American Restaurant & Whiskey Bar
Boasts the largest Amer. whiskey collection in the world. Order the Poached Egg or Brussels Sprouts apps FTW, and follow up w Braised Pork Shoulder & Belly. Wash it down w a Spicy Buck cocktail.
Great bourbon list, if a bit overloud. Service is brisk to perhaps a fault but the corn muffins are fresh from the oven and the beef carpaccio is one of the most tender out there. From Char 4's owner.
Great for tasting variety. Top shelf is $$, but selection is great. BMH is $50/1oz glass; I get bottles for $42. But at lower level they have old Taylor & heaven hill for $3/glass which is amazing
The crispy grits & smoked whitefish mousse are amazing app's to share. Don't order the pasta appetizer-- the 4 small pieces of ravioli with a sliver of crab on top is offensive for a $18 price tag.
The food is refined without being fussy, and the menu is full of crowd-pleasers. Get the crispy grits with ribbons of country ham, and the poached egg dish with duck confit. [Eater 38 Member]
Huge selection of whiskey and bourbon. Modern bar, across from hill country. Can put a dent in your pocket just for a few drinks. Very informative bartenders.
Consistently good food at the bar (even when the kitchen is closed and menu is limited), and the whiskey selection is hard to match. Good cocktails to go along with it, you won't be upset.
Came for brunch and had my mind blown by those Hay Roasted Oysters. Very good Bloody Mary and tasty pulled pork sandwich with whiskey pickles. Will be back for crispy grits & Brussels sprouts!
Start with the fluke tartare and the crispy grits. The duck breast medium rare with strawberries, spring onions and fois gras was divine. Get a 2 oz glass of Lagavulin Distiller's Edition!
Came here for brunch and had the chef's plate. Fried eggs were perfect, sausage and potatoes were great, biscuit was amazing and the Whiskey Milk Fizz blew my mind. Can't wait to go back.
Very nice place. Order any fish meal and you won't be disappointed. Slow cooked char (spring recipe) is very nice. Smoked trout is great as well.
The pulled pork sandwich was lick the juice off dripping down your hand good. And the homemade chips were addictive. Will definitely return to make better use of the bourbon selection!
Great bourbon selection. Good meal. Portions vary to very small to huge depending on what to order. Fish and chicken were good. Flatbread yummy.
Maybe my expectations were too high, really love Char#4, grits were indeed special & trout was delicious but service mediocre, never asked how to cook rib-eye & cheese plate presentation sad, too $$$$
I really liked this place: something super for everyone with solid cocktails and wines by the glass. Loved the autumn salad and hay roasted oysters; nice bourbon martinis!
Great bourbon selection and a nice place for cocktails in NoMad. They have food too. Brussel sprout something smelled insanely good.
The "Guns n Roses" is a shot of Four Roses Bourbon and a bottle of Rum aged Innis&Gunn beer. $14. How perfect is that??
Bartenders were awesome!he gave me a great suggestion &i joked that there wasn't enough in the glass,so he doubled it-4free!lol &i urged him 2hav a shot w/me when the manager wasnt looking;)
Try the poached farm egg with duck confit to start, the sea bass as a main, and the goat cheese cheesecake to finish. Aside: Menus change seasonally.
Chat No 4 with Manhattan prices, but the quality is on point. The whitefish mousse is a highlight, as well as the whisk(e)y selection, of course.
Happy to have Maysville as a neighborhood spot. Chicken under a brick is incredible, along with the crispy grits & cornbread. Amazing crudos as well.
Not great .. brunch menu was OK and food taste has slipped from past experiences; Ragu sauce with cream and the Carbonara was extremely salty - eatable, but not at it's former glory.
Smoked trout was outstanding. "Gold in the River" drink pairing delicious. Hay oysters a must. Stuffed pasta less successful, and Royale cocktail a miss.
Great spot! Loved the decor and I loved everything we tried on the menu! Must Orders: Crab Toast, Roasted Oysters, Crispy Grits & Smoked Trout.
R29: Southern restaurant, 200-plus bourbon collection. The chef is from Alabama. Crispy grits, beef tartare, quiche, bacon bourbon Bloody Mary.
The highlights are the crispy grits, any drink with bourbon & meat dishes...especially pork. There's a back room great for private events.
why they choose to oversalt the beautiful ingredients in the dishes is beyond me. fresh, delicious product masked by a heavy hand makes for a sad diner in me.
Want to learn about American whiskey? Get yourself here pronto! Bartenders will take you on a great journey. Wonder how long it will take me to get through all the bottles?
Duck confit and grits; hay-roasted oysters; smoked whitefish mousse; brussels sprouts; crispy chicken leg and roulade; smoked trout; apple granita.
Amazing service, delicious food, and an unbelievable selection of bourbon and whiskey. Great date spot.
This place knows whisky! After the kitchen closes, the table seating opens up for drinking as well. Be adventurous with your drink choice.
Amazing bourbon selection, great southern-inflected menu, eat anything involving duck. Or marrow. Or pig. Great addition to the neighborhood!
The crispy grits is one of my favorite dishes in all NYC - the hay roasted oysters also makes the list. So many bourbons!
Brussels sprouts are incredible! We almost ordered a second as we loved it so much. Don't bother with the winter veg salad- nothing special
American whiskey bar & restaurant with a menu of smoked & charred food and raw/ chilled seafood- Try the crispy grits, poached egg and bread pudding
If you want everything bourbon-themed, you've come to the right place. Rich and sophisticated comfort food is the name of the game.
It's all about those crispy grits. Get them for the table and you won't regret it. Top it off with a Bulleit and Gunn from the cocktail menu
Entrees are average, but the crispy grits app and extensive whiskey selection make it worth visiting for drinks and snacks.
Nice selection of bourbon and surprisingly good food. The shrimp toast, crispy grits, and smoked trout are highlights.
Extensive bourbon list and very tasty food - but probably better left for dinner with the parents and / or the corporate amex.
Crazy whiskey selection. Recommend committing to dinner and getting a table, bar gets very crowded because of layout.
Amazing place !!!!! Great selections. Employees are down to earth and like to talk to the customers. My new hot spot!!!!!
The hay roasted oysters are a tasty appetizer. More people should cook with hay apparently.
Very well done whiskey selection and cocktails. Food is well done, although entrees a little on the small side.
A massive selection of whiskey of all varieties. Pretty loud and busy inside, but the cocktails made up for it.
As good as sophisticated southern food gets in New York. Amazing pulled pork sandwich on the lunch menu.
Great scotch/bourbon selection. The table ordered the grits, brussel sprouts and I got the steak -- all superb.
