Clyde Frazier’s Wine & Dine combines the funky flair of Walt “Clyde” Frazier, the fun of shooting hoops in a game of basketball and the fine dining of New York City. I’ve had this restaurant on my “To Do” list for a long time. I knew it was the perfect spot for date night or even happy hour. I decided to venture to Clyde Frazier’s restaurant for Happy Hour where they offered $6.00 margaritas, beer’s and well drinks. Drinks, Food, Hoops, sounds like the perfect combination to me.
Upon entering the restaurant I was pleasantly surprised to see that it isn’t a normal sports bar which for some reason I assumed it was. It actually is a classy fine dining restaurant with photos of Clyde himself and to the back of the restaurant is a private room with a basketball hoop.
The basketball hoop was my first stop. I shot some hoops which I must add, I’m pretty good at and really enjoyed myself. Ladies, your boyfriend will love the fact that you can be “girlie” and also shoot some hoops with him. Guys, this isn’t your chance to show off your “I want to be like Clyde” skills. It’s the perfect time to have fun with the lady who was with you shooting in the gym. 😉
After that, I went to the bar and ordered my margarita. It actually was delicious. I’m actually not a fan of tequila but I loved it. I didn’t order any food for myself but I did get a chance to taste the classic burger and fries. To my surprise, it had the number “10” imprinted in the bun. Clyde’s number when he played for the New York Knicks. I do plan on returning for dinner one day.
Clyde Frazier’s is the perfect restaurant for date night. It’s also a great place to watch basketball games, especially since it is March Madness. They are also hosting a March Madness Bracket Contest.
