The Wall Street Journal 4/5/12"Slightly Oliver" means slightly drunk in cockney slang. And it is pretty easy to get that way at the sophisticated new Upper West Side bar of the same name.
511 Amsterdam Ave
New York, NY
This exciting new addition to the chic lax neighborhood of the Upper West Side is exactly what the doctor ordered: choice upon choice of gourmet cocktails. We can’t help but fiend for the unique tastes and flavors of Albert Trummer’s Apotheke-styled cocktails (ranging from $8-$12) like the Last Night in Paris- whiskey, absinthe, Claro and spiced rum with fresh mint reduction, house spices and pink grapefruit juice. And with their own in-house distillery, you’re not only getting fresh ingredients, you’re also getting fresh liquor. And if you’re hungry, they have options hailing from Mother England like the Lardon & Poached Egg Flatbread, starting at $8. www.thrillist.com

Serious Eats 4/22/13The grilled cheese itself is a study in buttery sandwich decadence: sharp, pungent cheddar is melted between thick slices of rich brioche that flakes apart with every bite.
Andrew C.11/19/11Downtown has arrived uptown at this "new favorite" spot on the UWS. Top notch drinks, tasty gastopub food with a great atmosphere make this a place that will exceed expectations seven nights a week.
Danielle L.2/23/13Onion rings and fried artichokes are fantastic! Drinks are just okay - get an actually tasty $8 punch instead of a $14 "tasty cocktail."
