The Sugar Bar
New York, NY 10023
Village Voice's Description
Ashford and Simpsonas most recent restaurant outing is one of only two "African" listings in Zagat. But while the ceiling is thatched and the interior is sumptuously furnished with African handicrafts, the theme doesnat extend to the food other than superficially. Nevertheless, entrA(c)es of grilled shrimp sided with fruity tomato chutney, and cinnamon-glazed pork loin were both good, as were starters of smoked, black-pepper-crusted salmon and a rich soup of squash purA(c)ed with figs. However, spicing was too timid across the board, and I was annoyed by the unannounced 18% service charge added to the check.
Tips from foursquare
Food is fantastic and reasonably priced & great spot to meet legendary celebrities especially on the Thursday open Mic night
Check out the Paul Peress all star band! They are an amazing jazz band. Lots of great energy and awesome tunes. The crab stuffed shrimp is delicious.
Have fun at the Sugar Bar! That's what the main purpose of the place is. It's the only place in NYC where u'll meet great people with a great heart and that are just genuinely abt having a gr8t time.
Awsome restaurant! Thursday nights are incredible, go here for a great time, great music, and fun celebrity sightings! Make sure to order the mac and cheese!
Nice chill vibe, cabana decor, friendly service and live music. I could make this my regular spot.
