Fodor's Review

Chef Wylie Dufresne, whoran the show for years at acclaimed avant-garde eatery wd-50, until it shuttered at the end of 2014, is the wizard in the kitchen at this modern gastropub. As Dufresne has demonstrated in the past, looks can be deceiving, and there is more than meets the eye(and the mouth) here. The rye pasta with toasted caraway and pastrami is an ingenious re-imagining of the classic New York deli sandwich. The crackers in the New England clam chowder are made from puréed oysters and pack a flavorful punch. Pair anything with the carefully selected craft beers or innovative cocktails. Sunday brunch is also fun: try the bacon, egg, and cheese gyoza or the pastrami hash, with one of the unique bloody marys.
