That’s what you’ll be hearing from savvy suburbanites and horny hausfraus (rumor has it the handmade bar is outfitted with vibrating barstools!) in Brookhaven. My friend BB, an Ivy League Wall-Streeter, tossed out his Oxford shirts and strapped on a tool belt to build his new upscale pub and restaurant, slated to open its doors to someone other than inspectors and alcohol distributors very soon.
Not only is BB hands on during the design and construction phase, he has also been cultivating his own organic produce nearby, including heirloom tomatoes and figs. Did I mention he’s also a CIA trained chef?
Unpretentious, local, and fun, There recreates the relaxed vibe of The Spotted Pig in Manhattan. The prime corner space is more glass than sheetrock, with modern furnishings to match. Burgundy leather booths add warmth to the otherwise cool space, lit by green lamps that cast a supernatural glow along the dark wood bar.
Chef Ryan Hickey, last serving as Todd Ginsberg’s sous at Bocado, will be manning the kitchen, serving up goodies like boar sausage and smoked trout deviled eggs. My sneak peak at the menu revealed signature burgers served on Holeman and Finch breads and salads that promise to rival the city’s best.
305 Brookhaven Avenue, in Town Brookhaven complex
