At first glance, Grand Cen­tral Bar & Grill could be any old sports pub—cheap beers and fatty bar food with a 90s hit playlist… but gen­er­ous Amer­i­can-size por­tions, well-ex­e­cuted fla­vors and a stylish two-story space make this pub a din­ing des­ti­na­tion in and of it­self.

HIT A de­cent plate of na­chos can be hard to come by in this city, but the ver­sion at Grand Cen­tral in­stantly curbed our crav­ings ($128): stretchy, melty ched­dar cheese cling­ing to crispy tor­tilla chips, with home­made guac, pico de gallo and smoked chicken slices for extra meati­ness. The buffalo wings ($134) were like­wise fan­tas­tic—deep-fried fla­vor bombs doused in the ad­dic­tive duo of hot sauce and but­ter. To top off the calorific meal, we dug into a choco­late lava cake ($82), which was baked in a cast iron skil­let to con­tain the molten choco­late. With a gi­ant scoop of ice cream melt­ing through the cracks, this was a worth­while in­dul­gence.

MISS While the IPA beers were solid, the ly­chee mar­tini had that sickly-sweet taste of Blue Cu­ra­cao—only ac­cept­able at frats and neon-themed bach­e­lorette par­ties.

BOT­TOM LINE Fatty bar foods at gen­er­ous por­tions and wal­let-friendly prices, in a clean and com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment. Open Mon-Fri noon-mid­night; Sat-Sun 11am-mid­night. $$
