There was a hair inside my food I told the host she took the plate away and did not even offer me an appetizer or drink as an a apology. It felt as though my complaint was a bother. Will not go back.

This is a great restaurant, and just a subway ride out of Manhattan. The L train station is just half a block away...so go. The space is open and casual. A bit loud, but that is of no consequence. The food is beautiful, both in...More

This is the best food I've had in Brooklyn. It's perfect for a special meal. I strongly recommend the duck breast! Also desert and drinks were pretty affordable.
