The lowdown

This park-facing corner spot comes in handy for an eggy brunch or an oysters-and-martini night out. The sister restaurant to Walter Foods in Williamsburg, Walter’s has many looks: During the day, the expansive windows let in a wealth of natural light; in the evening, tungsten bulbs bathe the wraparound bar and leather banquettes in a cozy glow. Standout entrées include the pork chops with jalapeño grits and the seven-ounce burger on brioche. A solid cocktail menu rounds out the mix; try the Hemingway Daiquiri or the Pepino, made with Mezcal and muddled cucumber.
