The lowdown

Saul Bolton and Ben Daitz’s restaurant delivers classed-up bar food, including duck wings finished with sweet chile and goat cheese, and tempura veggies dunked in garlic soy sauce. Bolton’s brand of Brooklyn Bangers sausages, notably the cheddar bratwurst and the snappy hot dog made from brisket, are standouts. Brunch is also a solid bet, including the spicy grits and corned-beef hash.
