“Beers, food, women, and jeeps” is the motto of the Filipino gastropub from the Maharlika team, and it extends to its design, too: Tabletops are colorfully numbered and embellished, scantily clad pinup girls decorate the walls, and Asian beers are meant to accompany shareable plates of “barrio fiesta” fare. Chef-partner Miguel Trinidad collaborates with Daniel “Chino” Parilla, Minetta Tavern sous-chef and a consultant here, on dishes like fried-fishbone salad, chicken-fat wings, and a longga burger made with skinless sausage, Kewpie-Maggi aïoli, and banana ketchup. Jeepney is named for the garish and cramped public taxis built from World War II–era Army jeeps.
