STOUT NYC - What a change it has been!

STOUT NYC
133 West 33rd Street New York, NY 10001
212.629.6191

I don't typically go to bars or pubs, but there's one pub that I've been going to for years, because it's a nice alternative from Korean food and etc. around the 34th street area in Manhattan and because their food was always yummy, until my last visit. The food and service felt different.

During my most recent experience at STOUT NYC, Will and I asked for our typical root beer, but literally everything we asked for wasn't in stock and the server recommended a diet cream soda. That sounded bad to me, so I just stuck with a classic coke.

The servers usually bring a plate of condiments to add on our food, but this time they only brought salt and pepper.

Fried Calamari
We ordered our usual appetizer which is the fried calamari with marinara and lemon aioli sauce. I feel like they really skimped this time because during past experiences, there would be a lot of fried calamari, now I don't know what's going on. Sad to also say that the calamari was tasteless.

Wisconsin Style Thin Crust Pizza
We also ordered a Wisconsin Style Thin Crust Pizza with mushrooms and applewood smoked bacon. The pizza was crunchy as it always is, but the quality didn't taste as same and it felt cold.

Sweet Potato Fries
The highlight of the experience and the saving grace was the sweet potato fries. They came out perfect, not too sweet, and crunchy! No complaints here.

I used to love, love, love going to STOUT NYC, but I wasn't happy with the quality of the food. I am hesitant about my next trip to STOUT and I hope sincerely that it won't disappoint us.
