If you've been looking for your go-to restaurant, we've found it. Alobar is as reliable and consistent as they come. And if you're fond of charcuterie and mushroom toast? Even better.If there’s anything constant about New York, well, it’s that the city is always changing. That’s why finding a reliable neighborhood spot to keep coming back to, while the seasons and the streets shift around us, is as welcome as a hot plate o' comfort food. And at Alobar, the combination of a warm atmosphere, spacious seating, friendly staff, and a seasonal menu makes it easy to come back again and again.
Not to mention, this Long Island City restaurant scouts out locally farmed ingredients and drums up a determination to not let anythin' tasty go to waste. Here, these folks will butcher a whole hog in-house, in order to make everything from salty salami and savory terrines to crispy pork belly and their (rightfully) famous maple bacon popcorn. Plus, be sure to accompany any charcuterie with a side of their homemade pickles or preserves for a palate-happy game of mix-and-match. But the signature dish at Alobar? The wild mushroom toast, no contest. Smoked ricotta, red wine onions, and a rich helping of fresh fungi are topped off with a sunny-side-up egg. Pair it with a sip or two from the extensive whiskey selection, craft beers on tap, or one of the seasonal cocktails for a night of local fare worth many a repeat.
