A pioneer on Clinton Street that’s still a neighborhood favorite.  The low-key spot offers an eclectic American menu that features one of the LES’s better burgers, comfort food staples such as brisket and roast chicken and a taco plate with your choice of fish, chicken or veggies. Thuesday-Thursday there’s a nightly “blue plate special” that includes an entree, a glass of wine or beer and dessert for $20.

A New Face in the Kitchen at Alias

 

Freemans

At the end of Freeman Alley (off Rivington), Taavo Somer and William Tigertt created an enchanting hideway, offering fancy comfort food in “hunting lodge” surroundings.  “A rugged, clandestine, colonial American tavern,” as they call it.  There are three bars in the sprawling restaurant, serving creative cocktails. Dinner and brunch are mobbed. Weekday lunch is your best bet.
