Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine Restaurant Review

: Sports fans and foodies will enjoy Walt (Clyde) Frazier’s block-long homage to basketball and American cuisine. With an Asian-inflected menu reflecting Frazier’s favorite dishes, the restaurant offers serious cooking in a setting marked by tributes to one of the Knicks’ greatest players. Overhead, a ceiling of Frazier’s signature shirts attracts momentary attention away from the 50-plus TV screens showing sports non-stop. Cocktails are named after some of Frazier’s signature basketball quotes: “Loosey Goosy,” “Stumbling and Bumbling” and “Moving and Grooving.” Chef David Waltuck offers his take on guacamole as a starter, pairing it with wasabi and lotus crisps. Main courses span the U.S. for inspiration, with mac ‘n’ cheese, burgers and blackened Scottish salmon, and add Asian accents via Thai lobster curry with jasmine rice. While you wait, you can duck into the half court at the end of the bar and shoot hoops with your mates. If Frazier is at the restaurant, he’ll happily visit your table and sign autographs.
