MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Ace restaurateur Andrew Tarlow (of Diner, Marlow & Sons, The Reynard and more) brings next-level bar food to a tavern in Greenpoint—and the result is predictably spectacular. Located near the East River, Achilles Heel is beautifully worn, with big windows and an authentic dockside tavern warmth. But, the real treasures are turned out of its tiny kitchen, where the menu is succinct but surprise dishes are common. A crisp three-bean salad is paired with thick aïoli and soft-crumb sourdough; while lobster mushrooms are pooled in a perfect tomato dashi. Regulars know not to miss their array of fresh bread (from She Wolf Bakery); briny oysters aplenty; as well as an inventive take on open-face sandwiches-especially that sweet corn and baby eggplant toast.
