Nicholas Nostadt (Berry Park) offers tweaked picnic classics at this 70-seat East Village eatery, decorated with whitewashed tin and exposed brick. Choose from dishes like hard-cider–spiked mussels with apricot nectar, pulled pork sandwiches slathered in root beer BBQ sauce and a variation on Midwestern puppy chow (chocolate-coated Chex cereal). At the zinc bar, Counter Culture coffees, Finger Lakes wines and all-American beers (Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale, Victory Festbier) are on offer for Mom and Dad.
