The team behind the popular Tribeca Church Street Tavern is opening the newest Upper East Side restaurant, Wild Horse Tavern. Executive Chef Max Renny (formerly of Fatty Cue and Fatty Crab) brings a menu of yummy bar food with a ’round-the-world vibe. Selections include Beer Museels with Double Smoked Bacon, Grain Mustard, and a Hot Pretzel; Vietnamese Dip sandwich, Veggie Pot Pie with Truffled Mushrooms, Baby Carrots, Spring Peas and a Buttermilk Biscuit Crust, and the Germantown Platter which includes a selection of sausages and house-made sauerkraut and warm German potato salad.
The Tavern is also collaborating with other UES institutions to bring you their Eastide Burger –with a house blend from the Ottomanelli Bros and Butcher Shoppe, double smoked bacon from Schaller & Weber, and a potato bun from Orwasher’s Bakery. In addition, Wild Horse will also feature 12 beers on tap –including Mother’s Milk, Lagunitas, and Kelso Pilsner –as well as hand-crafted rock ‘n’ roll themed cocktails like the Smoker & Mirrors, the Whisky a GoGo, and the 10 Years Gone.
The name is an homage to the Rolling Stones song, which is no surprise since owner Charlie Sub’s father is Paul Sub, of the infamous Coventry Club in Queens, where bands such as KISS, The Ramones, and Blondie got their start. To continue with their rock ‘n’ roll heritage, Wild Horse Tavern will host live music every weekend.
