Pilot is a seasonal oyster bar aboard one of America's most prized wooden schooners. Showcasing sustainably harvested oysters and nautically inspired cocktails, Pilot presents a concise menu of ingredient-driven seasonal plates by nationally acclaimed chef, Kerry Heffernan. Over the course of Pilot's nearly 100 year history, she's led many lives: as a contender to be the fastest sailboat in the world, as the country's longest serving pilot ship, as a ferry for soldiers in World War II, and as a research vessel that circumnavigated the world twice.

A hip Parisian-style neighborhood bistro popular for late-night bites & brunch.

128 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Bar Tabac imparts vibrant energy to the Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn and compliments Smith Street’s bohemian spirit. The colorful corner storefront embodies the spirit of the tabacs in France, the ubiquitous small storefronts and annexes in bars that sell lottery tickets, chewing gum, and of course, tobacco. Bar Tabac may not actually sell tobacco, but the lively camaraderie and antique 1960’s bar conspire to compose a unique place that is authentically French but delightfully local.

The restaurant has live jazz four times a week, storied weekend brunches and irresistible Bistro Bites. Guests return again and again to enjoy themselves in the lively bar, or to spend an intimate evening in the back room amidst the glow of candles illuminated under the atrium skylight.
