Just off the Morgan L Train stop, Tutu’s, a cute gastropub serving reasonably-priced American fare, has the vibe of a locals’ hangout The dining room is adorned with dozens of paintings, seemingly hung at random above its spacious booths. Venture to the back room in the evening for live music and performance. The staff is always friendly, making Tutu’s a nice place to have a meal or a drink. The brunch is popular and has a great Bloody Mary. At night, we enjoy their Veggie Burger and the crunchy Sriracha Chicken Bites.
Tutu’s is the kind of place you can depend on. Whether you’re here for the oyster happy hour or a solo late-night burger or a hangover healing brunch, the food is solid, the prices are reasonable, and the vibes are good. There’s also plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and it transitions from more a restaurant to a bar feel as the night goes on. Come late enough, and you can join a dance party in the back room.
Near the Morgan Avenue stop on the L train, Tutu’s is part of the blossoming ecosystem around Roberta’s, the pizza joint that ascended to destination dining. The sprawling split-level space includes a bar cluttered with weathered booths and old portraits, and a raw basement space warmed by space heaters.
