Where to Get the Best Waffle Fries You'll Ever Eat
Movie theatre/bar hybrid Alamo Drafthouse brings a multi-faceted entertainment experience to Downtown Brooklyn in the mold of Williamsburg’s Nitehawk Cinema, Bushwick’s Syndicated, and the Lower East Side's Metrograph. Come ready to get weird because this place turns up the camp with an offbeat bar that features a display of grotesque, medical-themed wax sculptures and masks that harken back to a time (the 1870s) when we craved something edgier than Madame Tussauds. Some 48 drafts are available, as are cocktails by Vincent Favela of Williamsburg’s Huckleberry Bar and Tribeca's Ward III. The food is by Fernando Marulanda of Tavern on the Green and Per Se, which beats the hell out of butter-drenched popcorn... but don’t fret, that’s available, too. You can order your food straight into any of the seven theaters, where a mix of classic films and new releases are shown.
