The Buttery Bar
This Greenpoint spot feels like a cool library, except you’re allowed to eat, drink, and talk as loud as you want. If you’re into goblins, gargoyles, and/or dark academia vibes, you’ll really like The Buttery Bar. If you like not-boring seasonal food and unusual wine and beer lists, you’ll positively love it. Come here for funky pet-nats, elevated salads substantial enough to be meals unto themselves, and some of the best desserts this side of the East River. It’s perfect for a lowkey date, a catch-up with friends, or a brunch that has food you’ll actually want to eat (think: tres leches french toast) and booze too sophisticated to be bottomless. If The Buttery Bar sounds pretentious, you’ve got the wrong idea. It’s giving Indie Sleaze Academic in all the right ways.
