Williamsburg
Tucked beneath Rye restaurant—the acronym stands for "Bar Below Rye"—this 45-seat subterranean saloon is kitted out with wooden planks to resemble a ship's hull, an allusion to the longshoremen in chef-owner Cal Elliott's family. Dram owner Tom Chadwick runs the beverage program, with cocktails like the Diablero (tequila, Cocchi Americano, lemon, raspberries and Tiki bitters) and the Coco Rosie, a piña colada–meets–dark-and-stormy. The beer list features brews on tap (Bitburger, Flying Dog), and vintage bottles—salvaged from when the space was a 1920s members-only club—line the back bar. To accompany the booze, Elliott dispatches casual plates: Scotch eggs, crab croquettes and smoked-pork-belly sandwiches.
