Lachlan Replaces Williamsburg Gem Gwynnett St.
Gwynnett St. has finally become a dead end, as Eater reports that Carl McCoy's much-talked restaurant changed its name Lachlan, and is now a neighborhood gastropub. The restaurant originally gained notoriety in the Brooklyn dining scene after a two star review by Pete Wells in April 2012, but temporarily closed down this past holiday season after its kitchen staff walked out on owner Carl McCoy when the owner's became embroiled in some legal problems. However, after a brief hiatus, McCoy's team is back up and firing on all cylinders, with Allswell's Alexis Krisel coming over to take charge of the back of the house. The restaurant's beloved whiskey bread is still available, joined by refined pub fare like crispy veal sweetbreads, charred octopus, and mussels. A brunch menu is expected to debut this weekend.
