Cooper’s Craft & Kitchen, whose original location is in the East Village, has opened a second location in Chelsea.
This 118-person gastropub with an emphasis on craft beer (24 beers are rotating on tap, in addition to the bottle menu) debuts with a craft beer custom-made by New York breweries Greenpoint Harbor, Peekskill Brewery, and Barrier Brewery.
Executive chef Brendan Neville’s menu features Roasted Salmon with Parsnip Purée, Steak Tartare with a Farm Egg, Mussels & Fries, Poutine, and Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Bread Crumbs. It also features dishes that demand to be paired with a drink: for example, the Craft beer-battered Fish Tacos, Handmade Pretzels with Beer-infused Cheese Dip, and Cooper’s Poutine.
