This tavern is more restaurant than bar, and it has some distinctly laid-back, neighborhood vibes. Imagine a Blue Ribbon Brasserie opened by your parents. That’s Jack the Horse. Service is friendly, and they serve things like roast chicken, oysters, and steak. When you want to have a low-key night and spend a decent amount on a good dinner, this place is a solid option. It’s also an ideal place to bring your parents.
Jack the Horse Tavern is permanently closed.

Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Gran Electrica serves simple, excellent Mexican food and creative cocktails. It also has a great back patio.
