There is some great news for fans of the 39th Street corridor, the awful Minsky's located there has finally shut down. That place was awful. Awful food, awful service, awful building. But on the bright side, kids could chase the numerous mice in the place around for entertainment while waiting on the food.
Well, the place has been completely gutted and it will soon open as the Hi-Dive Lounge. I got a sneak peak of the newly refurbished insides the other day and the place looks great. Nice and clean without feeling like your in some sort of fancy Plaza bar.
The food will be classy yet approachable bar fare and the beer menu will feature everything from standard yard brews to tasty select irish whisky. And while I didn't yet see any TV's plastered on the walls, it's sure to become the sports viewing destination for 39th Street neighborhoods. The place should be up and running within a month and I'll be sure to provide a good review after I've has a chance to try it out a few (dozen?) times. I have a tough job writing for this blog, but I will endeavor to drive on.
