Southern | Carroll Gardens
93 reviews

Called "small, but brilliant" by Time Magazine and one of Brooklyn's best restaurants by GQ, Seersucker is a 32-seat neighborhood spot inspired by the food and hospitality of the South. According to The New York Times, "It’s urbane, soft spoken and modern, the kind of place where actual residents of Chapel Hill, Nashville or Birmingham might go on a Saturday night."

Chef/owner Robert Newton, who hails from Arkansas, has crafted a cuisine inspired equally by his childhood favorites and the Carroll Street greenmarket across the street. He relies upon small farms and indie purveyors for many of his ingredients, so the menu changes frequently based upon what's available and in season. Seersucker's beer, wine and spirits list is all American, and the coffee comes from Counter Culture of Durham, North Carolina.

Char No. 4
American | Cobble Hill
65 reviews

Char No. 4 is a whiskey bar & restaurant inspired by a passion for bourbon. The name refers to the practice of aging bourbon in charred new oak barrels, which gives bourbon its characteristic sweet, caramelized flavors and its beautiful amber hue. Char No. 4 features over 150 American whiskeys and serves a menu of American fare with a focus on smoked meat. The American whiskeys are augmented by an extensive list of whiskeys from Europe and beyond as well as a selection of all-bourbon cocktails.
Char No. 4 is located in a 19th century row house in Cobble Hill Brooklyn. The design environment takes inspiration from this tradition in its treatment of light, its use of color, and in its nod to the form and construction of whiskey barrels both within the water-jet cut pattern of the steel facade, and in custom designed light fixtures. A field of large cylindrical pendants suffuse the space with a tawny glow that sets a mood of sophisticated conviviality for both drinking and dining.

As for the food? Fabulously fresh, locally sourced, lovingly prepared. You’ll find all your southern favorites, from classic shrimp and grits to country fried game hen, with a modern Mama’s Boy twist…because we like to present “low country” in high style.

American | Williamsburg
15 reviews

Potlikker restaurant serves American regional, seasonal food with a fine dining attention to detail paid to dishes with roots in rural and home cooking.

I chose the name "Potlikker" because it is an American dish that does not belong to any one particular person, rather it is the product of a region, as well as a fortuitously delicious product of necessity. Our menu is a modern take on dishes that have been around for many years; some of these things you still find on menus today, some have long since fallen out of fashion and some were never deemed fancy enough to make it onto a restaurant menu in the first place. We make 'em all here, bringing them onto our menu as the weather and growing season dictate.

If you have a party larger than 6 people, please call 718-388-9808 for a reservation, thank you!
