Thank you for including TUFFET! That's my favorite place to hole up.
Argh, will fix. Thanks a bunch, sorry, etc.
FYI, the pic you used for Black Rabbit is actually Metropolitan, and the pic for Metropolitan... not sure, but perhaps they got switched?
it also smells like cigarette smoke and fried food and the wine is so overpriced you wonder if you're paying for someone's NYU education...
Great write-up, Kara! It would be so fun to run into you here. It is such a great place. I might be totally out of it but never noticed food. The owners are just dolls and it's always a diverse super laid-back crowd.
Rucola is amazing. A fantastic date spot for a winter night, the ambiance is homey and romantic, and the food is superb.
The Brooklyn Star link goes to Brooklyn Best Pizza. Oops.
Bravo. A writer with daring and insight. To hell with the food, this article almost makes me want to start drinking again.
Braised short ribs benedict at Le Comptoir are great
that line about "pristine tap lines" is no joke. Best tasting beer I've ever had in my life.
This place is crazy good, went there the other day for first time and will definitely return. Awesome sandwiches and low prices A real added bonus to the neighborhood!
Kelly -- that's how our mimosas always come! A little surprise in our PRB mimosas for you. Best, Natasha
I went to Sotto Voce this weekend and the brunch was actually $16.95. The salmon plate was delish and the other entree's looked fabulous as well. Though the service was less than friendly as my guests and I lingered for a while after paying our bill, I would go back.
I caught the bartender at PRB putting vodka in the mimosas once!
Why would the lead in to this be that the new artisanal whiskey and bourbon are not as good as Scotch? Not only is that just not true, it's unnecessarily inflammatory, an outdated viewpoint, and taking away from the real reasons Noorman's Kill is a legitimate addition to our saturating neighborhood. Their Scotch list is great (go for the Bowmore 15 "the darkest" next time; the added time in the sherry butts is more interesting than the 12 year), but so is the entire list.
1) What they're doing right is their ENTIRE inspired list (including the craft stuff in the U.S.).
2)They're pouring tastes at a great price. Instead of paying $12 for four ounces of one spirit they're pouring maybe two ounces and charging $8. It's a win-win, you can be out of there for a lower tab and/or move on to a different dram, sooner.
3)They also do not take advantage of the average customer's knowledge by jacking up the price of something obscure.
I know deadlines can be tough, and a writer is forced to come up with SOMETHING to catch the reader, but this comparison is drivel. Encourage people to explore. Some Scotch out there is gimmicky and sucks, too.
love this place. but they do screw up everyone's bill pretty consistently.
This place sucks. Sorry.They serve fucking tofu?. They have a dj that plays house and techno? They have a poetry night? what the hell is this? when i go out i want to drink- not look at a goddamn menu and eat fucking crab (maybe get crabs but thats a whole other issue) This place isnt trying to be hip? whatever that means- what the fuck happened to bars and drinking and nyc? jesus fucking christ. This place serves sangria? Who the fuck drinks that? What happened to going out and just getting drunk and hanging out? I dont need fucking techno- I need beer and whiskey and not to be fucking bothered by some stupid dj. The only saving grace is idiots who read and write these reviews wouldnt go to any bar that I would enjoy, Thank fucking god.
Did I hear that they had a DJ night with Gibby from the Butthole Surfers? How amazing is that?!
