MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Settled merely steps away from the Brooklyn Museum, this sleek and sparse location is a jewel in the city's dining crown. Enter to find yourself immediately peering into a long galley kitchen; the bar is set back, within a pretty enclosed atrium. Stark walls with cream wainscoting, brass-and-white globe lighting, and a distressed wood-paneled ceiling all set the stage for creative cooking, punctuated by seasonality and complexity. Well-priced, product-driven tasting menus make this dining experience utterly enjoyable. Snag a table by the chef’s station to witness the action—like luscious uni being dolloped over miso-cured scallops in a delicious apple- and Thai chili-broth. Snappy rutabaga noodles then arrive covered in fontina cream with notes of deep and rich chicory. Your meal may reach its peak thanks to koji-rubbed smoked beef, or bright Steelhead trout with a bergamot-infused cream sauce. Desserts too attest to the kitchen's creative vision and deep culinary wisdom. Highlights may include caramelized white chocolate cream with Meyer lemon curd and meringue triangles, or a "chocolate bar" layering a dark shortbread cookie with decadent chocolate-sesame ganache.
