Rusty Knot Restaurant Review

: Opened by Ken Friedman (one of the movers behind The Spotted Pig and The Breslin Bar & Dining Room, among other New York restaurants), this West Village nautical-themed bar and eatery doesn’t miss a cliché: captains' wheels and hokey paintings of ships in the night are tacked on the walls, a fish tank competes for visual attention, and a wall board with plastic letters acts as the menu. There’s plenty of pub grub goodness, split between affordable snacks to go with the beverages (boxed wine, tapped brews, and cocktails served in tiki glasses) and more substantial entrées, like a soft pretzel-wrapped hot dog, Sloppy Joes, tacos and fish po’ boys, all for less than $10 each.
