At Five Boroughs Brewing Co. You Can Taste Dylan Sprouse's Beer
El Castillo De Yaque is the kind of hole-in-the-wall spot you visit for the food no matter what it looks like or how cramped the tables are—it’s uber cheap, uber authentic Latin American cuisine with rich, zesty plates that all come served with a perfect accompaniment of hot, buttered toast. Eat your heart out over platters of shared Paella, a sizzling Fried Pork Chop (Chuleta), and expertly marinated Roast Pork (Pernil). Add ample sides, go for the sweet plantains, the cassava, the essential rice, and beans for a satisfying Spanish meal that’ll bring all the heartiness and spice you need to stay warm in the winter. Don’t forget to order some of their excellent empanadas.
This meal calls for some good beer and space to stretch out in after—enter Five Boroughs Brewing Co. It’s a spacious, friendly and open-aired bar space with high stools and lots of different craft beers to get you curious and excited. From featuring beers like Dylan Sprouse’s brew to an excellently sour and salty Gose, its devotion to craft beer means you’re getting the best of the best in the contemporary beer scene—and in New York, that’s saying something.
