This joint puts up some solid pub food. I came in with a group of food bloggers to help them promote their Stanley Cup game night specials (the joint is owned by an ex-NY Ranger). Anyway, here’s what we had:
These are breaded and served lollipop style. I liked them, despite generally having less of a preference for breaded wings.
Stacked high with tons of toppings. Really good.
Boneless Chicken Wings
For the vagina in your group who doesn’t want any bones. Still good though – and also breaded.
A little too salty for me, but I liked the texture and sauce.
I loved that this was on a hot dog potato bun. They said they usually serve it on different bread but ran out. I say stick with the hot dog bun. It was great. Low budget and tasty.
This was nice and basic too, but well executed. For $11 this is a great deal (fries were $3 extra, shoestring style, and very nicely cooked). Their “77 Sauce” is like a Big Mac sauce. Dig it.

I’ve been meaning to check out Death Avenue because I was always intrigued by the name. Death Avenue was the notorious nickname given to 10th Avenue due to all of the railway deaths that occurred there in the old days, when trains ran vertically up and down the avenue to service the warehouse and meat packing districts.
In any event, the joint is Greek-inspired, but also had some classic American staples like burgers and BBQ.
The cocktail list is excellent.
I tried the Banana Bourbon, which was light and smooth, and definitely banana-infused. My wife tried the Mastiha Mint (Mastiha is a kind of tree – its sap or extract is used in the drink). It was refreshing like a mojito.
We started with fried pickles. Pretty basic. The dips were interesting: a BBQ cause, tzatziki and some kind of hollandaise-isa sauce. The pickles were tasty, but the batter slipped off too easily.
My wife ordered the 8 Hour Octopus app as her entree. This was pricey at about $26, but it was tasty and somewhat substantial enough to eat as an entree if needed.
I had the Feta Burger. This was stacked way too tall, but overall it was a decent enough burger to satisfy my cravings. The oregano fries that came with it were great.
I’d say this was a great place to have a few drinks and snacks, but I’d skip making a whole meal out of it.
