The Commodore New York

The Commodore – Southern eats & cocktails

The Commodore looks like a typical dive bar from the outside. And pretty much on the inside as well. But Stephen Tanner, the man with vision behind famous Pies ‘n’ Thighs, has brought the ultimate fried chicken sandwich and a long list of amazing tiki-inspired cocktails to the menu.

Go once and you’ll want to go again, but be warned: the bar is almost always packed out with Brooklyn locals, especially after 21:00 on the weekend. Still, if you’re only in town for a short while, it’s worth the battle to make it to the crowded bar, order your food and drinks, then stake out an available table for you and your friends. If all else fails, there’s standing room with high tables where you can share with others who also came for the famous fried chicken in the packed joint.

Special tip: The kitchen stays open on Friday and Saturday till 01:00, so bar hop around the neighborhood and plan to arrive at The Commodore for a midnight snack, especially the hot or mild fried chicken sandwich.
