Until recently, the best thing to eat on Fulton Avenue near Clinton, in Clinton Hill, has been the killer spicy chicken wings from the unlikely fowl artistes at Yafa Deli. But that could change with the opening of the Wallace, which bowed last night with an eclectic, seasonal American menu. A project of chef Jon Wallace (formerly of Thistle Hill Tavern and Buttermilk Channel) and his fiancée Jessica Soule, the restaurant focuses on simple fare like steamed cockles with Benton's ham, seasonal flatbreads, and braised oxtails over polenta. See the spare, homey space and some of the food straight ahead in our slideshow.
