Taking over a Graham Avenue corner, Matthew Maddy (Weather Up) slings elevated bar bites, craft beers and cocktails at this white-tiled Bushwick gastropub. Teaming with two fellow Brooklynites (Flatbush Farm's Damon Gorton and James Freeman from Clem's), Maddy enlists chef Christopher Daly to run the kitchen, serving shrimp cocktail alongside tomato-orange sangrita; tempura-fried pickles with a balsamic reduction; and a burger topped with maple-glazed pineapple and an egg. Sidle up to the horseshoe-shaped wooden bar for draft brews (Breckenridge Agave Wheat, Radeberger Pilsner), wallet-friendly cans (Red Stripe, Tecate) and cocktails, many made with Jamaican grapefruit soda Ting, including the gin-based Crooklyn.
