I won't give away my favorite time of day to go, because then more people will show up, but really, anytime is good time to go there. It does get really crowded at times, but just grab a beer (from a nice selectio, i might add)stake out a little piece of space and hang out. If you do get a table or bar stool, try what i consider to be the best grilled cheese ever! it's got just he right amount of cheese that melted enough on brad that's toasted just right and just a tad salty. Have that with a nice beer, heaven!

Amazing beer bar. So many choices. Take a seat at the bar and ask for advice and the bartenders will get you something that fits you. The chalkboard menu has some tasty dishes. Have the lamb wrap. Seriously. One of the best wraps I ever had. Beer is back!

It gets very crowded but it's still worth it. Consistently the best beer selection in the Village, at reasonable prices (by NYC standards), and with better service than you'd get in other places in that league.

I just went to the new Blind Tiger last night and was glad to know that they have hard cider on tap. They used to sell it in large bottles at their old space, but this was the good stuff. Anyhow, the food was good. They have a happy hour that lasts until 8 pm. So for a weeknight get together it's a good place as long as you're ok with shouting to your companions.

The Tiger's moved! It's new digs are at 281 Bleeker (corner of Jones St.) and are absolutely gorgeous. The expanded kitchen is turning out delicious pressed sandwiches and the coffee’s better than Starbucks (ironic because their old location has become one). However, there is a slight problem. In an State Liquor Authority-induced twist of fate, a bar once known for having two dozen beers on tap and for being an extremely serviceable local watering hole is now sans liquor license. Read Dave's cry to the neighborhood for help: "We still don't know when we'll be getting our liquor license, though we did find out one of the reasons it's been delayed - Deborah Glick, the assemblywoman who represents our district, wrote a letter to the State Liquor Authority saying our license should be rejected because we're a bar rather than a restaurant, "a large bar that primarily serves beer," and that isn't what Bleecker Street needs. I wrote her a nice letter explaining how we actually have an excellent kitchen and that we're opening as an espresso bar and cafe. Ms. Glick prides herself on protecting neighborhood businesses, which is what I always thought we were. I suggested that rather than judge us without ever visiting or calling, she stop by for a coffee and a pressed sandwich. Actually, according to the State Liquor Authority, her letter and influence is the most damning thing against us. I was wondering whether you might visit her website and write her a note explaining that we're actually a quality place that happens to cater to a lot of her constituents. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org I'm sure she would enjoy hearing from you." Please also take the time to sign the petition (www.petitiononline.com/newtiger/) to get the Tiger a new Liquor License. Let’s show Assemblywoman Glick that the Tiger brings many people from all over to spend money and get a quiet drink in her district so the Tiger can once again be the Best Beer Bar in the city.

Have been to Blind Tiger a couple times and I have to say that the Paninis are great. They are not greasy like some places make them and all the ingredients were fresh and tasted great. The average price of the sandwhich is a little high but they are still great. I also love the look of the place. It has a very homey/cottagey feel to it, and the service has been good so far for me. They just need to get the beer in there so they can focus on coffee and baked goods in the morning and the beer and the sandwhiches later on. Keep up the good work, guys.

It is new...so I will give them the benefit of the doubt. But service has been so-so. I just had a bagel with cream cheese the first day -the cream cheese is excellent - But they managed to mess up the order. Also, a very random menu. It is bar food and coffee. I just don't picture people eating chicken wings with a latte. But maybe that is just me.
