Something's brewing in Brooklyn...
VINTAGE AMERICAN TAVERN
WITH CONTEMPORARY FLAIR.
YOUR FAVORITE NEIGHBORHOOD NOSTALGIC COOL
Established in 2010, OX CART TAVERN instantly became a Ditmas Park darling for unique, chill atmosphere and amazing culinary genius. Featuring now-legendary burgers and other creative, elevated tavern fare, owners Jim Mamary and Chef David Pitula envisioned not just another watering hole, but crafted unmistakable nostalgic cool with their contemporary spin on a vintage American tavern.
A short stroll from the "Q" at the corner of Newkirk & Argyle is where you'll meet friends, enjoy two big flat screens and revel in amazing, homemade dishes and friendly service for nightly dinner and weekend brunch amidst casual charm. Insiders know that every aspect of Ox Cart's quaint interior was hand chosen by the two owners, who even built the deliberately rustic tables, to complete a cozy, at-home feel.
Belly up to the bar of this casual, hip gastropub to indulge in new house cocktails, wine and wide selection of beer both bottled and on tap, and of course ever fresh, handcrafted, serious food.
In forging a new neighborhood tradition, Ox Cart Tavern also pays homage to old ones. The name conjures up the year 1937, when Old Ox Cart Beer was made at Standard Brewing Company in upstate Rochester. Unmistakable on our building's side is the vintage billboard replica of Netherlandish master Vincent Van Gogh's 1884 "The Ox Cart," respectfully chosen to reflect Ditmas Park's large Dutch settlement history.

“Ox Cart is a slow sip of whiskey...it’s the rare spot where a level of class is maintained, yet you can relax with no pretensions.”
