Spitzer’s is quickly becoming my “go-to” spot on the Lower East Side. I love the casualness, the lack of pretension, the long communal tables, and the low lighting.
Although I wouldn’t chose the gastropub if i was looking for an incredible meal (each entree, while tasty, is served stand alone), it’s perfect when you want a casual bite, maybe sharing a main course and a few starters. Wash it down with one of 40 beers on tap, and you can’t go wrong.
This week I tried the three cheese truffle mac and cheese, which as you can imagine, was out of this world. Their fries are also some of my favorite in the city (seasoned and plump). The herb-roasted chicken is just ok—-nothing special.
And their sliders might just win my “cutest food ever” contest.
