Village Voice's Description

Peter Hoffman's relaxed American bistro places an emphasis on vegetables and other farmstead products, preferentially acquired as near to the city as possible. There's a cream-based oyster chowder substituting sunchokes for potatoes, a winter-squash tempura with a smoked paprika dip, and a farm-raised trout from the Catskills that fries up all herby and crisp. Though reviled by some reviewers, we found the grass-fed burger a paragon of its type, though the French fries are made with potatoes that are a little too sweet.

Tips from foursquare

    On June 15, $42 scores spiced blue crabs, sides like buttery taters, beans, corn, & seasonal fruit cobbler. Beer isn’t included but towels are, so grab one & get in there before tickets sell out.

    Go to Back Forty and drink the Ginger Bourbon Back Forty Cocktails and order a grass-fed burger.

  • Serious Eats on 03/04/13

    Entrees can be pricey and miss the mark, but small plates here are always a hit, and half price drinks during happy hour make it an ideal spot for dinner at the bar.

    Better drink spot than dinner spot. Be prepared to pay $$$ for an average meal

    The house drink - the Back Forty - is awesome.
