Gwynnett St. Is Now Lachlan, a Neighborhood Gastropub

New, 6 comments

The Williamsburg restaurant that was Gwynnett St. is now a casual gastropub called Lachlan. The change comes about a month after owner Carl McCoy's much-publicized brush with the law and the departure of the kitchen crew. McCoy and the other owners of the restaurant hired chef Alexis Krisel, formerly of Allswell, to run the kitchen. The restaurant has been completely rebranded, and Krisel's new menu is now being served nightly. Entrees are priced $14 to $16, and the menu includes a fried chicken sandwich for $14.

In a statement about the change, the Lachlan team notes: "We are immensely proud of what we accomplished these last two years and extremely grateful of the support we received from our customers, press and staff. However, we have decided to take our restaurant in a different direction and will continue with our tradition of great cuisine and cocktail program." Brunch is slated to launch next week, and the website notes: "Take away available, please call us with your order."

A reader sends along a picture of the new signage (above) and a hypothesis about the name: "Based on a quick Google search, I'm guessing the Lachlan name comes from Lachlan McIntosh, the man who got into a dispute and killed Button Gwinnett (one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence)." So, Gwynnett's dead, and Lachlan lives. Check out the new menus:
