The informal sister of celeb chef Tom Colicchio’s career-making resto Craft, Craftbar is a comfortably low-key Flatiron spot serving up lots of sharable plates (meat and cheese patters), a menu of rustic mains (pastas, meatballs, pork loin), and decent selection of highbrow wine and beer picks. Crisp clean lines seem intended to give a hip feel, but the warm, earthy colors, swathes of dark, glossy hardwood, and friendly servers actually create a comfortable vibe.
It’s generally a young, trendy crowd of 30-/40-something professionals looking to unwind, mixed in with foodies out for a more reasonable take on Craft.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
It’s upscale casual. Lots of Midtown office types pop by after work, so you’d fit in wearing a suit, but we’d opt for dressy jeans, a chic blouse, and flats.

WHY WE LIKE IT
It works for everything from a quick meal on the fly to a hearty dinner with friends. We like to come for brunch–the portions are perfect, the vibe is laidback but with it, and it’s reasonably priced to boot!
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
We find that while the food is tasty, it lacks the wow-factor of parent Craft
GOOD TO KNOW
Most choose to eat family style here. Chef Tom Colicchio is a judge on Top Chef.
