The Greenpoint dining scene is flush with Polish stalwarts, old-world bakeries and indie bars, but the ’hood has had little in the way of stylish American restaurants. That will soon change on April 29th, when Brooklyn Star vets Nick Padilla and Waine Longwell roll out this stunning 60-seat eatery—boasting a gleaming U-shaped concrete bar, purple heart-wood paneling and black ceiling fans—designed by indie firm hOmE (Paulie Gee’s, Donna). The duo will dispatch bistro starters (raw oysters, charcuterie), American classics (an In-and-Out-inspired burger) and creative plates (a foie gras breakfast sandwich, a pork sausage on a roll with piperade). Sip bottled beers (Narragansett, Anchor Steam, Dupont Redor Pils), biodynamic wines, or tweaked classic cocktails, like a Manhattan made with house-made vermouth and a whiskey sour spiced up with Velvet Falernum. 195 Franklin St at Green St, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (347-227-7296)
