Dr. Watson’s Now Open

The new old Dr. Watson’s is back open on South 11th Street. Under the stewardship of its original owner, the now 74 year old Barry Sandrow. Changing the name from Doc Watson’s to Dr. Watson’s seems like a sure-fire way to get beyond the sizable shadow of the bar’s scandalous past under Daniel Flynn, where the bar was caught with nearly 100 underage drinkers hiding out in a 4th floor apartment.

Burgers at the Dr. Watson’s are $6.75 and the fillet and veal dishes are the most expensive, at $18.95.
