Village Voice's Description
Occupying the former Raymund's space, and retaining something of its Tudor cottage feel, Allswell is the project of Spotted Pig alum Nate Smith. Sawing away at the local and sustainable violin, he explores the frontiers of gastropubbery, with wildly inventive dishes, such as whole pig ear fried and presented with a salad as an antidote to all that porcine luxuriance; and lamb's tongue on toast with kumquat marmalade. But don't worry, these things are more normal tasting than you might expect, and the short menu changes daily, so if you go on one occasion and don't like it, it will be completely different the next. The desserts, via Smith's wife Sophie Kamin, are as wonderful as the savory fare.
Tips from foursquare
Get close to your date in the corner banquette at Spotted Pig alum Nate Smith’s tavern. Sample dishes from the roating menu, and pair them with a craft beer or market-driven cocktail.
A popular brunch item is the two-eggs any style, made with farm-fresh eggs, house-made marmalade and locally sourced bacon or sausage
Hannah Goldfield: The dishes were tasty enough, "and felt appropriate in the restaurant’s shire-inn-style setting". More: http://nyr.kr/SAYFeV
