Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

At first glance, this Park Slope gastropub looks more pubby (the gleaming dark-wood bar takes up at least half the space) than gastro. Look beyond what’s offered on tap (it may be tough—the well-edited selection includes favorites like Blue Point Winter Ale), and you’ll find delicious, elevated pub fare. Every meal at this comfortingly masculine spot—with rough-hewn communal tables for dining, and a warm glow thanks to exposed filament bulbs—starts with a small bowl of piping-hot fried chickpeas, an addictive snack that’s a fine complement to your pint. In fact, lots of dishes are fried: Lightly-battered, meaty cuttlefish comes with a chorizo-mayo dip; fish-and-chips are upgraded with flaky skate wing and fingerling potatoes. We also enjoyed yet another unabashedly hearty dish: a starter of meltingly tender braised pork cheeks. The only misstep was the beet ravioli, which were just about drowning in cream sauce. Desserts, however, were surprisingly excellent, especially a moist, cakey puck of toffee-sauce-doused pudding (pictured), spiked with—what else?— Guinness.
