Schapiro's Eatery & Cocktail Bar

Lower East Side
At this 74-seat comfort-food joint, Eyal Tov and chef David Shemesh (both of Antibes Bistro) pay tribute to Lower East Side history. Artifacts from shuttered local businesses—wrought-iron light fixtures, antique printing-press blocks—fill the restaurant, named after Manhattan’s last kosher winery. Shemesh reimagines Jewish staples, updating gefilte fish with a beet-horseradish sauce and veal schnitzel with a sesame crust. The menu also features reworked American classics: bourbon-glazed meat loaf, porcini-crusted scallops and bone marrow with an escargot-and-bacon ragù. A literary theme crops up in cocktails crafted by bartender Natasha David (Maison Premiere, Prime Meats): Constant Reader is made with gin, rose, lemon juice and honey, while the Invisible Man is a mix of bourbon and apple brandy with cardamom syrup. The beer and wine lists skew American, highlighting local brews like He'Brew Genesis Dry Hopped Session Ale (part of Shmaltz Brewing Company's kosher line) and producers such as Long Island’s Pindar Vineyards.
