.‎

The Oyster Bar has for three decades been the traditional destination in America for the first Holland Herring of the season.  The most-looked-forward-to time of the year for herring lovers, the delicacy arrives air-expressed to the Oyster Bar from Scheveningen, The Netherlands, on the North Sea where the herring fleet makes its home. The Oyster Bar always receives the very first herring shipped to the USA, and the cream of the catch, as well. Beginning on June 18th, and for approximately two weeks thereafter, the Oyster Bar looks forward to featuring the succulent, toothsome delicacy known as nieuwe maatjes herring. Herring fanciers will enjoy the season for less than a month.   The herring filets are served with hard-boiled egg, sweet onion and chives. Herring filets are priced at $7.00, and the herring salad at $7.95 per order. Central Oyster Bar at 212-490-6650, or visit http://www.oysterbarny.com/ .
