Located in the middle of Greenpoint’s nightlife row is this industrial-chic sibling (and neighbor) to pioneering bar Coco 66. The eclectic menu teeters between Latin American (yucca-encrusted scallops perched atop an herbaceous salsa verde) and gut-busting gastrogrub fare, like an oversalted sirloin steak with crispy fries. Although it still has some kinks to work out— a glass of wine took more than a half hour to appear—the eatery righted its wrongs with free booze and sincere apologies. That, more than any stylish design, is truly sexy.
