THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Good Knight Restaurant Review

: This dark, mysterious room is a haven for hipsters seeking a place to truly enjoy their drinks, rather than tie one on. The bar menu spotlights pre-Prohibition cocktails like a Pimm’s cup or sidecar, plus a bevy of more innovative concoctions. The in-demand kitchen, like its following, could probably benefit from a little maturation in the long run, however. A unique twist on shepherd’s pie successfully, if a little confusingly, introduces curried lamb to goat cheese, garlic mashers, turnips and peas. The bacon-wrapped meatloaf is delivered to the table sans bacon (darn!), and its Jim Beam gravy would do better with a few less handfuls of rosemary. But then, we may be missing the point. The Good Knight bills its fare as “fine comfort food.” And here, it likely hits its mark dead-on. If notions of Paris or Vienna are cast aside for thoughts of hearty, warm-your-belly favorites, then the food is an upgrade from even the best mom-cooked meals. Dinner is served until midnight seven days a week, providing a welcome respite when enjoying a night on the town.
