Call me "crazy"... but I love to walk down sidewalks. I love old buildings and houses too.
Like all good pubs. it is an eating establishment as well. Here is the menu, the backside of the menu is a listing of the wines and beers they serve.
Here is my coaster:
Geo went for the 74th St. Gumbo, a dish with chicken, sausage, shrimp and vegetables served over rice. It was a rather spicy dish... a bit of a sailors stew, I would say, not really y kind of thing, but he loved it. He detected the sichuan pepper spice right away. It was really good with the bread they served with it.
I went for the Ruben sandwich....
...It was corned beef, Swiss, (house made) sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing on toasted rye bread. I choose the cucumber salad for a side. I didn't know it would come with peanuts on it. This was surprise and most unusual to me. I kinda liked it. The Rueben was really, really good! IT was so good Geo wanted to help me eat it.
The decor was simple, the scene a little bit trendy...(an art deco neon "Drugs" sign was lit up over the door.) I even got to read a local independent underground kinda "rag."
Our food was great, our server was fantastic....and afterwards we went for a walk looking at some of the spectacular neighborhod houses along the City Tour route.
The Elk's kitchen hours are Sun, Mon, Tues, Wed 11am to 10pm/ Thurs, Fri, Sat 11am to 11pm, and you can get take out food too, but it will cost you 25 cents extra each.
