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 Not only is that just not true, it's unnecessarily inflammatory, an outdated viewpoint, and taking away from the real reasons Noorman's Kill is a legitimate addition to our saturating neighborhood.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?!
I go to school in Iowa and have friends from Dubuque. I can almost guarantee that Dubuque, IA doesn't offer anything half as delicious as that sounds!
Or you could just go to Toby's which is across the street and way better. The tartufata is incredible and the ambiance is fabulous. Brick oven pizza and amazing ingredients in a bar that makes you feel at home immediately. Can't be beat.
how are any of these activities actually free? that's what i'd like to know.
"Maybe you should try looking at nearby street signs before you make assumptions about its name."
Dude, did you read the review?
"The Emerson's attempt to serve that audience falls flat. Its literary leanings feel more arbitrary and convenient (one of its cross streets is Emerson Place) than heartfelt."
It isn't named after the writer and it doesn't cater to writers, instead it caters to the neighborhood's diverse crowd, which you would know if it wasn't your first time in the area. Sorry pasty folks, you'll have to pretend you're hard enough to drink maker's mark elsewhere.

I was there on Tuesday night; I basically agree with the article; there is still very much a sense of an older nighborhood bar feel when you walk in, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Only one television, which also is much more indicative of older neighborhood bars. However the bar sits on an eight block "strip" that contains about five other bars, unlike the original Freddys which was pretty isolated. These bars cater more to the upscale newcomers---it will be interesting to see how they relate to Freddys.
