Piano bar for hipsters

By it's name, you'd think it's in the city, but the Manhattan Inn is all Brooklyn.

This new Greenpoint restaurant/bar, from the ladies behind Glasslands Gallery, gets a nod in the New York Times today for the quiet nights it provides in the borough. Except, of course, for the ragtime played emitted from the lily-white baby grand by the likes of Smokin’ Billy Slater.

“It’s a little older crowd, maybe looking to have a quieter night," co-owner Rolyn Hu tells the Times.

The crowd better like cocktails as well. Says Metromix: "The cocktail-centric booze menu, run by a former Per Se sommelier, tips its hat to the area with Polish suds like Zywiec." Pair one up with entrees from chef Justin Farmer, who also tips his hat to the neighborhood with borscht and pierogi.

Located at 632 Manhattan Ave. For more information, call 718-383-0885.
