Whiskey maven Alla Lapushchik and chef Sam Glinn—the team behind brown-spirits haven Post Office—court Brooklyn’s night owls again with this irreverent Parisian brasserie. Glin, an alum of Momofuku Ssäm Bar and Brooklyn Star, delivers comforting fare both Gallic (coq au vin, steak frites) and American (fried chicken, disco fries). Lapushchik (one of the founders of Death & Company and Mayahuel) brings her serious mixology chops to bear on a list of twenty drinks, many of which are tweaked to spotlight seasonal produce. To wit, the Bee’s Knees—a Prohibition-era tipple that mingles gin, honey and citrus—gets souped up with Meyer lemon juice and Perry Tot’s Navy Strength gin. True to its name, the dining room evinces a raffish air, outfitted with tip-sheet-style menus, racetrack betting booths and a floor inlaid with gleaming horse-emblazoned medallions.
