Situated within a historical DUMBO landmark dating back to 1892 beneath the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, bar56 celebrates modern American cuisine with French and Italian influence. The menu, available à la carte or as a four-course prix fixe, features seasonally rotating starters, house-made pasta, and innovative mains showcasing meats, fish, and locally sourced vegetables.

The cuisine is complemented by a carefully curated wine list, highlighting 56 wines by the glass focused on style––referred to as ‘Palate Character.’ Additionally, guests can explore a distinctive reserve list and handcrafted cocktails. Each dish presents ‘Palate Character’ pairing suggestions, with all the wines on the list available for purchase next door at their sister retail store and tasting room, taste56.

Whether celebrating a special occasion over dinner in the brick-walled dining room, enjoying a leisurely weekend lunch with friends, or unwinding with a late-night libation at our inviting bar adjacent to the open kitchen, bar56 guarantees an experience that will beckon you back time and time again.
