The Pine Restaurant

37-10 114th St.
Queens, NY
(718) 672-1200

Reviews & More Info

Don’t let its attachment to a Holiday Inn fool you. Pine Restaurant is a classic, quality trattoria, as well as an unofficial clubhouse for Mets greats pre and post-game. Solid, family-size Italian fare comes in famously gargantuan portions, and is relatively inexpensive (entrées $10-30), as are beers at the Mets memorabilia-encased bar – happily priced at $4.00-$5.50 for the tides of fans that roll in each gameday.

Foley's

18 W 33rd St.
New York, NY
(212) 290-0080

Reviews & More Info

While not Mets-specific, this Midtown pub has a general focus on all things baseball, true to its credo of “an Irish bar with a baseball attitude”. Quaff a well-drawn Guinness or Magner’s among museum-exhaustive display shelves of over 300 bobbleheads and 1,800 autographed balls, along with thickets of jerseys and ticket stubs from stadiums around the nation.

Roosevelt Sports Bar

133-45 Roosevelt Ave.
Flushing, NY
(718) 463-2313

A 12-minute walk from Citi Field and a liberal buyback policy – roughly every third drink free – lift Roosevelt Sports Bar head-and-shoulders above the crowd. Friendly bartenders, a fleet of plasma TVs, and a strong contingent of Amazin’s fans to celebrate or commiserate with keep it enjoyable, no matter how the game ends.

Blondies

New York, NY
(212) 362-4360

Reviews & More Info

This Upper West Side sports temple has more screens than a Cineplex, along with famous wings that far outshine anything you’d find at the concessions stand. The sheer volume of plasma means pretty much any MLB game is a lock to be on somewhere, and requests are happily taken, though it shouldn’t be necessary – Blondie’s draws a sizeable Mets fan presence.

Phoenix Park

New York, NY
(212) 717-8181

Reviews & More Info

Named for a large park in Dublin that still contains a herd of wild deer, these Upper East Side “drinking consultants” are Mets and Jets all the way, as signed jerseys and bobbleheads attest. 16 plasma screens are complemented by a pool table and back patio, as well as a crowd of fans and Hunter college kids snagging a truly mammoth happy hour – $4 for imperial 20 oz. Bud pints every day of the week from 11:30 AM to 7 in the evening, with well drinks included on weekdays.
