From the group that operates such bustling restos as Village Social and Locali comes Pubstreet in Pleasantville, housed in a renovated building alongside the train station that previously held Iron Horse. It opened two weeks ago.
We scored seats at the bar and scanned the room. The building has been totally gutted and redesigned, enhanced by large contemporary hanging lighting sconces. Glass separated the bar crowd from the main dining room. Pleasant enough. The restaurant of the moment in town and it was loud, very loud. Nothing to muffle the noise. But this did not appear to keep patrons away. It filled up as we were lingered.
We ordered two appetizers: a Chilled Half Lobster with a side of aioli dipping sauce, and their Spicy-Crunchy Tuna Tartare. Both tasted fresh and were very flavorful. The tuna tartare, in particular, I would order again and again. A lovely herbal, spicy, crunchy mixture.
Caveats: We would return but be warned about the acoustics, there is none. Also, our bartender was helpful but a little too quick on the draw as he grabbed my bottle of beer before I had finished.
