As a South Park Slope resident, I was rather happy to see a restraunt/pub open up close to my place. Like any neighbor should, you give the place a shot, which I did..3 times. With an open mind and high hopes, for an otherwise bar-less end of 5th ave, my girlfriend and I went in for dinner..probably around the second week Sidecar was open. The food was absolutely terrible. Granted..for your second week of business, your menu isn't tweaked...your cooking oil isn't seasoned...you dont have a liquor license..But hey, a least have some good service! SHEESH! Anyway, my second experience with sidecar wasn't any better. The place had been open for at least a year, and the food was still terrible, (the fries still tasted like old bar peanuts and the burgers still tasted like boot leather) and the service was third rate, at best.
Pros: Cool looking place
Cons: service, food, beer selection, wine selection
