In the spring of 2015, Mile End’s Noah Bernamoff teamed up with Rucola’s Julian Brizzi and Damon Boelte, a longtime bar director at Prime Meats, and Daniel Krieger, a photographer, to open Grand Army Bar. It’s a bar, no doubt, with a cocktail list to keep the most persnickety imbiber happy. But it’s more. There is seafood, for example. “Long Island oysters are portaged to your table in hubcap-size salvers heaped with crushed ice and served with four different sauces fashionably poured into tiny eyedroppers,” wrote Adam Platt, shortly after it opened. Actually, there’s just seafood, but, frankly, you don’t need much else. (336 State St, Brooklyn. 718-422-7867.)
