Burnside (506 Grand Street between Union Avenue and Lorimer Street in Williamsburg)

After Williams & Bailey, this time, I had only to cross Grand Street for the next stop, Burnside.  A cocktail bar with a bit of a Wisconsin theme, Burnside is a welcome addition to the Grand Street NYC pub crawl.  It has a nice laid-back feel and a friendly staff.  The space has a seating area in the front half and the bar area is in back (Burnside also has a small backyard).  The drink offerings include several House cocktails that will run you only $10 (take that, pricey Manhattan cocktail bars!) including some seasonal picks and shot specials.  For beer, there is a handful of tap and bottle offerings.  The Wisconsin theme includes a few beer from the Lakefront brewery as well as Leinenkugel’s.   Cheese curds and brats on the food menu complement the beer selection.  A solid spot, I look forward to visiting Burnside again.
