One of my sons lives a few miles from Cinder Bar and pre pandemic we would meet there for dinner and drinks on Friday nights. Cinder Bar has excellent pizza, the most amazing Deviled Eggs of any restaurant I’ve ever been to. I know its a simple dish, but simple dishes done well is sometimes the hardest thing.
My family loves the pizza, but my favorite meal is the Short Rib Cheesesteak.
The meat is just mouth watering. Juicy and full of flavor that is just rich and decadent. The fontina cheese, aioli, and caramelized onions just combine into the most amazing bite – every bite. The sandwich is rich. Its not huge, but somehow it fills me up more than sandwiches twice its size.
What I’m trying to say is that the food is really good.
So what do I normally drink with my meal? A Manhattan of course.
While my Basil Hayden’s Manhattan was amazing, its just a fraction of what’s available at Cinder Bar. This is a real Whiskey Drinker’s restaurant. The Whiskey Menu is so large it takes up multiple pages on the menu.
Cinder Bar has a great selection of Irish whiskeys.
I can’t even get a screen capture of the full Whiskey Menu because its several pages long. But you can view it here. There are six pages of whiskey to choose from.
When it comes to having a great selection of Whiskeys and amazing food, you can’t go wrong with Cinder Bar.
Cinder Bar is scoring 96/100, putting near the very top of places I Will Go Back to. Like most things in life you pay for quality, and Cinder Bar is not cheap if you have a few drinks, appetizers, and everyone eats an entrée.
Is it worth it? Yes it is. I have yet to have a bad meal here.
