It’s hard to categorize this addition to the Winner mini-empire. It’s an all-day cafe, but also a wine bar. It has American and Italian dishes, but also Japanese and Caribbean ones. We’ll just call it one of our favorite spots to eat and drink in Crown Heights—either at the long wooden bar or in a skylit dining room at the back. The menu is anchored by the sourdough, which has our vote for the best in NYC, and meat sourced from Winner's own butcher shop. Ask your server about a natural wine they’re into, and pair it with a chunky duck and prune terrine, which comes with the spongy, crusty bread. Or, get a drip-down-your-hands cheeseburger with pickled green tomatoes, which takes an already great sandwich to another level.
