This small, quirky spot (there’s a cocktail named Dan Smith Will Teach You Guitar by Eben Klemm of Pearl & Ash) is serving up Louisiana country cooking, highlighting its French and Canadian influences: grilled oysters with cabbage garlic butter and Gulf shrimp barbecue with potato salad, with seasonal produce coming from the restaurant’s own backyard garden. Snuggle into one of King Bee's plush banquette with one of the “expressive, eclectic” wines. 424 E. Ninth St, East Village
