Profile

This relaxed gastropub serves up no-nonsense drinks and killer comfort food to a young Williamsburg crowd. The high-ceiling'ed space is dominated by a salvaged mahogany and oak bar, built in the Bronx in the 1870s, that stretches the length of the restaurant. This behemoth is offset with modest gray-green walls, tiled floors, and lazy ceiling fans spinning overhead. The food here likes to act less precocious than it really is, though. Greasy-looking pierogies are light like a puff pastry, filled with a cloud of Yukon golds and white cheddar. Served with sour cream and habanero jam, these things are the Platonic ideal of bar food. Follow those with the excellent cheeseburger: a ground short rib and brisket blend with aged cheddar, house pickles, and caper mayo on a sesame-studded bun. The melting, tender pork spare ribs, which are dressed in blackberry preserves and sherry vinegar, are a bit sweet, but they’re saved by a garnish of plain shredded cabbage and pickled red-chard stems, which cut the sweetness. Wash it all down with a pint of craft beer or a stiff cocktail. It’s not that the food can’t hold its own—it’s just that this kind of cooking makes alcohol taste so damn good.

Note

Bar stays open until 2 a.m. daily.
