Tracy Westmoreland’s the Manhattans, an attempt to rebirth the notoriously dingy Hell’s Kitchen dive Siberia in Brooklyn, lasted less than six months on Washington Avenue. In its place came Prospect Pond, a marked effort to do away with the Manhattans’ standoffishness; instead of newspapers blotting out the window, there are standard neon beer signs beckoning entrance into the narrow space. Everything else has been cleaned up as well, in an attempt to lure the neighborhood crowd that never flocked to Westmoreland’s joint; low-slung two-person wooden tables line the wall opposite the long bar, with framed local artwork (part of rotating residencies) providing the décor. The cheap beer policies are in place, with PBR on tap offering a nice counter to the unwieldy craft-beer list at Washington Commons, just down the street. It's the kind of place where you’re likely to hear “shots on the house” almost as often as “come back soon.”
