Bondurants is a little neighborhood bar on the Upper East Side where you can eat some Southern-style comfort food and drink something good. They have a good draft beer list, they make some good cocktails, and they have a large selection of American whiskey. So if you’re in the market for some chicken tenders and an obscure bourbon, this is where you want to go. Rest assured, this place is very casual.
