After nearly a quarter century spent manning the kitchen at the Waldorf-Astoria, chef John Doherty’s going solo with this farmcentric dining room, inspired by the barn houses of Long Island’s East End. The old SD26 space has been retooled with barn-rafter ceilings, weathered-wood café tables and hand-stitched linen banquettes. Doherty’s menu is similarly rustic, with ingredients sourced from area farmers, ranchers and fishermen: Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Amish chicken with a panzanella salad, bone marrow accompanied by lemon-herb crumb and Manila clams from Jersey’s Sea Dog Boat, and a curried Orange County–bred cauliflower steak with toasted pine nuts and pickled raisins.

One of the juiciest burgers I'm chomped down on. They also accompany it with parmesan fries. It went well with a nice beer for a satisfying lunch. The bartenders were a little bit inattentive and slower to get my order and forgot to put my order in so it took a long time for my food. Luckily I wasn't in much of a hurry so it didn't matter as much but had I been in another state, that would have probably annoyed me a little more.

If you're looking for a great spot for a large group, this is the place to go. The food is average, but the cocktails are great. There's live music and the staff is super friendly.

Absolutely loved this spot. Live music playing, great cocktails, and delicious food. Awesome spot for groups or smaller parties. Loved the open kitchen area in the back. Such a cool decor too. They also have private dining rooms off to the side of the main dining area. There's also a big upstairs area that you can rent out for parties up to 150. Will definitely go back next time I'm around the Flatiron area
