Time Out says:
Following a drama-filled December 2013—which included owner Carl McCoy’s arrest in an alleged drug bust and the subsequent departure of the kitchen crew—acclaimed Williamsburg charmer Gwynnett St has been revamped as a cheekily named gastropub (Lachlan McIntosh killed Button Gwinnett, a signer of the Declaration of Independence). At the helm is Allswell vet Alexis Krisel, who dispatches Gwynnett’s famed whiskey bread, as well as her own originals, including fried ham-hock wontons, charred octopus with clementines, and pappardelle with guanciale and leeks. For drinks, find cocktails like the Wadsworth (gin, Luxardo Triplum, green chili, coriander) and the Mr. Pink (mescal, elderflower, absinthe, Cocchi Americano, pink peppercorn).
Restaurateur Carl McCoy recently turned his troubled restaurant Gwynnett St. into an affordable gastropub with a menu from Allswell vet Alexis Krisel. In addition to bar snacks and shareable plates, Lachlan serves hearty dishes like braised short ribs with polenta, gemelli pasta with mushrooms, and a fried chicken sandwich. So far, early diners are digging the new menu and the cocktail program.
