Red Hook Tavern

Written by

Red Hook Tavern is from the same people behind Hometown Bar-B-Que, the single best place to get barbecue in NYC. It’s also in Red Hook, but it’s a different sort of operation modeled on old-school bars and steakhouses like Corner Bistro and Peter Luger. It’s just one long room with brick walls and vintage-looking light fixtures, and it feels exactly like the kind of place where you’d want to have a mug of beer and burger. And that’s exactly what you should do here. The burger is salty and buttery with some melted American cheese and a big patty that’s surprisingly light, and it’s worth a trip from another borough. There’s also an excellent steak with a salty charred crust (and a side of creamed spinach that almost tastes healthy), as well as a romaine wedge salad that comes with a thick slab of some extremely good bacon. Stop in and grab a seat at the bar (where it’s walk-in-only), or make a reservation and have a heavy and rewarding dinner with a couple of people who appreciate red meat.
