Some good things happened with covid. Ok maybe it’s a stretch but hear me out. Dress codes changed, tele-commuting is a plus, Selden got a great new spot. Neighbors Sports Bar and Grill. In terms of gastropubs this place is a stand out! There is something special happening in Selden.
At the corner of Middle Country Rd and Selden Ct, stand the newest Gastropub- Neighbors. The LIB team made a pitstop here and were pleasantly delighted. I love gastropubs. They are more casual than a full scale restaurant, and more upscale than a a deli type of establishment. Gastropubs are at the core of developing a community. They offer great foods and a meeting place for locals.
Lets talk about the food. Oh the food! Who can say no to wings? The beautiful thing about wings is it combines the delicious flavor of chicken, a nice crunch factor and shows great creativity. Neighbors nailed it!
Neighbors Dry Rub
So make it an order. One Neighbors Rub and one Neighbors Bourbon Street. Twenty perfectly cooked, sauced and meaty wings. The Neighbors Rub was a beautiful dry rub. It was mild, crunchy and had a subtle zest flavor to it. These were so good I passed on the side blue cheese. The Bourbon Street were the Dry Rub wing finished with a sweet and tangy bourbon sauce. I can’t wait to try the rest of the line up. I’m really looking forward to Sweet Thai Chili and the Caribbean Jerk. And yes, they have a wing Wednesday!

Can you have a gastropub without good burger? We enjoyed a Friendly Neighbor. What is the Friendly Neighbor? Glad you asked. 8oz burger, bacon, a grilled cheese on Texas toast and two fried eggs. The play on flavors were amazing. The Texas toast really brings it together. It was like breakfast, lunch and dinner all in one seating. This for $15, all day! We also split The Bacon Jamboree. It’s the same 8oz patty now stuffed with cheddar, WRAPPED in bacon, topped with onion and bacon jam, served on a brioche bun. If you’re a bacon fan this was to die for!
