Comfort food and Sunday suppers in a quiet corner of Brooklyn.

687 Sixth Ave., Brooklyn, NY, 11215



Known For

The lowdown

On the surface, there’s not a lot to set this snug Greenwood Heights standby apart in Brooklyn’s prevailing culinary climate: It’s got the fervent locavore streak permeating a small, often-changing menu; the reliance on local farms for fresh produce; the short but thoughtful beer and wine lists; the craft cocktails. But the locals love it for its homey vibe and better-than-expected takes on simple-sounding standards like a first-rate, perfectly proportioned grass-fed Cheddar burger, steak and potatoes, chicken and gravy. There are equally filling vegetarian options, too. The defining feature of Lot 2, though (other than the truly stellar duck-fat potatoes that accompany the burger), is the $35 three-course Sunday supper, a family-style neighborhood tradition.
