Little King opened recently at 749 Metropolitan Avenue, just off the Graham Avenue stop in Williamsburg. The kitchen is run by the former Five Leaves sous chef Philip Vernier and the menu features high-end bar food including Mussels in Spicy Turmeric Broth ($14), Brioche Grilled Cheese ($10), Scallop Crudo ($13), Roasted Bone Marrow ($6) and the obligatory burger. The booze menu includes a Mezcal Old Fashioned and other inventive cocktails, all in the $13 range.
The space is beautifully designed by Christina Salway and with the closing of Daddy’s we’re happy to have a new spot to drown our sorrows. The owners, Sam Esterman (Eataly, ICE, ‘wichcraft) and John Moskowitz (local bartender, former TV writer) have been friends since grade school, but reconnected, after not seeing each other for decades, while looking for restaurant spaces.
Little King is located at 749 Metropolitan Avenue — the former home of Brooklyn Seoul. They’re open daily from 4pm – 2am.
