UPPER EAST SIDE. If you want to see the preferred watering hole of quite a few of the New York Rangers, try this rather eclectic bar and grill. The Auction House’s interior boasts an interesting hodgepodge of sports memorabilia and antique furniture, making it ideal for either watching the big game or perhaps even a first date. Indeed, where else can you catch the Rangers and the Bruins under the watchful eye of a nude portrait? The Auction’s back area, a living room complete with a comfortable sofa and fireplace, is a popular after-work meeting place during the week.
