Don’t let the 2nd Avenue construction keep you from checking out Heidelberg Restaurant in Yorkville! Then walk over to Glaser’s Bake Shop for dessert. :) Thanks to MUG, for pointing out this area of the city and it’s history to me!
Note: Yes, Heidelberg offers beer served in a glass boot but be prepared to lay down a deposit for it. And since I’ve visited it looks like they are currently undergoing some changes w/ their menu but no worries - their bar is still open! :)
