When I'm around Bleecker Street I always go to 1849. There's no other place like it. They've got great burgers, sandwiches, salads and Tex-Mex and other things like pasta or macaroni and cheese, all of the things that I love. Plus, they have great chicken wings for 20 cents each most days of the week. And they always seem to have some beer or drink special too. But I don't always go for the food. It's the best place to watch a game on one of the big screen TV's or just to hang out on the couches with friends. The crowd's good too. Always fun but never rowdy. I just wish this place was closer to where I live.
Maybe next time I'll take someone else's suggestion and order from the taqueria instead of reserving a table because the service was reallly slow. Not to mention, I felt like we were packed in there like sardines. I could literally reach my arm across and grab the centerpiece off the table beside me which meant we were also totally engulfed in the loud conversation from the party beside us. The food was great, but it felt like a tease when I saw how small the helpings were. I could have literally eaten three of my meals to myself. I wouldn't recommend coming here if you're A. starving and B. in a rush.
Trilby's Svengali was a character of fiction. Conversely, Marc Breed, has captivated a generation with such a unique and engaging personality that we've allowed him the ultimately luxury of a true freedom. The Art he has created, as a result of this, only seems odd; in that we view it while tinged with envy. That we in Cleveland possess such a close-up look, should be a source of extreme pride. For we may live vicariously through his artistic rampage among us. -Dr. Stanley Workman, Art History, Professor Emeritus http://artistmarcbreed.blogspot.com/
