Brasserie Harricana

Little Italy
Craft Beer

When this Little Italy microbrewery opened in 2015, it quickly took its place among the city’s most inventive beer destinations, thanks to a rotating selection of its own creative craft brews— a blond yuzu beer and a “Champagne” beer brewed with grape must—all dispensed from the same Flux Capacitor (the high-tech machine calibrates each beer’s temperature and carbonation to its ideal levels). The space, with its long marble bar, slatted wood ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and subway tile flooring, is especially inviting on a sunny day. A menu of quality pub food includes one of the city’s best burgers.
