About
Wogies

Wogies Bar and Grill is named after my dad, William Styer Hoffman. No one but my mom affectionately known as Krazy Kate is sure why he was nicknamed Wogie (Whoa-gee) and she isn’t telling. Growing up outside Philadelphia, PA, my dad loved a great cheesesteak. and while he lived his entire life near Philly, his favorite city was New York. Wogies is my way of remembering my dad by making a great Philly Cheesesteak in the greatest city in the world.

I guess you can also say that with Wogies, I’m bringing a family tradition to the West Village. My family has been making people’s stomachs happy for years. Wogie owned a couple pizza shops and my brother still runs his restaurant and hotel in PA. Learning from them, along with running a few bars here in New York, has taught me a lot about how to create a comfortable place where people can enjoy good food and drinks with friends. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy and come back often.
