Now, John Roberts—the man who brought the world the pickleback and Bushwick Country Club—and Tom Chadwick of Dram have brought this bar to Williamsburg. It is a place that really does feel like “the 50s crossed with 1974,” as Roberts describes it, where you can drink Michelob amber on draft, sit in dark vinyl banquette booths, and even order a delicious 16oz ribeye steak from a Michelin-recommended chef until 3am for a mere $24. Here, tan and cream vintage wall tiles and lamp shades with beer logos will make you feel you are revisiting your favorite bar from a 1970s young-adulthood you never had. And though it is just one month old, you can find all of this at The Starlight…. “You know, they were looking for someone in the kitchen with this awesome 70s vibe, but not like a theme park, just one that feels like comfort food, and kind of nostalgic but not kitschy,” said Pogrebinsky, who had stepped out of the kitchen to present me and a friend with some incredible potato-filled and caramelized onion pierogies, Moroccan tinned sardines with lemon and rye toast, and high-end house-made jalepeño peppers stuffed with cream cheese and sharp cheddar, and wrapped in a spring roll wrappers and deep-fried. “And I’m like, that’s what I do!”
