Village Voice's Description

This Franco-Scottish restaurant caters to the cool lads and lassies who drink more than they eat-but they're no worse off for it, since the food unfortunately bores more than it delights. Best to get a whiskey at the lively bar or go for one of the excellent dessert options. Try the cranberry upside-down cake-a happy mash-up of autumnal tea-time pastry and sweet stickiness of summer camp-or the peanut butter sandwiches, perched atop a cascade of caramelized bananas. Despite the hubbub and glitz (and very friendly service), though, the staying power of this establishment remains questionable, given the fickle nature of trend-seekers. But hey, the real-life Mary Queen of Scots got the ax early on, too.

Tips from foursquare

  • AskMen on 11/04/10

    A Scottish brasserie, identifable as such by a menu of boudin noir, house-smoked Scottish salmon & a signiture MQS burger made with Piedmontese beef & cheddar.

  • Gilt City on 02/14/11

    The all-star team behind Mary? Scotsman Brian McGrory (of Highlands), has teamed with chef Will Hickox (of Blue Hill) and sous chef Frederico Ribeiro (of El Bulli) are not to be rivaled.

  • Metromix on 11/09/10

    Old Allen & Delancey space churns out Franco-Scottish dishes, French wine and a comprehensive Scotch list. All-star crew of mixologists running the drinks list. Try one or four.

  • Chris F. on 11/05/10

    My favorite drink is the French 75 - gin, lemon juice, and a splash of champagne. Thank you my Queen!

    Ask for Rod the bartender, ask for a Scotch Old Fashioned
