Just a few weeks after closing East Williamsburg’s Gwynnett St., Carl McCoy relaunched the restaurant as Lachlan Gastropub, backed by an Allswell vet who’s turning out a seasonal, modern American menu with a touch of Mediterranean. The restaurant is nearly identical to the former, inside and out: exposed brick, low lighting, hardwood floors, a smattering of blue paisley, and some colorful pieces from local artists make it feel cozy. Indie-folk and Otis Redding fit the final piece of the Brooklyn puzzle. Start with beer—half the draft lineup of eight is devoted to Brooklyn Brewery—and snack on the potato chips fried in-house and dusted with Old Bay and smoked paprika. Be sure to order the mini loaf of whiskey bread, which is made like an Irish soda-bread and resembles cornbread in sweetness and crumb, as well as the creamy, wonderfully salty chicken-liver mousse. Move onto crisp, tiny sweetbreads that come plated in a pool of mustard sauce touched with mint, or expertly cooked charred octopus (though, unfortunately, it can get buried in an overpowering mix of beets, clementines, and olives). Mains, like a beautiful dish of pappardelle tangled with guanciale and leeks, or the silky-tender braised short ribs, are a bit undersalted and dainty, so maybe devote your funds to cocktails like the Road to Nowhere (rye, Luxardo bitter, amaro). Coffee from Toby’s Estate can round out the meal nicely, especially when paired with one of the two classic desserts on offer: crème brûlée and flourless chocolate cake made with homemade crème fraiche.

Happy Hour: $1 oysters, $8 cocktails, and $4 snacks are available at the bar from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday and Tuesday-Friday.
