This week I found myself at two beautiful Bronx bars for happy hour.
Tuesday, I met up with a friend to catch up at Pine Bar & Grill on Eastchester Rd. Every time I come here and see the elegant decor, I always wonder why I don’t come here more often. They have a really great rooftop as well, perfect for enjoying a cocktail on a summer night. But, alas, it wasn’t open when we were there. We ordered the mango mojitos, which were delicious and not too minty. My friend ordered the fish tacos, while I had the Po’ Boy pulled pork sliders. Both of our dishes were flavorful and affordable, my favorite combination.
Last night, I caught up with another friend and we decided to check out the newest bar in Norwood, Lexa Bar. With exposed brick walls, the wall adorned with the names of Bronx neighborhoods, I think I’ve finally found my local go-to bar. The bartender was super sweet and attentive. We started off with mojitos (….lot of mojitos this week!) which are $5 on Thursdays and ordered cheeseburgers. To be honest, I didn’t love the burger as it was a bit too salty, but they have a bunch of other items on their menu I’d love to try, from flatbread pizzas to salads and wraps. Best of all, I was able to stroll back home in ten minutes.
