    The wings are the perfect combo of savory and crispy with a little bit of spice. Sit at the bar and have Micaela craft you something that'll be sure to bring you back.

    For something cool & refreshing, try the julep-like Derby Shrub, and for a strong, boozy cocktail, order the Tribecan, which is a riff on the Manhattan made with chocolate bitters & Carpano Antica. Read more

    Nice servers + better than avg brussel sprouts. Wings, no- easier on the eyes than on the tongue. Quality wet wipe- no one deserves to lick that bland, timidly sweet, sticky sauce from their fingers

    Those chicken wings are a delectable, twice-fried, gently spiced delight. The duck & waffle with that smoked syrup and honey butter should be illegal.

    My husband has deemed this the Best Breakfast Sandwich (bacon, egg, cheese, brioche) and their kale salad is so yummy it defies the normal boring boundaries of a kale salad. My new favorite salad.

    Absolutely fantastic all around! The drinks, food (fried duck and waffles!), music and the staff. James the bartender is awesome. Plus, there is a nightly toast at the bar for everyone. Just do it.

    Amazing restaurant, will definitely be back often! Get the brussel sprouts, cauliflower and beets. The duck & waffle dish was just delicious as everyone said, thanks to everyone who suggested it!!

    The chicken wings are amazing, and the watermelon salad is one of the best things I ever ate. The service is really good and everything is delicious. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in NY.

    The wings, do it. The duck and waffles, do it. Don't drink (alcohol), no problem. Ginger beer concoction, amazing. Waiter: Meet Justin. Meet Ben?, nope. Met S, ;) Overall, bravo Distilled. Bravo.

    Fantastic brunch spot in Tribeca. Must try the roasted mushrooms. Party in your mouth! That being said, everything is good. Outdoor seating available, and they're dog friendly 🐶

    The Spiced Pumpkin Cider (topped with whipped cream) combines pumpkin puree, apple cider, pumpkin spice, and rum to create the perfect fall drink. Best part - it's served in an "I Love NY" mug!

    Excellent for brunches! Get fresh grapefruit juice. Their wings are flavorful and crisp. They offer outdoor seating.

    Pinot Noir served iced cold in an ice bucket? Um, no. Great kitchen, great bar. But the servers need a bit more training than one receives at the local theatre. Give them some time to retrain...

    Sip on the smoky sueño vida or a minty derby shrub while munching on the complimentary cumin-dusted popcorn, or an order of the crispy duck breast atop a waffle. New location should have no problem.

    Burger WeeklyJanuary 9, 2014 The Burger was topped with organic American cheese, pobano relish, and crispy fried onions. The bun on it was so sweet and delicious that my brain almost melted.

    The food is very good, but the menu is a little difficult to figure out. You just have to be open-minded and ask the server questions. (Ours was very helpful)

    I wouldn't come here to shed any pounds but god damn those fried duck and waffles were amazing!! The chicken wings are interesting and definitely worth an order as well!

    Order a Dram Betty, the liver pâté and then the duck and waffles. You won't be disappointed. And a homemade pickle back isn't a bad addition for dessert.

    The wings are a must-order (be sure to eat them with the blue cheese!) as is any cocktail on the menu. So delicious we ate here two nights in a row!

    Benjamin is a master of his craft! His cocktails are amazing. He goes above and beyond and offers very quick, attentive service at the bar. Try the Derby Shrub!!!

    While expensive (you are in TriBeCa), the burger was genuinely one of the best I've had in NYC. Order it rare, get the clothbound cheddar.

    The Franklin Fizz is simply the best beer cocktail. All of the other cocktails are highly recommended as well. Also, get the wings.

    The wings are really great. They manage to create a crispy, oozy coating that is spicy and a bit of a mess. Don't order this if you care about your white shirt.

    Sit at chefs table. Only seats four but comes with complementary moonshine poured by the chef. Makes for an exciting date night!

    Glad to see this place is doing well. The owner will come over to say hi and check on your party, and the scallops are perfect in every way.

    Chicken wings are a mess but worth it. Popcorn also a mess (nutritional yeast + "Korean spices") but also worth it.

    Yes, the popcorn and wings are great, as is everything else on the menu. The service is outstanding. Also had my first glass of mead.

    Keep on ordering up the popcorn which is ridiculous, as are the wings (aka fried chicken in wing sauce heaven). You will not be disappointed.

    The wings are some of the best I've ever tasted, along with the Brussels sprouts. Strong old-fashioned paired with heavy flavors = perfection

    Dangerously delicious Korean-style twice fried wings, see also dangerously handsome Beverage Director, Benjamin.

    I could seriously get religious about the fried duck & waffles. Make sure your table gets at least one so you can sample
