On April 6, the owners of Anella, along with bartenders from Bar Matchless are opening Saint Vitus, a 2,500-square-foot rock & roll bar in the outer reaches of Greenpoint. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors separate the back music venue from a candlelit front bar, which is decorated with a 30-foot-long stained mahogany bar, glossy onyx tiles and a coffered ceiling. Eight taps dispense local brews (Sixpoint, Kelso, Captain Lawrence), and a cocktail menu highlights libations both classic (Manhattans, old-fashioneds) and creative (the Saint Vitus combines whiskey, honey, lemon and Nero d'Avola). But freewheeling drinkers can go straight for cans of Bud and PBR or the house pickleback, punched up with Brooklyn Brine Co.'s Whiskey Sour juice. To eat, find steamed buns stuffed with a range of unconventional fillings, like braised short rib with carrot puree and pickled cabbage, eggplant with pecorino, and Old Chatham Camembert with quince paste and marcona almonds. 1120 Manhattan Ave between Box and Clay Sts, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (no phone yet)
