Think cheeses, two or three types of charcuterie, a couple of entrees, many salads.

Bushwick is getting a new music venue and high-end bar called the Well... In the front is a bar with twenty kinds of champagne and a wall of liquor, but mostly beer—three hundred varieties; in the back is an eleven-thousand-square-foot outdoor performance space...

Heading for a new restaurant (there is one!) I stepped on a rat. Quite large. Carried me a yard or so down the street.
Imagine the fun if you stepped on two at once.

[M]ost of the pastas hover around $25. This ought to be enough to buy bucatini that is cooked on both ends. -- Pete Wells on Caravaggio ( * review)
Tonight, there was a dessert of coconut, rhubarb, and black olive. Obvious in its execution how innovation and experiment, when introduced for their own sake, are annoying. --irnscrabblechf52, May 9, 2013

A new farm-to-table restaurant called Dear Bushwick will open at 41 Wilson Avenue on September 18. Chef Jessica Wilson (Prune, Goat Town) will prepare English dishes like sausage and meat pie, and bar consultant Natasha David (Vandaag, Maison Premiere) tells Eater that the bar program will be like "taking a ride with a British sailor during the height of the British Empire."
Well, there'll be rum. What else...?

The Victualing Board actually kept meticulous records of a sailor’s official rations: 1 lb of bread and 1 gallon of beer per day (!), plus 1 lb of pork twice a week, 2 lbs of beef twice a week, or butter and cheese the other three days. But when the going got tough out in the middle of watery nowhere, did sailors actually get their rations? Yes, it seems, based on an analysis of nitrogen isotopes extracted from the bones of 80 sailors. The elevated levels of nitrogen suggested that sailors did get as much beef and pork as the Victualing Board recorded. And despite being at sea, they didn’t seem to eat much fish.

I like to think of small Bushwick bistros as fightin' ships 'o the line, athwart the Spanish main, so it doubtless makes sense for them too.

This article doesn't provide much evidence, though:
- Bushwick Natural (pictured) is just a health food store.
- Momo is poor: do not travel for it.
- Mazelle's "fare" consists of bar snacks. Hard to put a meal together.
- Skytown: this used to be Beauty Bar. Limited, cafe-style menu.
- 983: Former Life Cafe, and yes, improved.
Dear Bushwick, which is a restaurant, is unlucky to be omitted. If you're looking for bar food, Tandem and Miles are good options.
