The lowdown

At previous positions at Employees Only and Dogmatic Dogs, Jeremy Spector trafficked in cocktail cuisine and fancy fast food. At his East Village restaurant, he focuses on sharable portions of eclectic comfort food — served, in some cases, in teacups inherited from the previous occupant, the neo-Korean Persimmon. The menu runs the gamut from spaghetti and meatballs to pork-confit poutine. There’s shakshuka at brunch, a fried-chicken sandwich at lunch, and Sebastian’s Steakhouse burger — a dry-aged deckle-larded six-ounce dynamo served with caramelized onions and two Kraft singles on a squishy bun — at every meal.
