Foursquare Tips

  • Try a Hot Toddy made with high-grade whiskey, cloves and lemon paired with their divine bread pudding.
  • get the oysters!!!
  • You can order half banana-walnut/chocolate chip bread pudding if you can't decide which one you want!
  • If you don't get the chocolate chip bread pudding dessert your a fool
  • Happy hour from open until 6:30: $1 clams $1.50 oysters. Muscadet for $8/glass, $25/bottle
  • bone marrow is tops. comparable to prune and landmarc.
  • Craig is super sweet and always has good rec's!
  • Um, am I at the Macaroni Grill? Because that's what it feels like (kids, teenagers, kitschy menu, and all...). To be fair, I haven't ordered yet, but am not optimistic...
  • Not only is the food here the very best every time (the duck, the braised rib, the fried chicken), but the service is truly impeccable. A perfect dining experience that spoils you for other places.
  • Very very very happy with the branzino.
  • The fried chicken is excellent.
  • I miss the sushi bar, but what remains is a very good, if expensive, seafood-enhanced steakhouse.
  • Amazing service! Oysters are yum! Got the bone marrow and super indulgent. Blue ribbon special roll is divine. Fried chicken is to die for! Do it!
  • Try the babies!
  • Now that Blue Ribbon Sushi Brooklyn is no more, sit at the bar for a serious sushi smack down. Otherwise, all the classics are still here: get the oxtail, the fried chicken, and any seafood you want!
  • The oysters are bomb! Get some and try all the toppings. And the shrimp cocktail... So succulent!
  • Try the skate.
  • $1.5 oysters $1 clams for happy hour!
  • Food is good, ambience is a bit weird, but kitchen is open til 2 am nightly and service is off the hook.
  • go eat their fried chicken. immediately!
