Central Asian Cuisine Goes Well With 3-Story Beer Halls In Midtown
Perfect for when you and your person feel like going under the radar and trying something fresh and flavorful, Farida Central Asian Cuisine & Grill boasts the only menu of its kind in the whole city. Dishes like meat or pumpkin samsa—delicate and richly filled puff pastries—compliment juicy grilled kebabs and steaming soups, stocked with vegetables and spices, for a holistically satisfying meal. Hailing from the regions of Uzbek, Kazakh, Uyghur, and Tadjick, this zesty little spot is exactly where you want to take your dining curiosity one step further.
When you’re done sampling novel tastes and twists at Farida, take your babe for a swig at Beer Authority, a spacious 3-story mahogany beer hall with 90 global craft beers on tap and another hundred bottled beers to boot. The sprawling wooden rooms mean securing a table overlooking our beloved Times Square is a done deal, and there’s even a rooftop to stroll on if you feel like it. Plus, there's notoriously good bar food here, and the kitchen is open late, late, late, so you’ll have plenty of time to work up an appetite again.
