Achilles Heel

Brooklyn scene-maker Andrew Tarlow of Marlow & Sons wakes up the underserved Greenpoint waterfront with a nautical dive that draws fans of Tarlow’s brand of farm-to-table cuisine. Housed in a 1931 red-brick building, the space features old-school tin ceilings, original mirrors and a piano parked in the corner. A menu of small plates is culled from his family of restaurants: pâté, rillettes and liverwurst from renowned butcher shop Marlow & Daughters, artisanal breads and house-made butter from Roman’s. Raw bar items (oysters and littlenecks), Martha’s Vineyard clam chowder and butter-slick sardine sandwiches fit with the seaside vibe, as do rum cocktails like a Hemingway daiquiri.
