Brunch

Don’t let the name fool you: while Schiller’s is a destination for excellent craft cocktails, it’s worth noting that the kitchen is helmed by Chef Shane McBride of Balthazar fame. Regulars come to this bright bistro (think polished white-tiled walls, a Deco-embossed ceiling, with black and white checkered floors) for the juicy steak frites, succulently slathered with maître d’ butter, the booze-loving cocktails (pro tip: get the Jerry Thomas Manhattan) and the formidable oyster happy hour. If you were unable to snag a highly coveted reservation for brunch and dinner, caffeinate up: it’s also a decent late-night spot.
