"Dressler restaurant is the natural outgrowth of the dining concept that owner Colin Devlin and co-chefs Polo Dobkin and Cal Elliott successfully implemented five years ago at their first Williamsburg restaurant, Dumont: a neighborhood restaurant featuring a simple yet thoughtful and well executed menu; well informed and sincere service and a warm, festive atmosphere. Dressler adopts that formula and reaches just a bit further, with a more extensive menu and wine list and a room that was carefully crafted from a completely raw space into a warm yet compelling dining space accented by intricate metal work from Navy Yard artisan sculptors."

The Low Down


Know Before You Go: Although the food is good enough to leave you metaphorically wanting more, the smallish size of the portions may leave you literally still hungry, depending on your appetite.

The Extras: Dressler's more casual sister restaurants Dumont and Dumont Burger are just a stone's throw away.

Fun Fact: Dressler’s siblings include the popular nearby restaurants Dumont and Dumont Burger.

What to Drink: Try house cocktails like the Gretsch, a cool combination of Hendricks Gin, dry vermouth and cucumber ($9) named after the former musical instrument factory nearby.
