I can't help it-I'm obsessed with corner bistros, bars, and taverns in New York. It makes me feel like I'm on a movie set or in a Norman Rockwell painting. Just like The Little Owl, Jack the Horse Tavern has the ideal facade but it's in Brooklyn Heights, just over the Brooklyn Bridge.
And you can't go to Jack the Horse without a post-dinner stroll to the Brooklyn Promenade. You're also just around the corner from the "Moonstruck" house, where Cher lived with her family (19 Cranberry Street). Good food, and great happy hour at the bar too.
