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.

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.
