The lowdown

Come by Danny Meyer’s Hudson Yards–adjacent spot early in the day to get pan-southern-influenced menu items like po’boys. At night, come for happy-hour onion dip, or try the Texas red chili, which is appropriately beanless and incredibly earthy and smoky — all of which pair incredibly well with the bar’s many excellent cocktails.
