As promised, the folks behind Wilfie & Nell have opened their Bowery gastropub, the Wren. Grub got our hands on menus, which look a bit like those of some trendy Bowery neighbors, with their American and British bar-food nods. Think jars filled with everything from chicken liver pâté to oxtail marmalade; also a tasty-sounding roasted-cauliflower soup with bacon broth; and a steak-and-stilton pie shoring up the meat-pie trend. Booze-wise, the cocktail list consists of tweaked classics, plus a well-curated wine and beer list. See it all below, and scope some dishes and the cozy space in our slideshow.
The Wren, 344 Bowery, nr. Great Jones St.
