If you’re seeking out that mildly hallucinatory buzz that only comes from eating Szechuan peppercorns, go to Pepper Twins. The Pepper Twins Chicken is what most people come here for, but we suggest rounding things out with the sauteed pork with oyster mushrooms and pork dumplings to even out the burn. This place is super casual and BYOB, and the original location in Montrose is conveniently located next door to Boheme - the perfect bar for a drink to settle your stomach after consuming your body weight in chiles.

Halyards review image

If you’re in Gowanus, and you need a normal bar that’s just a little nicer than a dive, go to Halyards. There’s a pool table and occasionally a DJ.
