The Bar Food's No Slouch at Post Office, a Whiskey Bar in Williamsburg

Paul Yee Post a comment

The food at Post Office, a whiskey bar in Williamsburg that makes a mean cocktail, is comfort-food simple but surprisingly good, and the bar's crowd is much more civilized than many of its neighbors. More

The Vegetarian Option: Earl's Beer & Cheese

The Vegetarian Option Howard Walfish 2 comments

Tucked into a narrow stretch of Park Avenue, where the Metro North Railroad disappears underground, is where you'll find Earl's Beer & Cheese. The menu at Earl's changes seasonally, and currently features dishes like Mac and Cheese, Asian Gnocchi topped with cheese fries, and Earl's Eggo, a gourmet waffle with cheddar. You can wash down your food with any of the craft brews on tap or in cans; Earl's Beer & Cheese takes its name seriously. But the Mac & Cheese features shredded chicken, the gnocchi has ground beef, and that waffle is topped with foie gras and bacon along with those cheese fries. What is there for vegetarians? More

Bar Eats: Breukelen Bier Merchants

Bar Eats Nancy Huang 1 comment

Part beer bar, part beer store, the newly opened Breukelen Bier Merchants puts the art of the craft brew on center stage here in Williamsburg. It's easy to lose track of time in a tasting room that sells more than 500 different bottles and 16 craft beers on tap, so make sure to temper all that beer drinking with some bar bites from their menu.

Video: Bar Snacks Get a Makeover in Brooklyn

Erin Zimmer 6 comments

"Packaged of unshelled sunflower seeds. C'mon bars, gross. And boring!" says Agatha Kulaga of Ovenly, a creative kitchen in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. Agatha and her friend Erin Patinkin started the company about a year ago after being fed up with the predictable freebie bar munchies. They've crafted their own playful takes, like "the ultimate beer nut," a medley of peanuts, Worcestershire sauce, Old Bay, and bacon fat. They're really into bacon fat. More

Ardesia: A Neighborhood Wine Bar Worth Seeking Out

Ed Levine 16 comments

What I found at Ardesia was mostly so delicious that I'm kicking myself for not making my way there earlier. A wine bar with distinctive, carefully crafted food is a fairly rare specimen in this town, and that's just what Ardesia is. If I could walk to it from my apartment, I would be there once or twice a week. It's an adult place that's contemporary without seeming suffocatingly hip. More

The Vegetarian Option: Kebeer

The Vegetarian Option Howard Walfish 2 comments

When it comes to vegetarian food, there are two things that Russian cooks do better than most: mushrooms and pickles. Witness Kebeer, a bar in Brighton Beach with a full menu that features plenty of vegetarian options. More

Sugar Rush: Luminous Kitchens Bum Bars

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

There are three flavors: Apricot, Peanut Butter, and Hemp. I'm not a big fan of the borderline medicinal hemp, which clashes with the chocolate chips, but I certainly have turned to the apricot and peanut butter bars for a quick breakfast or snack between meetings. More

Drink At Maialino's Nebbiolo Bar Before It's Gone

Maggie Hoffman 4 comments

You can try the wines by the glass (and even better, the half-glass) and it's a remarkable learning experience to taste your way through a few of them (or the whole bar, if you've got all night.) You should do it now, though, because Maialino's Nebbiolo bar is on its way out. More
