BWW Reviews: THE SUPPLY HOUSE is a Great Bar and Grill on the UES
The Supply House is an Upper East Side restaurant that gives you everything you want. It's a lively, straightforward restaurant and bar scene with a comfortable, intelligent presentation. One visit will never be enough. You will return again and again for dinner, brunch or late night fare.
Usually, UES spots are forced to compromise, all fun and no comfort, or vice versa, but never here. Instead, you'll find a spacious main dining area and a welcoming bar. The venue is designed to make the most of The Supply House's urban-industrial motif with exposed brick, good lighting and complete authenticity.
Enjoy your time here, enjoy it profoundly because this is a great place to bring old friends and make new ones. With delicious, hearty spins on appetizers, salads, burgers, tacos and cocktails, the menu must have been enormous fun to create. And it's enormous fun to sample and savor.
Eye-opening combinations of familiar flavors are The Supply House specialty. For many, the go-to appetizer is the Firecracker Calamari, tossed in sweet chili sauce. The portion is ideal for easy sharing and the flavor is completely winning. The same virtues can be seen in the entrees. The Buffalo Chicken Tacos are a perfect medley of crispy, spicy, and tangy flavors, with just enough lettuce and tomato to make a perfect presentation. In the burger department, The Supply house has distinctive recipes like their Hot Coffee Burger. The burger itself is "Coffee-crusted," topped with mozzarella, garnished with smoky Supply Sauce and potent jalapenos for an extra kick and served on an English muffin. And be sure to order a few sides for your table like their Sweet Potato Fries or the Bacon Brussels Sprouts.
Already ideal for a glass of beer or wine from their fine selection and and a round of appetizers, The Supply House also offers a can't-miss cocktail menu. It offers favorite classics like the Dark and Stormy and their own Old Fashioned. And their signature recipes are complete crowd-pleasers. The "Cool as a Cucumber" is great for summer. But with its cucumber-infused vodka and fresh lime juice, its Manhattan-meets-Margarita taste makes it a favorite for all seasons. Drinks like The Cloudy Apple with Jameson, apple juice and cinnamon dust or their Salty Dog with Hendricks gin, fresh red grapefruit juice and sea salt rim will also delight cocktail enthusiasts.
To top off The Supply House experience, order a slice of the popular Mallomar Mint Chip Pie. Enjoying the ample, deliciously chilly dessert is both a feat and a delight.
