Village Voice's Description

This dark corner bar specializes in retro cocktails at retro prices, and, believe us, they're strong. What comes as a bigger surprise is the bar food that issues from the kitchen via Pies 'N' Thighs veteran Stephen Tanner. Sure he's got a great fried chicken sandwich, but even more impressive is the compact hamburger, a simple assemblage of great ground meat, raw onions, mayo, lettuce, and tomato, and little else. There are often tacos and a green-chile pozole - though note that the menu continues to evolve. Then there are a few farmers' market plates that include such things as ramps, asparagus, baby lettuces, and organic eggs, depending on season. This is bar food? You wonder as you eat them.

    Black Betty's been reborn into this kitschy, nautical spot with four-star bar food. Per the Underground Gourmet, try the fried chicken - "among the best in town" - and the "adult cheese" sandwich.

    This nautical dive has some of the city’s best bar food, including a knockout cheeseburger with mayo and sliced half-sour pickles tucked beneath an amply salted LaFrieda patty.

    Taste the best in Southern-friend Brooklyn here with the chicken and biscuits or pork special of the day. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!

    The weirdest restaurant in the city, order a boat drink and some fried chicken from the bar. Find a place to sit and wait (for a while) and work on your sugar hangover.

    A burger for $6 or three pieces of fried chicken w/ biscuit for $10? Lone star beer for $3? Bliss.
