Sean Josephs, who runs Char No. 4 in Brooklyn, has opened this new Flatiron District whiskey bar and restaurant. The dining room is lighter and more open than that at its Brooklyn counterpart, with much of the color provided by mirrored shelves lined with about 200 whiskeys and whiskies, mostly American but also Scotch, Irish, and even Indian. The short menu combines Southern accents with sophisticated technique for such dishes as crispy duck breast with shaved foie gras, white sweet potatoes, and kale, and bay scallops and shrimp with fennel and celery root in a ham hock broth.  — Colman Andrews 11/19/2012

  • Ask for Andy, he's awesome. Also, extensive bourbon, whiskey, and wine list.
  • Grits. Nothing more and certainly nothing less.
  • The Sazerac is tasty
  • Stellar bourbon menu
  • Like a trip back to my hometown of Maysville, KY. Without having to, ya know, actually go back.
  • Features New American fare with quite a bit of seafood on the menu, as well as seasonal dishes. A selection of bourbon cocktails, a diverse beer list, and wines by the glass.
  • The old fashioned is the best bourbon cocktail in NYC, making our list of "The Tastes That Make the City: NYC Edition."
  • Great cocktails and a lot of whiskey and bourbon. Have to come back for the food.
  • Choose between 1oz or 2oz glass on every whiskey here, great for trying new or enjoying an old favorite!
  • The food is refined without being fussy, and the menu is full of crowd-pleasers. Get the crispy grits with ribbons of country ham, and the poached egg dish with duck confit. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Try one of their many bourbon-based drink. The bartenders will be happy to guide you through their extensive menu of bourbon-based libations.
  • Great for tasting variety. Top shelf is $$, but selection is great. BMH is $50/1oz glass; I get bottles for $42. But at lower level they have old Taylor & heaven hill for $3/glass which is amazing
