“Pier 116-- Closed”

  Night Out Seafood Brooklyn Cheap Eats Good

I think it's fair to say that Smith Street is not exactly the Hamptons. There’s no sand, little sun, not many botoxed babes in Prada swimsuits, and hardly any surf to speak of, unless you count the waves of street cleaner slush flowing down towards Atlantic Avenue. But with the opening of Pier 116 (in the space that used to be That Bar), you might catch a seagull or two circling above, looking for some tasty crumbs.

Come inside and you’ll find crowds of happy families sitting elbow-to-elbow with vintage-clad locals at this windswept shack-style pub. The menu serves up that sand-in-your-toes feeling all year long, with fat, sea-salty steamers served in pails ($9/$18), assorted mayo-slicked New England-style sandwiches like the succulent, meaty lobster roll with fresh homemade slaw, pickles, and old-bay potato chips, ($15), a crisp, golden fried clam roll ($9), and a lovely assortment other sum-sum-summah-time roadside eats like crunchy buttermilk fried chicken ($12), and meaty, flavorful baby back ribs ($12, and these are better than the ones at Pearson’s). To prevent choking on all this lip-licking sea shore grub, the Pier keeps a terrific selection of ice cold brews on tap like Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale ($5), an Old Speckled Hen ($5), or a Stone Smoked Porter ($8). All this can be yours, without a Jitney. Just grab the F train to Bergen St.

Pier 116, 116 Smith Street, b/w Pacific & Dean, 718-260-8900.
