Bar of the Day: Black Mountain Winehouse

by -

This is the seventh in our series on the venues featured in the Brokelyn Beer Book. Today, The Black Mountain Winehouse in Gowanus, where the blazing fireplace will keep you warm through these waning weeks of winter.

415 Union St. between Smith St. & Hoyt St., Gowanus, 718-522-4340

What it is: Rustic, country-inn vibe with a big cozy fireplace and Adirondack porch chairs and a rotating daily menu of wines, beer and little plates.
Why we love it: One block away from Smith Street makes it the perfect blend of accessible yet tucked-away, which adds to the perfect log-cabin atmosphere.
Who to bring: A date you want to close the deal with. If this place doesn’t put him or her in the mood, it’s hopeless.
What to order: Wild mushroom and truffle oil mac and cheese, cold cut plate, or white bean crostini (all food $10)
Black Mountain fun fact: There’s no sign or awning—just look for the stack of firewood out front.
