“Meet you at the station” takes on a whole new meaning now that the Dinky Bar and Kitchen has rolled into town. Located in the historic stone station house of the former “Dinky” train that connects Princeton to the Princeton Junction station, this joint is jumping.
As the new Arts and Transit neighborhood takes shape to transform University and community life with a cultural, social, and dining destination, the Dinky Bar and Kitchen’s location adjacent to the Princeton campus makes this the perfect spot pre-McCarter Theatre, post work, for a weekend jaunt to town, and anytime in between.
Inside this “sister bar” to Witherspoon Street’s farm-to-table hotspot Agricola, expect the same masterful attention to decor, as well as a clever and delicious menu of locally sourced, ingredient-driven snacks, small plates and more. The inviting bar features craft beer, unique cocktails and small production wines. Our A-LIST picks? The Pickled Deviled Eggs, the Kale and Arugula salad, and the Dinky Cheeseburger.
Watch below to see a behind-the-scenes look at this in-town gem, and to hear from the owner about the latest plans for “Cargot”, the French brasserie opening soon:
