Now Open at 11am for Lunch Monday Through Friday
Best of NYC 2015
With its generic name and standard gastropub interior (brick, reclaimed wood), it’s easy to see how The Grand Bar and Grill has stayed somewhat under wraps since opening in 2013. But in a neighborhood dominated by exotic ingredients and $17 small-plate dining, the Grand stands out for its flawlessly prepared classic fare from executive chef Wes Davis, modestly priced and served by the most affable staff in the area. Shishito peppers, lightly breaded and drizzled in citrus oil, put every other restaurant’s version of this ubiquitous dish to shame, and the fluffy handmade pierogi (served with habanero jam and sour cream) have silenced the most skeptical Polish dining companions. The short-rib-and-brisket-blend cheeseburger has, for one neighborhood resident, turned the Grand into “a real problem. I’ve started coming here like three times a week, not even counting Seamless.” With comfortable booths and a vast communal table in back, it’s perfect for large parties; alternately, you could post up at the restored 1870s bar with a classic cocktail and a pile of organic wings. If you’re tired of forking over $20 for a single jewel-like local beet, check out the Grand before it turns into Roberta’s.
The Grand Bar & Grill is located at 647 Grand Street between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
