The Four Horsemen

New York, US

Modern, flavour-packed food and a superlative wine list, plus warm hospitality with a youthful mantra, equals good times. In Brooklyn’s vibrant Williamsburg neighbourhood, The Four Horsemen manages to strike a delicate balance between informal-yet-masterful fine dining and buzzy watering hole with zero sign of any apocalypse. Opened by James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem fame) back in 2015, its renown has since branched across the East River, drawing crowds from across the boroughs for its standout attention to natural and biodynamic wines, with a list that reads more like a gentle education than an offering. The small space – which trickles onto a sidewalk terrace – is set up to make guests feel right at home, with neutral colourways, soft wood, an open kitchen and breezy artwork. It’s a feeling that reverberates in the kitchen, where Nick Curtola hammers out high-end, fuss free, locavorian dishes you’ll be talking about long after you leave. You know the drill: fried, ricotta-filled squash blossoms, yellowfin tuna with secret-weapon yuzu kosho, clams in a saffron broth, pork ribs with plum glaze and giardiniera, fried skate with marinated cucumbers et al.
