The Grand Delancey falls in the category of massive bars where people regularly hang out at 3pm on Sundays and drink craft beer while their kids run around chasing each other with bubble wands. But those kinds of places don’t usually exist in the middle of the Lower East Side, which makes this spacious spot very useful. There are fifty beers on tap, with an impressive mix of stuff from New York-based breweries, Europe, and places like Vermont, Iowa, and Virginia. And, since it’s in the The Market Line, you can order in snacks from any of the neighboring vendors like Veselka pierogies, pickle plates, and dumplings from Nom Wah.
