New York City-Greenpoint
May 11, 2018
This smart new bar and restaurant in Greenpoint, occupying the corner that was once home to The Greenpoint Coffee Shop, is a handsome spot which is unsurprising given it’s the work of Evan and Oliver Haslegrave, the brothers behind the Home design company. The interior is decked out in repurposed panels of cherry coloured wood and the room is dominated by a large horseshoe-shaped bar. There are lots of white tiles and wooden tables and elegant art deco touches to the design. The room is nice and light too, the sun streaming in. A short list of cocktails includes classics like the Manhattan and the Margarita alongside a Black Velvet a rich mix of stout and fizz and the amusingly named, Phil Collins, a tart blend of gin, lillet, prosecco, Aperol and lemon juice. There’s a compact wine list and a small range of beers available too. The food menu is reasonably priced considering the quality. Try the foie gras breakfast sandwich (if you’re down with that sort of thing); the radish salad with goat’s cheese and faro is a lighter but no less delicious option. Be sure to save room for cake this place does good cake.
