Restaurants, Contemporary European East Village

Time Out says

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

Northern European fare is underexposed in NYC, but this trailblazing bistro and bar makes a strong case for its appeal. The minimalist interior sets the scene for cutting-edge cocktails from barkeep Katie Stipe, who uses unusual ingredients (beer, jenever) in tipples like the beautifully balanced Turf War (aquavit, Lillet, maraschino juice, orange bitters, absinthe). Chef Phillip Kirschen-Clark (wd~50) offers great small bites to match—bright seasonal pickles, crisp bitterballen (meaty croquettes) and crunchy sweetbread nuggets served with a lush Concord grape dipping sauce. Even without a pastry chef, the sweet treats (like warm caramel wafers) deliver an inspired finale.
