Pounds & Ounces

IMG_1124On 18th and 8th Avenue is an artsy restaurant you will love from the second you walk in the doors with the biggest burgers, best cocktails, and all around eclectic menu. From Ahi Tuna “Nachos” that will knock your socks off to Fried Chicken Lollipops, there isn’t one thing you won’t love about the Pounds & Ounces menu.

The district of Chelsea its hot, hot, hot! Let Pounds & Ounces be your next stop when dining in this chic NYC area. I recommend starting off with the Firecracker cocktail which is spicy and addicting. The muddled blackberries and jalapeno infused St. Germain will have you singing to a new tune! Pair this one with the ever delicious Waffle Battered Chicken Pops and you have yourself an excellent start.

IMG_1123The Ahi Tuna Nachos are perfect for sharing as I could barely get through the entire thing, but pair this dish with the Rose Can You See cocktail for a top notch food and booze experience. The nachos are light and very unique topped with a salty seaweed salad that goes great with this cocktail as well as the firecracker.

IMG_1128For the burger lovers, you’re in for a real treat. The biggest burger lives here at Pounds & Ounces and will wow you with its impressive height. A big beef burger topped with an even bigger onion ring topped with a large brioche bun and a side of fries. This one pairs well with the Huck Fizz cocktail and or a nice big spicy red wine like a glass of the Malbec or Meritage (red wine blend).

Between the Lavender Sandwiches and the Triple Chocolate Pretzel Parfait you will be in heaven if you have a sweet tooth. End the evening and delicious dinner with some bubbles… because you deserve to celebrate yourself!

IMG_1131Head to Pounds & Ounces for the delectable dining options, artsy ambiance, and great service. The staff is warm and attentive and the modern art infused atmosphere is just what you need in this busy big apple!
