Style: Talented couple Sheri and Kip Waide have transformed the old Tartine into a Queen Village gem, with a lively eat-at-the-bar scene in front and a slender rear dining room that opens onto a large patio. An impressive debut for Sheri (ex-Django, La Terrasse), whose creative American fare blends seasonality and a light touch.
Specialties: Veal cheeks with fettuccine; fried smelts; sweetbreads with blue cheese bread pudding; smoked pork chop with cranberry beans; cornmeal-crusted trout; roasted chicken; venison chop with risotto; pot de creme; ice cream.

Updated, from a recent revisit

Sheri and Kip Waide's tavern remains a go-to haunt for the city's best manhattan followed by an inventive meal.

The addition of charcuterie-crazy Nick Macri has kept the menu vibrant with wonderful seared mackerel, and a calf's liver with caraway spaetzle that has its own following.
