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

A raw-fish rage is sweeping Manhattan, with so many joints offering menus of the stuff that we’ve started to wonder if it’s a new Health Department requirement. The trend moves to the far reaches of Carroll Gardens, thanks to Ravi DeRossi (Death & Company, Proletariat), who banded with Interpol guitarist Daniel Kessler to open this Brooklyn drinkery. The nightlife guru has tapped Top Chef alum Andrew D’Ambrosi (Le Cirque) to helm the menu of crudos, carpaccios and tartares at the rustic, wood-laden spot (which takes the place of DeRossi’s shuttered Bourgeois Pig Brooklyn). On offer are tuna pica with black currant and toasted almond; local fluke with smoked ramps, green tomato and white soy; and hamachi with red onion, avocado and yuzu kosho (chili-pepper-and-yuzu paste). At the 12-seat butcher-block bar overlooking the open kitchen, bartenders serve quaffs to complement the fish: The Day-Boat Cobbler (sherry, white rum, cane syrup, orange juice and salt) is best enjoyed with the hamachi, while the Agave Orchard (tequila, apple brandy, Cocchi Americano and celery bitters) pairs well with fluke. Aqua banquettes and Mediterranean-inspired blue-and-white tiled tables reinforce the seafood scheme.
