If you’re in Northwest and you want a good: old man/hipster/student/off-work cabbie/drunk girl/normal folk/mingle bar, Yur’s is the spot. It has a long bar and a ton of comfortable booths, and a regular mix of interesting folk who aren’t snobs or fashionistas. AND there are pool tables and darts!
Get off the subway and quit picking your quiz-nose. Here's a deli that isn't affiliated with a national chain and sources most of their ingredients locally. At East Side you get your choice between a six or twelve inch sandwich on Portland French or Dave's Killer breads with your choice of a plethora of toppings. Boars Head meats, cheeses and condiments along with vegetables from Uncle Paul's Produce right down the street. Have it cold, get it toasted. It's all good here and your money gets recycled into the local economy!
