Now that we can all act like Alec Baldwin during all stages of a flight, there is nothing to stop us from our Candy Crush addiction. God help us.

  • Neon Genesis: Randolph Brooklyn Open now
     
    The latest from the people behind Randolph at Broome and Randolph Beer is full of neon signage, graffiti, and 12 draft lines, plus a selection of bottles, wines, and cocktails.
     
    104 S. 4th St. (Berry St.), Williamsburg (718-599-0412)

  • Buttered Up: Empire Biscuit Open now
     
    You can have all the biscuits all the time at this 24-hour shop offering lard or all-butter versions stuffed with maple butter, foie gras butter, Scotch eggs, and fried eggplant.
     
    198 Ave A. (E. 12th St.), East Village (646-682-9529)

  • Down South: Route 66 Smokehouse Open now 
     
    American classics are on the menu at this spot (pictured) where you'll find pimento cheese, shrimp and grits, and sliced brisket sandwiches that you can wash down with rustic bourbon and Cheerwine.

  • Scaled Up: Bo's Kitchen and Bar Room Open now

  • Battle of the Belge: Ô Merveilleux Open now
