Chef Liza Queen of retired Greenpoint cult favorite Queen's Hideaway is behind the New American Potlikker, a handsome Southside spot with delicate décor, a charming wooden beer bar, and an open kitchen. There are healthy options like seasonally-driven salads including the mixed lettuce with green beans, cucumbers and radish, but it’s hard to pass up the creamy chicken liver mouse or the fluffy Dutch pancake topped with fried oysters, hot pepper jelly, and bacon. The sandwich selection forces you to make tough decisions: Both the BLT, which is overflowing with heirloom tomatoes (in the summer months) and the crispy duck confit banh mi on ciabatta are good picks. Other standouts are the juicy strip-loin steak and the tortilla soup, loaded with shrimp and fresh fried tortilla strips. Potlikker's impressive beer selection, wine options, and the "please give me the recipe" tart cherry sangria round out a solid meal. Potlikker’s also a popular spot for brunch, offering hearty dishes liked corned beef hash with poached eggs and French toast, and a Dutch pancake with home-fried potatoes, bacon, and cheese.
