Opened: March
Neighborhood: Greenpoint
Address: 615 Manhattan Ave.

Soon, Luksus, the intimate, tasting menu-only restaurant from Momofuku and Noma alum Daniel Burns, will open in Polish food nucleus Greenpoint. For now its bar up front, Tørst, is enough incentive for any beer geek to visit. A collaboration with Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø of Evil Twin Brewing, the space, awash in cool white marble, almost feels clinical, like you should be riffling through the New Yorker while waiting at an upscale doctor's office. There are no cocktails, no wine, only wooden beer taps and bottles that lead to obscure brews. Many are ever-changing Evil Twin selections, but there are also surprising goodies like the Double Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout from Hoppin' Frog brewery in Akron, Ohio.
