Literary lair Chumley’s has been revived in the West Village (86 Bedford St.) after nearly a decade of chimney collapses and failed attempts at reopening the pub. Owner Alessandro Borgognone (Sushi Nakazawa) has taken over the space, which began as a speakeasy during Prohibition in 1922. The walls in the window-less den are lined with original book jackets — an homage to some of America’s greatest writers like John Steinbeck and Ernest Hemingway. Recent Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan even used to tip a few back here. The new Chumley’s is a restaurant with elevated pub food like bone-marrow-topped burgers; scallop crudo; and chicken al cognac. Don’t miss craft cocktails like the “It’s Smokey In Here,” a whiskey cocktail made with Amaro, lemon, fig preserves and club soda.

Meals are made with feel-good ingredients like almond milk bechamel, instead of dairy, to create a lighter veggie lasagna . Expect carrot risotto with fresh carrot juice; jicama-avocado salad; and carob-coconut cake.
