Plaster and dark wood walls stretch high to the sky at Gordon Bennett, dampening music and conversation. A slate floor and soft candlelight create a subterranean ambience akin to a monk’s cheese cave. Softly illuminated in the room’s center is a system of taps that spans half the length of the large bar; the spouts dispense liquid communion in the form of flowery Czech Staropramen and Belhaven Scottish Stout that’s milkshake-thick. The owners (one of whom runs the nearby Iona) have scrubbed the address clean of Vinas, a chic Latin American restaurant that recently closed, replacing ceviche on the menu with pub grub like cottage pie, fish and chips, and Cheddar toasties (Irish grilled-cheese sandwiches).


Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays extends from 11am to 5pm and includes most of the standard dishes, plus oddballs like beef stew and shakshuka, and $3 mimosas.
