Spitzer's Corner Restaurant Review

: Anchored on a corner that’s bustling with Lower East Side revelers, Spitzer’s is one of the first gastropubs to open in New York with a strictly American culinary theme. After all, what could be more red, white and blue than pork-fat popcorn? (Or for a twist, try its sister, pork-fat edamame.) With two long communal tables and bench-like seating around the main room’s circumference, young LES gourmands snack on comfort food items like the hickory burger, served with crispy and greaseless fries, that is ho-hum but saved by the explosive bacon and caramelized onions. Or try the truffle mac ‘n’ cheese, which includes Parmigiano Reggiano, white cheddar, Fontina, truffles and panko, or the seafood sausage with chunks of Maine lobster, scallops, shrimp and monkfish in natural casing. There are thirty-eight beers on tap, including the rich (and potent) St. Bernardus 12.
