Yes, the answer is yes.
Yes to the Mr. Hyde (rye whiskey, Alder smoke, cherry, Mexican cola, beef jerky), the superb Scallop Ceviche, the Tete De Cochon with lentils and pickled vegetables. Yes, yes, yes.
Yes to the Squid with olives, capers, and spicy tomato.
Yes to the American Trilogy, with Rittenhouse rye, Lairds 100 Applejack, orange bitters, Demerara and one crystal clear iceburg of an icecube.
Yes to the Pork Belly.
Yes to the perfect spot for lovers of small plates and the art of cocktailing. To wide marble bar-tops that hold lots of plates and glasses, your elbows, your phone. Yes to the Brooklynites that check Eater’s Heatmaps as frequently as I do, and to neighborhood folks that just got real lucky.
Is this the new go-to spot pre-anything at Barclays?
Yes, Sweet Polly. Yes.
