Fodor's Review

Moody tin-tile ceilings, filament lights, bluegrass tunes, a popcorn machine, and only 27 raised counter stools at this pewter-topped bar and Lower East Side–inspired diner makes for one of the coolest spots in town. Naturally, there's no phone, no reservations, and minimal signage, but that only adds to the speakeasy vibe. Once seated after a wait, strike up a conversation with the friendly car mechanic lookalike bar staff and settle in with a whisky-based Brooklyn Manhattan cocktail. Then dive into famed truffled egg toast before moving on to deep-fried grits, softshell crab, or three-bites-and-they're-gone Yankee sliders—try salt beef with dill or cornflake chicken with honey mustard slaw. Don't overlook the glorious mac 'n' cheese or steak and eggs. For dessert, try a PB&J sandwich, and chase it down with a slug of Elijah Craig bourbon or home-brew black treacle rum.
