Food and drink
The menu here emphasizes American classics, with a great burger, a wonderful turkey sandwich and a good daily selection of oysters. Don’t miss the Wilkinson’s, a kind of decadent donut, and the joint’s excellent specialty cocktails.
The owners have successfully created a old world feel with a great zinc-paneled bar and wood banquettes.
Brooklyn hipsters cheerfully lead you through the short food menu and the handpicked cocktail list.
On the fringes of Brooklyn’s hip Cobble Hill, not far from Brooklyn Heights (walk over the gorgeous Brooklyn Bridge and then reward yourself with a meal here).
The prices are quite expensive despite the down-home atmosphere - like US$12 for a turkey sandwich and $13 for a burger - but they are good enough to make them worth being over 10 bucks.
Tables to book
I love the tables in the small back room.
