Smart Contemporary American comfort food is the hallmark of this funky Clinton St. restaurant row mainstay where a few creative offerings (e.g. roasted cauliflower and chanterelles with red grapes, rosemary, poached egg, and aioli) are interspersed with a menu of largely crowd-pleasing stalwarts kicked up a notch, elevated by often locally sourced ingredients (e.g. St. Louis-style heritage pork ribs; a roasted chicken from an upstate farm). Brunch is popular, the brisket (either as an entrée or sandwich) is not to be missed, and there's a weekly changing three-course $25 prix fixe on Sunday nights that's a steal.
