Everything about this place - the food, decor, service - was top-notch. We had planned on having dinner here, but we were a little worried about committing to a tasting menu, as we both have things that we simply won't eat. We settled on brunch instead and we're very glad we did.
The space was roomy and well-appointed in a rustic-industrial Brooklyn kind of way. We were seated at the communal table in the middle of the main dining room, which may not be your thing, but we were lucky to be seated next to some very friendly and interesting local characters.
The Bloody Mary was very tasty, with an incredible kick. We didn't know what to expect when it arrived because it was more brown than bright red. But it tasted like a Bloody should - only better.
The menu consisted of about 14 items, any four of which you could choose for $16. This is a great concept that I would love to see spread to other restaurants. They took all the normal brunch offerings (eggs, toast, sausage, potatoes) and made them seem fresh and original.
My companion ordered the frittata, kale salad, polenta and cauliflower, and I had the potatoes, sunchoke (Jerusalem artichoke) soup, breakfast sausage and bread. The frittata was really the only dish that fell flat. It was served in its own miniature cast-iron skillet, which caused it to cook longer than it should have. It was a little dry, but it still had a nice flavor. The polenta was creamy and out of this world, and the cauliflower dusted with cheddar was addictive. The sunchoke soup was heavenly and the breakfast sausage patties were delicious as well.
Unfortunately I can't comment on this place for dinner, but if brunch is any indication, it's not to be missed!
