The People’s Republic of Brooklyn combines a casual neighborhood vibe with an inborn Cajun influence, offering comfort foods drawn from south of the Mason-Dixon line. The bar has ample floor space and an enviable backyard garden; its roomy dining nook doubles as a corner stage for D.J.'s and live bands from the jazzy end of the pop spectrum. In additional to a traditional midnight burgers-and-wings menu, the kitchen offers brunch specials and unlimited mimosas to complement syrupy pancakes and southern staples like fried catfish, grits, and chicken and waffles.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
