From a kid of 4 who sold Burpee Seeds door to door, to the “The Cone Ranger,” who introduced Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to New York, to his present seat looking over New York’s beloved Heartland Brewery, Jon Bloostein is first and foremost an innovator.
This restaurant is right in the middle of Times Square (and definitely one of the better restaurant options for that area). It’s close proximity to everything is just one more reason to visit! The have a large list of beer, but also tasty cocktails and a good wine selection as well. I had their Fettuccine with Shrimp and Crab meat and my friend had their NY Strip Steak Sandwich with fries, both great options! My pasta was delicious and the drinks were great also! They have $2 dollar Jim Beam fireball shots which are dangerous, so I highly recommend getting food while you’re there!
Despite the heat, nothing is better than a fresh cold brew at the end of the day and Heartland provided that in style. With a rustic bar area right under the mixing ingredients they use to make some amazing brews, Heartland offers an enjoyable watering hole for you, your friends, and the new friends you'll make! Heartland knew their crowd and offered up some great drinking games, surely played by the staff when they're waiting for the ales to ferment and kept the night informative with a brief tour of the workshops and the large icebox that kept the audience cool at the end of the night.
They have set hours when they are open to the public and if you're a craft master and enjoy taking a tour of local breweries, I would highly recommend making your way down to check out Heartland Brewery Taproom in Brooklyn.
So I went here with co workers for lunch. Space is big and comfortable for a group. Service we great. Waiter was very nice and attentive. Our food came out quickly and hot. I wasn't thrilled with my pick. The crab and shrimp fettuccine. There was less then half an ounce of crab meat and about 4/5 shrimp. Salty and oily. Everyone else was happy with their food.
Stopped for dinner at Heartland Brewery between parts 1 & 2 of the Cursed Child, which was convenient due to the close proximity of the theater. Service was fantastic. The food on their menu fit my wife and my low-carb lifestyle very well. My 7 year old son, who is a "slow-eater," finished his kids' burger and fries in record time, which told us he REALLY enjoyed his meal. My wife and I started with the Buffalo Spring Rolls, very tasty, and we both had salad entrees, Chicken Caesar and Buffalo Chicken, respectively. I only tried their Stout, but it was delicious. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to avoid the chains in the theater district/Time Square. Heartland is going to be on my list of restaurants to go to whenever we are seeing a Broadway show. I'm looking forward to visiting again when we have more time and trying their steak and more of their brews.
Delicious! Was there with a group of 16, they were very accommodating. On point with the orders and on top of drink orders. We got coupons for a free pint, glass of wine, or slice of cheesecake (with purchase of entree). Everything was delicious. Nice selection of their own brews. Would definitely go back.
