Allen & Delancey exhibits many characteristics common to the neighborhood, with one twist. The rooms are windowless and dimly lit, yes, and there is an elegant little bar up front, where you can sit nursing your cinnamon pisco sour by candlelight. A thick curtain of red velvet separates the two little dining rooms, which are appointed with old oil paintings and shelves of books. But the menu is now in the hands of up-and-coming chef and pork impresario Ryan Skeen who says his style here is “a little more intimate, a little more refined” than what he was doing at Irving Mill.
