Lockdown Bar & Grill | Ukrainian Village/East Village | Music Bar, Patio /Beer Garden, Bar/Lounge, Burgers | Bar
Bar and "virtual venue" filled with flat-screen TVs showing concert videos (there's a schedule on the Web site); the food is surprisingly good.

Our Review

Catty-corner to the Empty Bottle, this bar-cum-restaurant differentiates itself from other burger zones with Disney-like prison decor like jailhouse iron bars. There's a higher ratio of flat-screens to humans than you've probably encountered anywhere, but despite all that noise, the food shows a sure hand in the kitchen. The hideously named but absolutely delicious "Cruelty to Animals" is a burger crowned with chorizo, prosciutto, and bacon and garnished with arugula and red onion. There are even some respectable vegetarian options like the house-made hummus and baba ghanoush. Macaroni and cheese was gluey, but the fresh, hand-cut french fries are a worthy mate to fine draft and bottle brews. Capacious outdoor seating includes a sidewalk cafe and a beer garden open nightly.
