NY Mag says:

Greenpoint Heights is a neighborhood oasis, replacing Onyx Café (whose monogram still marks the floor) in a mostly residential area of Greenpoint. The front room features a dark-wood bar, two flat screens, a few booths, and walls peppered with antique frames and mirrors. The spacious back room is great for large parties, with two more flat screens and a photo booth. The huge backyard sports heat lamps in colder weather, and plenty of seating. Food leans craft-beer-friendly: there are wings with Buffalo, barbecue, or cilantro-lime seasonings. A seasonal patriotic red, white and blue salad mixes roasted tomatoes, bacon, and blue cheese, served with a hunk of cornbread. In case the enormous burger or pulled pork sandwich aren’t enough alone, a pile of shoestring fries accompanies each. Baked shells and cheese pair gouda, cheddar and pecorino romano under cracker crumbs with the option to add bacon. Perfect for a snack or an entire meal, the mix-and-match taco selection piles thought-out ingredient combinations on too-small tortillas, like chorizo with pickled onions, roasted sweet potato and crema, or cornmeal crusted tilapia with asparagus, cotija and chipotle mayo.
