For their second south Williamsburg spot, the team behind Post Office went with a similarly hard-to-Google name, OTB. Nods to the Off-Track Betting franchise include betting forms turned into menus, horseshoe wallpaper in the bathrooms, and a table with bleacher-style seating. Reminding you that you’re not about to wager on the ponies, ornate chandeliers dimly light black booths, with large black-and-white photos hanging from the textured, green papered walls. The menu’s French and American dishes have one thing in common: They are chef Sam Glinn’s (Momofuku Ssam Bar, Brooklyn Star) favorite things to eat. The scallop ceviche is tasty, though overpowered by the mixed-in guacamole. Grilled asparagus is topped with a fried egg and croutons. Spicy wings are like fried chicken on the bone, nicely breaded and served with a blue-cheese-and-ranch mix and fennel sticks. The stuffed lobster roll has a generous meat-to-bun ratio and is bursting with flavor, as is the coq au vina stew of wine-braised chicken, bacon lardons, and vegetables. Behind the extended bar, Alla Lapushchik (Death & Company, Mayahuel) serves classic cocktails alongside their modern twists. The Turkey Jerky adds brandy and cinnamon sugar to the whiskey and bitters of an old-fashioned, while the Green Bee is a classic bee’s knees (gin, lemon, honey) with cucumber and mint.
