Time Out New York says:
Warm up by the fireplace with brick-oven-roasted plates at this seasonal New American restaurant, which takes its name from the onetime thoroughfare of old Williamsburg. Wd~50 alum Justin Hilbert presides over the kitchen hearth, dispatching plates like beef-rib cap with pickled bone marrow and parsley root, and Amish chicken served alongside sweet potato, turnips and dates. Carl McCoy, former wine director at Esca, sees to the beverage program, which includes ten draft beers (Brooklyn Brown, Greenport Duck Porter) and a mostly European selection of vino.
Grub Street says:
Another rustic gem opens in Williamsburg, with Gwynnett St. on Graham Avenue. The comforting-chic-Amish-chickeny-seasonal sweetheart is owned by Carl McCoy, former wine director at Esca, with Justin Hilbert, a wd~50 alum, as executive chef. One unique touch? Warm Irish soda bread with creamy cultured butter, served at every table! Gwynnett St. has 60 seats and is designed with (less unique, but still lovely) hardwood floors, communal tables, and exposed-brick walls.
