The owners of Gwynnett St. have transformed their East Williamsburg eatery into this casual gastropub serving upscale American pub fare; the decor remains the same, a mix of exposed brick, hardwood floors and soft lighting.

About the Restaurant

Gwynnett St. — the winner of Esquire magazine's Best New Restaurant award in 2012 — stands apart from Williamsburg's crowded dining scene with its imaginative and artistically plated Modern American cuisine. Executive chef Justin Hilbert, who honed his craft at Wylie Dufresne's critically acclaimed restaurant WD-50, might make tofu from cashews and pair it with roasted nuts plus cauliflower prepared two ways. Or, serve Amish chicken, brined and rubbed with burnt hay ash (yes, hay ash), alongside rutabagas, beets and potatoes — arranging every component just so, like a work of art. In contrast, the dining room is unembellished, with exposed brick, a few angled mirrors and an old brick oven (once used for pizzas, it now turns out miniature loaves of fresh-baked whiskey bread). And its small size means that parties larger than six are out of luck. Lest Hilbert's fancy food make diners forget which borough they're in, cheekily named cocktails like the Whatever Dude (vodka, toasted coconut, orgeat, lemon) serve as a reminder that this is Brooklyn—at its finest.
