Not Accepted


This exceedingly low-profile restaurant materialized at the end of a nondescript Lower East Side alley unknown to even the most intrepid hipster. Persevere, and you'll discover a taxidermist's dream of a dining room, specialty cocktails, and a homespun American menu tinged with the occasional Anglo accent, like devils on horseback. If you don't feel like battling for a Marquee Moon (tequila, yellow chartreuse, tarragon, lime) during the raucous evening hours, order one (or two) on a peaceful Sunday afternoon, along with a plate of barbecue pork belly, collard greens, and grilled brook trout.


Reservations are accepted for parties of 6 or more.
