Why The Brickyard is the Best Place to Go After the NYC Marathon
What are you supposed to do after you run the NYC Marathon? The first time I ran, I focused on whether I’d finish, not on a post-race celebration. Later that evening, I felt much better after the race than I expected, and wished we had gone for a celebratory dinner.
The second time, I met my family and we walked down to Columbus Circle. We soon realized there weren’t many group-friendly restaurants in the vicinity, and there were long waits at mediocre restaurants. We finally found a decent one that had a table for us – down a long flight of stairs that was excruciating for my sore legs to descend.
The third time, I ran with a group of relatives, and we reserved a room in a nearby, ground-level restaurant, and had a nice feast, a fitting way to celebrate our collective feat.
So if you’re running the New York City Marathon this year, or even watching it, book a table, or just come by The Brickyard Gastropub for your post-marathon lunch, dinner or celebration.
The running experts at Active.com recommend a post-race routine that includes a 15-minute walk, followed by a meal high in carbohydrates, protein and sodium.
Well, we’re at 52nd St. and Ninth Avenue, a little more than a kilometer from the finish line and almost exactly a 15 minute walk. Our new fall menu offers protein in abundance, from Kobe Beef or Chipotle Pulled Pork sliders to Steamed Cockles to Porterhouse Lamb Chops. Our Sweet Potato Poutine will provide all the carbs, potassium and sodium you need. Once you’ve properly re-hydrated, you can get additional carbs, and some pain relief, from our world-class list of 24 craft beers on tap.
And best of all, we have exactly one stair in the entire place.
So have a great run, and afterwards, don’t just get on the train and go home, or wonder around aimlessly hoping to find a place to eat. Call 212-767-0077 now or email use at Info@BrickyardNYC.com to reserve a table, or just make a warm-down beeline to the Brickyard Gastropub for your post marathon celebration this year.
