Whiskey for Williamsburg is nothing new, but at Noorman’s Kil, opening Wednesday, the focus won’t be the usual Maker’s Mark drunk by bearded dudes in the ‘burg, but rather more obscure brands like Old Potrero and Springbank, plus Scotches. "We wanted to kind of educate a younger generation of whiskey drinkers. There’s that weird stigma that it’s all Park Avenue guys with suits," says Marcel Simoneau, one of the four young co-owners of the Grand Street spot. As for pairing this with grilled cheese, well, "Those are the two things we really like," Simoneau explains.
