Hot dog at Old Town BarA gang of nouveau hot dogs with haute chef pedigrees rolled into town this year. But this simple classic---lowered from the second-floor kitchen via an antique dumb waiter---puts the young pups to shame. The hefty all-beef Sabre
Flatiron
Amid the swank food sanctums sprouting around Park Avenue South, this classic tavern remains a shrine to unchanging values. Most old-time Old-Towners go for the much-praised burger, which we found in need of a little salt. For lightweights, there’s a smattering of salads and other sandwiches. Some things, however, do change. Bloomberg’s antismoking legislation has made the once befogged booths and long mahogany bar strangely haze-free.

Well, this bar certainly lived up to its name, and that was alright by me.  A website that consists of only 1 page and no Wi-Fi available inside, relying on reviews was the best you could get on this location. Thankfully, I used the Time Out review on "best wings" and needed to sample these spicy treats.  The bartenders were courteous and the beer selection included some staples along with some craft samples.  The wings came and were as delicious as reported.  Done well, without being overdone, they were tangy and spicy and kept the beers flowing.  I did get a buy back as well after my 3rd beer.  I wish this "old" tradition was more prevalent in the new establishments.
