Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
At first glance, the Hideaway seems like just another neighborhood pub featuring a surly bartender, the Rolling Stones on the stereo, a framed portrait of Jerry Garcia on the wall and the Jets game up on the flat-screen TV. Then you notice the big guy lurking in chef’s whites, the slim kitchen, the $32 steak frites on the menu and the $250 bottle of Caymus behind the bar near the Jaeger. This tiny labor of love from chef Alex Oefeli, formerly of Raoul’s, seems awfully ambitious for a glorified sports bar. Sadly, aside from the delicious smoked deviled eggs, Oefeli’s simple-though-striving gastropub fare is about as exciting as a 30-minute meal from Rachael Ray: The lone salad on the menu tasted dull, a skirt steak seemed oversaturated with a chili-based rub when we sampled it and the crispy chicken wasn’t especially crispy. You might want to stop by for a beer, but this is no place to hide away and feast.
