Deep in the confines of a nearly windowless basement on 7th Street, there is a transportive Euro-style gastropub featuring an array of beers from far and wide (12 on tap and 29 by the bottle) and wines (a good array, with several by the glass), as well as snacks that transcend the chicken fingers, nachos, and potato skins you'd expect at a pub. Because this is Jimmy's No. 43, where food is not a second thought. The bar offers regular wine and brewery tastings and dinners, and an array of seasonal, local menus and events. To call the food "snacks" minimizes the reality—there's a full blue-plate special on Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays that will run you just $15 with a pint, plus oysters, burgers, shrimp and grits, and mussels. But there are bona fide snacks, too, including addictive spiced candy walnuts, mini skillet-fried beer sausages with Dijon mustard, blistered, salty shishito peppers that were once described to us by a waitress as "like popcorn" (they are!), and the requisite cheese plate. This is not your grandpa's bar food—or maybe, actually, it is. 43 East 7th Street, 212-982-3006, (10003)
