MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This romantic retreat, housed in an historic Brooklyn enclave, is notalgia embodied—as if it’s been a corner fixture for some hundred years. It hasn’t, of course, but decorative design details like silver bowls filled with bright citrus, a pressed-tin ceiling, and tufted leather banquettes impart that sophisticated, old-school vibe.
Chef/co-owner Bryan Calvert sources most of the herbs—that are featured on your plate—from the rooftop garden. His dishes may wander from an immeasurably gratifying chicken and turmeric brodo with edible micro flowers, to an herbaceous and distinctly Californian ensemble of asparagus, shaved radish, and lemon ricotta. For an appealingly contemporary resolution, go for the rye chocolate cake with elderberry-blueberry coulis.
