|Decor from Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine|
The room is decorated with more pictures of Frazier at various points of his career, and even the menus are adorned with snakeskin and leather patterns that look like they come from Frazier's colorful cowboy boots. The extensive menu (designed by consulting chef David Waltuck) tries to reach beyond the pub-grub that b-ball fans might expect, while chicken wings and burgers are certainly available, there are also dishes like a veal chop Milanese with lemon anchovy vinaigrette (for $38 - so hopefully you did well in your betting pool). If you have trouble deciding, certain dishes are marked with red stars - the menu notes that these are "Clyde's favorites." Food can be paired with drinks like the "Stumbling and Bumbling" - a mix of Patron, strawberries and basil.
The highlight of the space has to be the small basketball court that's off to the side in the lounge where guests can take aim with free throws on a regulation-sized hoop. It's great for a game of HORSE if there isn't a crowd - just be shore to loosen up first, either with some practice or with the "Loosey Goosey" cocktail. Though it's not marked as one of Clyde's favorites, with a name like that, do you really care?
The restaurant is located at 485 10th Avenue (212-842-1110).
